David Holdredge is the founder of Crow Brothers Productions.
Crow Brothers Productions is an amalgamation of family and friends who are fanatics of the horror genre. We are committed to creating films and writing screenplays that pursue the real emotion and terror associated with the realm of horror. This company attempts to help foster the passion and creativity of students and budding actors by giving them an outlet to demonstrate their talents and/or skills both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
My main influences:
I’m a lover of late 70’s and 80’s horror/slasher movies. Some of my favorite films are Halloween, Friday the 13th (I-VII), A Nightmare on Elm Street (I-III), Night of the Creeps, The Mutilator, Alien, Aliens, The Toxic Avenger, The Burning, Prince Of Darkness, Fright Night, Sleepaway Camp, The Fog, Lost Boys, The Thing, Poltergeist, Day of the Dead, and The Evil Dead (just to name a few). I’m also a huge fan of Abel Ferry’s High Lane (2009) and love the F/X work in Jake West’s Doghouse (2009).
I truly love movies that pit a group of friends out in the middle of nowhere battling an unknown malevolent force/killer. And, yes, I love running zombies–Ala Zach Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead (2004).
My favorite directors are:
John Carpenter, George A. Romero, Robert Rodriquez, Quentin Tarantino, Clint Eastwood, and Lloyd Kaufman. I adore John Carpenter above all others because he has crafted so many of the films that I cherish and continually watch with great nostalgia.
My favorite movies from all genres:
Halloween (1978), Alien, Aliens, Jaws, The Fog (1980), From Dusk Till Dawn, Mystic River, Die Hard, Back To The Future, Tombstone, Point Break, and Halloween H2O. These can change almost daily (except for the Carpenter titles).
