Anthony Hickox

Director and Screenwriter

Anthony is credited for various signature techniques such as using a dual-focus method in which one person’s face takes up a large part of the screen in profile, while another character is shown in the background. His movies are suspenseful and he is frequently using non-chronological scene sequencing, that engages the audience from the very beginning, letting them wonder what had lead to an already viewed outcome.

Anthony Hickox’s  most famed works include Waxwork, its sequel Waxwork II: Lost in Time, Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat, Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, “Prince Valiant”, “Children of the Corn”, “Warlock: Armageddon”, “Payback”, “Carnival of Souls” , “Knife Edge” and his most recent movie Exodus to Shanghai (2015) which was been officially chosen for Berlin, Shanghai, New York and Moscow film festivals, with Premieres taking place in LA, London, Vienna (…)
