Adam Green is a screenwriter, director, producer, and actor who created and stars in the television sit-com "Holliston.” He is best known for his work within the horror genre with such films as the "Hatchet" franchise, "Frozen," and "Spiral."
Adam was raised in the small town of Holliston, Massachusetts and wrote, directed, and starred in his first feature film “Coffee & Donuts” when he was 24 years old while working for a low budget cable advertising company in Boston. The autobiographical comedy was made by “borrowing” the cable company’s equipment after hours and provided his break into Hollywood, eventually being re-developed as the hit sit-com “Holliston.”
Adam gained worldwide recognition with his 2006 independent slasher comedy "Hatchet", which introduced a new iconic villain in the genre (“Victor Crowley”) and went on to spawn two successful sequels. He diversified and continued his legacy with award winning films such as the Hitchcockian psycho-drama “Spiral", the suspense driven Sundance darling and global hit “Frozen”, and the horror/comedy drive-in anthology “Chillerama."
A celebrated leader and inspirational personality in the horror genre, Adam made international headlines in 2010 when he stood up to the Motion Picture Association of America’s arbitrary ratings system and refused to accept their NC-17 rating for “Hatchet 2”, releasing the film in mainstream cinema multiplexes un-rated. The unprecedented move created controversy as the film was mysteriously pulled from all screens within 48 hours of its release.
Adam's next film "Digging Up The Marrow" is set to be released in early 2015. He is currently in development on the third season of "Holliston" and numerous other feature film projects.
