Director: Neil Marshall
Neil Marshall is an English film maker who attended film school at Newcastle Polytechnic in Newcastle upon Tyne. He directs, writes, and edits the majority of his films. Himself a fan of 70s and 80s cinema, some of his movies have been considered direct homages to well known cult films. He’s also notable for his use of stand out female characters.
Marshall started working as a writer and editor in the late 90s. He found his niche in directing gory low budget films, and became well known for his unusual stories and equally unusual sources of violence. His work manages to be absurd and effective at the same time.
