Born during a particularly close game of Scrabble between his parents in 1974, Pat Higgins spent his early life roaming the streets of Essex busily imagining that vampires and werewolves lay around every corner.
In 2003, Pat set up Jinx Media Ltd and directed his first film, TrashHouse. It was released on DVD in February 2006 and received positive reviews in many UK magazines, including Empire.
Pat wrote and directed two follow-ups, KillerKiller and Hellbride, before branching out with award-winning mockumentary The Devil’s Music. Pat was the original writer and creator of international cinema release Strippers vs Werewolves, although he’s surely apologised for that enough times by now. He’s been called the ‘Essex Auteur’ in Empire and ‘the Tarantino of budget gore flicks for style and dialogue’ in SFX.
He is the co-creator of the Death Tales series of films, (Bordello Death Tales, Nazi Zombie Death Tales) with Jim Eaves and Al Ronald. He also blogs for Huffington Post and has just finished work on his latest screenplay, Your Lying Eyes.
Pat has seen the movie Gremlins more than 80 times.
