Beginning his career as a New Jersey teenager pumping fake blood for 80's splatter classic The Deadly Spawn (1983), Sullivan moved to Los Angeles where he worked in development at New Line Cinema, co-producing Detroit Rock City (1999).
With a directing style ranging from the 'splatstick' nature of the Maniacs franchise to the serious bent of teen thriller Driftwood (2006), Sullivan gained additional notoriety as celebrity director of Vh1's hit series Scream Queens (2008), as well as creator and host of "Shock N Roll", his weekly talk and video blog on leading web network Fearnet.
Re-joining forces with Detroit Rock City (1999) director Adam Rifkin for the comedy/horror anthology Chillerama (2011), Sullivan contributed the musical segment I Was a Teenage Werebear (2011), followed by the Burt Reynolds starring vehicle Dog Years (2017), on which Sullivan earned an Associate Producer credit.
Up next, the rock and roll vampire show "Night Songs" and documentary series Untold Horror (2017), both produced through Sullivan's production entity, New Rebellion Entertainment.
