Jeff Buhler

Jeff Buhler has been an movie fanatic since childhood.  After making a series of ultra-gory super-8 horror films in high school, Jeff went on to study Film and Theater Arts at UC Santa Cruz.

During the late 90’s, Jeff worked in various facets of the film industry from development through post production and even found himself acting for theater companies including The Actor’s Gang and the Evidence Room.  He is an alumni of Second City and has appeared in many independent films.

Jeff’s big break as a screenwriter came when he sold an original idea to Working Title Films in 2000.  His work on that script led to an assignment re-writing the horror spec “Cave” for Working Title Films.

After pitching a feature version of the Clive Barker short story “The Midnight Meat Train”, Jeff landed the writing honors and worked closely with Barker bringing the adaptation of his classic short story to life under the direction of famed Japanese director, Ryuhei Kitamura..  The film was released theatrically in August of 2008 by Lion’s Gate Films.

Jeff made his feature directing debut for Sony Pictures from his original script “Insanitarium.”  The project follows a man who commits himself to an asylum to save his sister only to find the methods employed in the hospital are less than orthodox.  The film was released through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in July 2008.
