Notes & Trivia Edit

Other works Edit

  • Worked as an assistant to special effects wizard Tom Savini.
  • Gregory Nicotero was also the special effects supervisor on the 1995 film The Walking Dead. However, this was a war movie and bears no relation to Nicotero's later work on the critically acclaimed AMC series, The Walking Dead.
  • Attended the "Walking Dead" panel at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2010.
  • It is either irony or destiny that Nicotero was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh is notable in horror film fiction as the birth place of the Night of the Living Dead franchise. The movie was shot in and near Pittsburgh and it's cast and crew were primarily Pittsburgh natives.
