Jim O'Rear has been involved in the entertainment industry for over thirty years, beginning his career on tour as The Youngest Professional Magician and quickly transitioning into the world of film and television. Trained in New York at The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts, Jim has worked steadily as an actor, stuntman, and special make-up effects artist on such projects as Star Trek 4, Stephen King's The Boogeyman, ABC's Nashville, Lethal Weapon 3, NBC's Fatal Encounters, The Dead Matter, Fall Of The House Of Usher, A Christmas Carol, Mortal Kombat: Conquest, and many more. Wanting to get some of his own ideas onto the screen, Jim successfully moved into the area of screenwriting, selling a number of horror-related screenplays, including The House Of Pain, Hayride Slaughter, Vampyre Tales, Wolfsbayne, The Deepening, and Scream Farm. Jim's writing also includes several novels and paranormal books including "Tennessee Ghosts," "Mortuary Of Madness," "Hollywood Paranormal Films," "Traveling In Tennessee," and the how-to autobiography "Magic, Monsters, And Me." Jim continues to work on several films per year, recently completing the critically-acclaimed and award-winning films The Hospital and Camp Massacre and the sequel to the 1973 horror classic Don't Look In The Basement 2.
