Tom Savini On Nickelodeon’s Livewire (1982)


Do you remember Nickelodeon’s evening talk show called Livewire? It was hosted by voice and sound effects artist, Fred Newman back in the early 80s. Thanks to Halloweenguy 1031’s YouTube Channel we can see him interview the legendary master of gore as well as creature effects, Tom Savini.

I love this piece of video history. Not only is Savini talking about Creepshow but he mentions that they are going to do a remake of the Thing. So…was Savini up for the effects on the Thing or was it always Rob Bottin?
