TOM HOLLAND - DIRECTOR
Tom Holland is an American director and screenwriter of horror and thriller films. His early writing projects include Class of 1984 and the Robert Bloch- inspired Psycho II, the latter starring Anthony Perkins as the menacing psychopath, Norman Bates.
Tom gained more notoriety, however, as a director. His directorial debut was the popular 1980s Vampire film, Fright Night which, at the time, was said to have been responsible for redefining the sub-genre, influencing later films like The Lost Boys and Near Dark. The film was a box office hit and garnered three Saturn Awards and one Dario Argento Award.
For his next project, Child's Play, Tom again cast Chris Sarandon. The film was a Number One box-office hit in America and a worldwide success, despite controversy over its thematic content. It, like Fright Night has since gathered a cult following amongst horror fans. Tom then went onto direct two films based upon adaptations of Stephen King's novels: The Langoliers and Thinner. He also took a cameo role in the Stephen King miniseries The Stand.
Tom's other projects have included _The Incredible Hulk_ episode 'Another Path', Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, three episodes of Tales from the Crypt, and the prestigious Masters of Horror anthology. He starred in A Walk in the Spring Rain with Ingrid Bergman.
In 2009 Tom took a starring role in Hatchet II alongside Kane Hodder and Tony Todd.

Since her best documentary win at The Hamptons Film Festival, she has written her first screenplay and is working to build a topnotch team to bring the script to the screen and to life. While she has other projects completed and in the works, making this feature film is a most important goal in her life.
