Greg Nicotero is one hell of a guy. He’s a producer, director and we can’t forget that he’s an FX guru!
He is the creative force behind tons of our favorite horror movies and TV shows. Because of that, he will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 17th annual New York City Film Festival in the horror genre.
Other notable honorees include George A. Romero, Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Adrienne Barbeau, Tony Todd, Roger Corman, Tom Savini and Robert Englund.
Nicotero got his start with Romero in his 1985 hit Day of the Dead. Not stopping, Nicotero has worked on fan favorites like From Dusk til Dawn, Army of Darkness, Annabelle, and tons more. Most recently, he is known for his outstanding work on AMC’s The Walking Dead and for revamping Creepshow as its showrunner.

Little behind the scenes of CREEPSHOW! Full animatronic zombie puppet with head, neck and jaw movement. The plot involved someone who’s arms and legs were cut off and face eaten away so we cut slots in the elevated set and used rods to simulate body movement then the tracks were erased by vfx. TIMES IS TOUGH IN MUSKY HOLLER! #knbefxgroup #puppet #behindthescenes #creepshowtv
You can catch Greg Nicotero’s Creepshow on Shudder as well as Season 10 of The Walking Dead on AMC.
