Gordon followed Re-Animator in 1996, with another HP Lovecraft adaptation, From Beyond, solidifying his notoriety in the horror genre. His subsequent directing credits include Dolls (1986), Robot Jox (1990), The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) starring Lance Hendrickson, Fortress (1993) starring Christopher Lambert, Castle Freak (1995) and Space Truckers (1997) starring Dennis Hopper and Stephen Dorff. In 1998 he directed Ray Bradbury's The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and winning the award for Best Direction at the Fantafestival.
Gordon's writing credits are equally as impressive. In 1989 he and frequent collaborator Brian Yuzna wrote Disney's blockbuster, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Gordon then served as executive producer for the sequel, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid.
Gordon's latest work, Dagon, returns to HP Lovecraft with an adaptation of The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Shot on location in Spain, it is the eerie and chilling tale of shipwrecked vacationers held hostage in a village of monstrous mutated sea- creatures.
