Director Biography - Dylan Altieri Ruebenstahl

From editing several of my own horror and absurd-comedy films, I've realized that the two genres are one and the same; a build or set-up to, respectively, a scare or a joke.

I enjoy blending these genres; messing with and mixing their distinctive patterns; creepily building towards a joke and/or gently setting-up something disturbed.

Watch my newest film 'SOUP!' to see what I mean.

I'm a product of Adult Swim comedians and 80s horror.

One day... I'm gonna make an amazing movie, make some money, and then spend that money on as many squirrels as it can buy.
