Not new, but new to me, this is Greg Nicotero’s short newsreel style film about the shocking truth behind the monster movies of decades past, in which the monsters were working for scale. In scale. in a full-scale Hollywood talent agency that barely trained them, shot them full of tranquilizers at the end of each scene, and usually managed to feed them without losing an arm and a leg.
Nicotero’s the special effects makeup designer behind AMC’s The Walking Dead, and he’s one of the criminal masterminds behind KNB EFX Group (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the Syfy Dune, and so on).
Honestly, this is pretty much what I figure was really going on. It must have been pretty difficult. You only get one take for the Wolfman scene!
