Watch: Greg Nicotero's Short Film United Monster Talent Agency
"What if the movie monsters of yesteryear weren't make-ups, but real semi-trained creatures brought in to be filmed?" That's the concept of Greg Nicotero's new short film United Monster Talent Agency, which debuted at Fantastic Fest and is now online. Quint from AICN first found the video, which was debuted on the AMC TV blog. Given that it's a few weeks away from Halloween, this is the perfect time to watch this fun horror-themed short, which features guest appearances by Eli Roth, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Darabont. Now I want to see Nicotero direct a full-length feature! Get it while its hot - check out his short film below.

"You're likely already familiar with the classic monster films of Hollywood's golden age. Now, learn how tough it was to get those monsters to behave on camera!" United Monster Talent Agency is directed by special effects make-up designer Greg Nicotero, one part of KNB FX, the legendary studio behind almost all great horror make-up effects you've ever seen. He was a second unit director on Land of the Dead and Frank Darabont's The Mist and has been looking to get into directing for a while. The short premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin last month. Thanks to AMC for hosting the film, it's awesome to see it online so soon. Enjoy!
