Steve Carpenter biography
Texas-born Carpenter ventured off to Los Angeles to attend UCLA Film School
in the mid-'80s. When he graduated, he wrote and directed his first film,
The Dorm That Dripped Blood. The low-budget shocker became a cult
Following his first success, he continued to work in the horror
genre and wrote and directed The Kindred and The Power, both
of which were equally successful as his first.
Carpenter then took a step in a different direction and wrote the big budget
film, Blue Streak (1999), a comedy/action film directed by Les Mayfield
and starring Martin Lawrence.
At the turn of the century, he took back the
director's chair to make his big-budget directing debut with the
horror/thriller Soul Survivors (2001). His next script, Ocean's
Eleven, was also released, featuring an all-star cast.
