October 29, 2010 09:00 AM by Candace Young


Coming up on Sunday night, Extreme Makeover Home Edition will visit the Oregon School for the Deaf for the Halloween episode.  It’s a fitting occasion for this build because they will be making over the school’s Nightmare Factory! Rob Zombie and Marlee Matlin will both make appearances on this episode. Read on for more details…

On Sunday, October 31st, the Halloween edition of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition will involve a visit to the Oregon School for the Deaf, the Starkey Foundation, and will include appearances by deaf actress Marlee Matlin, and scary rocker Rob Zombie! The design team will be making over the unsafe 12,000 square foot basement of the school which contains the Nightmare Factory – a haunted house that helps to generate much-needed funds for the financially strapped school.

Ty Pennington will be joined by Paige Hemmis, John Littlefield, Michael Moloney on this episode. They actually warned the crowd that things might get a little scary, but everyone from students to parents to staff were enthusiastic and greeted the team with the American Sign Language motion for applause. Assistance with the Nightmare Factory design will come from horror film director/heavy metal musician Rob Zombie.  Watch for Rob to show up on the scene in a ghoulishly made up vehicle. Volunteers will be wearing the usual blue shirts, but will be made to look like zombies,  and the design team will get into the Halloween spirit by dressing up as characters from Frankenstein. Rich Duncan Construction are the builders for this episode.

During the build, over 100 students will be offered an opportunity to visit the Starkey Hearing Foundation to be fitted with new hearing aids and have fun. They will also get to spend some time with award-winning actress Marlee Matlin while at the facility.
