With his career coming full circle, Greg Nicotero was the special makeup effects designer on "George A. Romero's Land of the Dead". In this exclusive look into his studio, we see how a zombie makeup is created step-by-step, how a "zombie bite" is rigged and executed, and how the different zombie heads and props from the film were designed and realized.
