I’m a screenwriter, author and former film critic.

I have written three short films:

BRICKS (2015) stars Jason Flemyng (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS). It was described by director David Fincher (FIGHT CLUB) as “a classy take on a morbid classic”. It has played at various film festivals – including FrightFest and Fantasia – and won a Méliès d’Argent award.

 

 

LOCK IN (2016) stars Tim McInnerny (BLACKADDER). It was funded by the BFI/Creative England as part of their prestigious iShorts scheme for “the best new UK filmmakers”. It premiered at Vancouver and Aesthetica.

 

 

GHOSTED (2016) stars Alice Lowe (SIGHTSEERS, PREVENGE). It premiered at the LA Comedy Fest in Hollywood and at the London Short Film Festival in the UK.

 

 

Before I started making films, I was a Contributing Editor on Total Film magazine and wrote about movies and videogames for The Sunday Times, the Guardian, Total Film, Wired, EDGE, Sight & Sound, the BBC and many other publications.

I also wrote several books, the best known of which is BOOK OF THE DEAD: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF ZOMBIE CINEMA (Titan Publishing, 2014; first edition FAB Press, 2005).

My agent is Andrew Mills at JAB Management.
