The Mad Times of Charles Band
Charles Band has directed more than forty films, and through Full Moon Features, he has produced and distributed 100s more - but is his latest one the lowest of the low?
Talent surrounds Charles Band. His grandfather, Max Band, was an accomplished artist and author of 1935 book the History of Contemporary Art. His father was a director and producer in Hollywood before teaming up with his son on various projects, and his son is a talented (some might say) musician, and was the lead singer for chart topping band The Calling.
But talent isn’t always the first thing people think of when discussing the director of Evil Bong, The Gingerdead Man, Dollman vs Demonic Toys and Oooga Booga. Charles Band has racked up a heady list of over 40 director credits and under various incarnations of his production company, Full Moon Features, he has produced and distributed hundreds of films.
