Author Ted Geoghegan

Author Ted Geoghegan was born in Beaverton, Oregon on August 10, 1979. He grew up in Great Falls, Montana, attending private and public schools, studying film extensively. In the mid-90s, he attended The University of Montana in Missoula, Montana and attained a degree in English Education. He is best-known for his works in the horror and science-fiction film genres.

Early experiences

In 1996, Ted was approached to star in a short film, entitled Latter-Day Saints. In the picture, he portrayed a deranged high school student who had been banished from society and tried to form his own religious cult. The feature was a modest success for filmmaker Jeff Goad and left Geoghegan with the desire to continue working in the arts.

In 1997, artist Richard Anderson contacted Ted and persuaded him to assist in the writing of a new fantasy-themed graphic novel, entitled The Isle of Insaw. It debuted at the prestigious San Diego Comic-Con that same year. While attending the event, Ted had the opportunity to meet filmmaker Kevin Smith. Their conversations inspired him to pursue screenwriting, which would combine his two passions - writing and film.


Ted authored Demonium, his first major motion picture, in the year 2000. Directed by German horror master Andreas Schnaas and co-authored by his wife, the film was shot in Rome, Italy on a substantial budget. Geoghegan worked on the set of the film as a dialogue coach, primarily focusing on the cast, who spoke English as a second language.

While in Europe for the filming of Demonium, Ted was asked to appear in a German science fiction film. Spending three days on-set, Geoghegan portrayed an obnoxious American actor who meets a grisly end in Timo Rose’s Mutation II: Generation Dead.

Following that, he was approached by indie filmmaker Kevin Lindenmuth to write a short werewolf-themed picture, which became part of the anthology film, Bites: The Werewolf Chronicles. In 2003, he teamed up with Schnaas once more for the New York-set slasher film, Nikos.

Geoghegan wrote and directed the short film Ghouls Gone Wild! in 2004, which received a successful DVD release. The musical/comedy/horror marked his directorial debut.
