E.L. Katz




E.L. Katz got his start in the industry working as a horror/music journalist for While You Were Sleeping, Fangoria, Creature-Corner, and Life Sucks Die.

After graduating Full Sail Film School in Orlando, he collaborated with acclaimed director Adam Wingard on several features as a screenwriter/producer, including "Home Sick", which was cited by Fangoria Magazine as being "A gorefest that does what so many recent low budget shockers only claim to do.", and "Pop Skull", a psychological ghost story which garnered great reviews from Variety, Twitch, and Bloody-Disgusting.

His directorial debut "Cheap Thrills", starring Pat Healy, Sara Paxton, David Koechner, and Ethan Embry, premiered at SXSW where it won the Midnighter Audience award.
