Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Producer Michael Feifer, best known for his chilling thrillers and gruesome horror films, earned his first film credit in 1992 as an extra in the campy collegiate horror flick "Fraternity Demon." The next year he made his producing debut with the sexually charged comedy "Divorce Law." After that came a string of straight-to-video releases, many of which were gaudy B-horror movies.

It proved to be the first in a long line of directorial efforts, many of which were grisly horror films based on real-life killings. In 2007, he wrote and directed "Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield," which strives to tell the real story of the murderer who inspired such fictitious serial killers as Norman Bates from "Psycho," Buffalo Bill from "The Silence of the Lambs," and Leatherface from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." The next year he tackled the notorious Ted Bundy's life story with "Bundy: An American Icon," as well as the lesser-known tales of the "B.T.K." killer and "The Boston Strangler: The Untold Story."

Interestingly enough, after this string of dark tales, Feifer switched focus radically and produced a series of Christmas movies, including the heartwarming adventure "The Dog Who Saved Christmas" and the cheery comedy "A Nanny for Christmas." Whatever the genre, Feifer continues to prove prolific, outputting several productions each year.
