Mini Bio (1)
Like his films, director/writer Ryan M. Andrews has crept up on the Canadian horror scene. Having attended both Niagara College and Trebas Institute in Toronto, for film production, Andrews graduated at the top of his class and has spent the past 14 years honing in on his craft. A fan of all things macabre, Andrews lives his life like every day is Halloween and as a storyteller, he feels what is most important is the need to respect the genre and the fans.
Living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Andrews' films, both features and shorts, have played around the world and have received dozens of nominations and awards. His third feature, Black Eve (released 2013), while an homage to early 80's slasher films, has an art house feel to the structure of story showing a disjointed timeline that fits together the horrific events of a Halloween party gone bad after an uninvited guest shows up and starts killing people off one by one.
Andrews followed up Black Eve with his dramatic zombie film Sick (release January 6th 2015). With countless zombie films being made every year, Andrews decided to focus on an aspect of the zombie apocalypse rarely ever seen in horror films. Sick examines the bleak loneliness of surviving day to day in such a horrific world. But while the film encompasses an overwhelming sadness as it studies humanity and human interaction, it never skimps on the horror.
In 2014, Andrews went to camera on two more horror features. Save Yourself and Desolation. His films are always different in subject matter, but one thing Andrews' promises about his horror is that they will always be artful in their approach.
