Mini Bio (1)

Writer/Director/Producer known for a wide variety of modern horror films, most significantly cult favorite 2001 Maniacs (2005) and its popular follow-up, 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams (2010). 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 The Last Movie Star (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.

Trade Mark (1)

Crossed Arrow Tattoo on upper right arm

Trivia (2)

Tim's trademark tattoo, the crossed arrows representing the Native American symbol for friendship, makes a cameo in every one of his directorial efforts. In 2001 Maniacs (2005), it is on the upper arm of Ricky (Brian Gross); In Driftwood (2006), it is the character of Dean (Russell Sams) who bears the mark; In 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams (2010), it is on the upper arm of Falcon (Trevor Wright). In Chillerama (2011), it is on Sullivan himself in the role of Coach Tuffman.
His name and picture can be seen on a "Wanted Poster" in the police station scene of Jeepers Creepers (2001). The film's storyboard artist, Brad Parker, is a friend of Tim's and was responsible for this much sighted cameo.
