David Bond – Dark Elegy Pictures, Producer
I’m an award-winning genre film writer and producer. I’m also a member of CMPA, PGA (pending), Producers Network at Cannes and the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.
My career began with COOKERS and AMERICAN CRIME for Lionsgate Films. Since then, I’ve had many successful films, such as EXTREMITY for Dark Elegy Films, available on Shudder, and released by Sony in Germany. I oversaw the 1980s horror reboot hit, THE BOOGEYMAN as a producer and writer.
I’ve executive produced the 70s-style arthouse horror film ANTRUM: The Deadliest Film Ever Made. In the spring of 2020, ANTRUM became the number one film on Amazon Prime. It will have a Theatrical Release in JAPAN on February 9th and the UK on October 26th, and it already appears on three Top 10 lists. Also, in the spring of 2020, ANTRUM went viral globally by reaching over 200k on BuzzFeed and having over 70 million watches on TikTok videos.
My film, BLOODTHIRSTY for Voice Pictures, was part of the Frontieres Buyers Showcase at Cannes 2020. In the fall of 2020, I sold BLOODTHIRSTY to XYZ, and it was the closing night film for Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. I’m also an executive producer for THE BLACKSTONE and CREEPYPASTA in 2020. I have screened my films in over fifty major film festivals worldwide, including Sitges, Brussels, and Bucheon and have sold my films in 30 countries.
i’ve had development deals with both Stephen King’s and Clive Barker’s production companies thru projects with Anthony Diblasi and was the first indie horror film, sub 50K to be feature in Forbes Magazine.
For 2021, I’m co-producing through Gynormous Pictures’, Michelle Gomez’s, NOT FROM AROUND HERE, with Fantastic Films of Ireland, and Michelle Cervera’s, HUESERA, in Mexico City, with Edher Campo. Plus, I’m producing and writing, DARK WOODS, LAKE HOUSE, and producing 3RD FLOOR.
Besides my film projects, I co-wrote the book, VHS Nasty: The History of Banned Films, through Hellbound Books. I contributed to articles for Fangoria, Fear, and GoreZone magazines. I worked as a film curator for Phil Anselmo’s, Housecore Horror Film Festival, and directed a music video for the legendary, Norwegian black metal band, Mayhem.
