Writer Biography - Benjamin Owens

Benjamin's mother lovingly showed him Halloween and The Shining when he was five years old, which explains why he is now an unapologetic horror enthusiast and filmmaker. Opening his company, Lies for Truth Productions, in 2010, he has since had projects feature in festivals around the world, including Oaxaca FilmFest and Canada International Film Festival, among others. His short "I'm Gonna Eat Your Brains" won Best Editing and Best Film at Bleedingham Film Festival in 2013. When not making films, he collects VHS and manages his local video store. Benjamin considers himself both a surrealist and a realist, which means he does not actually exist.
