(Director) is an accomplished actor, writer, producer and director
who cut his teeth on the horror genre under Roger Corman. Striking
a balance between horror and comedy is nothing new to Flender,
whose days as a Harvard undergrad were spent making atypical student
films such as "Bloody Mutilators," an animated film
featuring rats eating supermodels which Interview lauded as "savagely
satiric." Flender sent the film to iconoclast Corman, who
made the young Harvard grad vice president of worldwide marketing
and distribution, and eventually vp of production.
Within two years Flender produced a remarkable 23 movies and
began to offer his services as a writer, editor and short-order
director. His feature directing debut came with the sci-fi thriller
"The Unborn." After writing and directing another Corman
project, "In the Heat of Passion," Flender was recruited
by Trimark pictures to helm the horror-fantasy "Leprechaun
Flender eventually bridged into television, where he has developed
a reputation as a director of substance, bringing his talents
to such series as "Tales From the Crypt," "Chicago
Hope," "Party of Five," "Dawson's Creek"
Flender's upcoming projects include a documentary about a local
Boston rock group.
