Biography

Openly gay 'Generation X' filmmaker Andrew Fleming acquired a reputation as a wunderkind shortly after leaving New York University's prestigious film school. The last of his three award-winning student films there, "P.P.T.," earned him a fellowship at Warner Bros., and he teamed with no less a producer than Gale Ann Hurd ("Terminator" 1984; "Aliens" 1986) for his feature directing and writing debut "Bad Dreams" (1988), a largely ignored psychological horror film. Although some found it stylish in a sort of David Cronenbergian way, many questioned Hurd's involvement in an "entertainment" so clearly celebrating doom and utterly devoid of hope, aimed shamelessly at the teen market.

Bonus Trivia

.

About "The Craft" (1996): "It just seemed like a nice, new way to offend people. I didn't really know anything about witchcraft when we started, but we had a witch technical consultant, and I learned. It's really in no way more preverse than Catholicism is, and makes as much or more sense because it's grounded in worshipping the earth. It has a lot more to do with day-to-day life than nailing somebody to the cross, to be perfectly honest." - Fleming quoted in Out Magazine, March 1996
