Steve Carpenter

Steve Carpenter (writer-director) attended the famed UCLA Film School before beginning an association with renowned filmmaker Roger Corman. While still attending film school, the Kansas City native wrote- and- directed his first feature, The Dorm That Dripped Blood, a serial killer thriller that became a bonafide cult classic, and one to which scribe Kevin Williamson paid homage in his hit film, Scream 2.

Carpenter next cowrote- and- directed another genre classic, The Kindred, starring Oscar winners Rod Steiger and Kim Hunter in a story depicting the horrifying results of gene experimentation.

Over the past decade, Carpenter has turned his talents to screenwriting, and most recently wrote the hit comedy Blue Streak for producer Neal Moritz, with whom he reunites here.
