Upon graduating New York's Hofstra University with a Bachelor of Science in Television and Film production, Adam Green went to work producing and directing local cable commercials in Boston. While employed by the cable advertising company, Green began "borrowing" their production equipment after hours to make his own films. Using friends as cast and crew, three lights, and his severely troubled cat...Green's first feature film (the comedy COFFEE & DONUTS) was completed for a mere $400 in the summer of 1999. The movie was ultimately bought by Walt Disney Studios/Touchstone TV and developed as a sit-com for UPN with Green writing the pilot and Tom Shadyac producing. While spending the next several years developing, writing, and working on various network television pilots, Green wrote and directed the slasher comedy HATCHET which premiered to rave reviews at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. The film was selected for festivals worldwide winning a multitude of awards, including the Audience Choice Award for "Best Picture" in 3 different countries and placement in both MTV's and Ain't It Cool News' TOP 10 FILMS OF THE YEAR lists. Critically hailed as "the greatest slasher film in 20 years," "the holy grail of slasher films," and creating "the next icon of horror," HATCHET saw a successful nationwide theatrical release in September of 2007. The film went on to become the highest selling film that its distributor (Anchor Bay Entertainment) has ever had and a sequel is now in production. Green's next film, the Hitchcockian psychodrama SPIRAL (starring AVATAR's Joel David Moore and CHUCK's Zachary Levi) took home the prestigious "Gold Vision Award" at the 2007 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the "Silver Award" at Austin's Fantastic Film Festival, and saw a US theatrical release in February of 2008 with critics hailing it as "a masterpiece" and "the closest thing to Hitchcock in our day and age." On the television side, Green wrote the MTV / American Eagle short film series It's a Mall World and wrote/directed their Winter Tales claymation series. Green also wrote and directed a new series called Fairy Tale Police for Microsoft as part of their "Horror to Comedy" Xbox series where favorite directors in the horror genre created their own comedy series for the popular video game console.Most recently, Green produced newcomer Paul Solet's horror/thriller GRACE through his own production company (ArieScope Pictures). The chilling and riveting story of a woman whose stillborn baby miraculously returns back to life had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last year, where two men reportedly fainted at the Egyptian Theater screening- a Sundance first! GRACE saw US theaters in August of 2009. It was on the set of GRACE that Green wrote FROZEN which he directed earlier in 2009 and which will see it's world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.Currently Green is in production on the highly anticipated sequel to his 2007 smash hit HATCHET. He will then direct his romantic comedy GOD ONLY KNOWS, which is being produced by Chris Columbus' 1492 Pictures.
