Johnny Kevorkian
After making a number of ambitious shorts, Johnny directed, co-wrote and co-produced his debut feature, THE DISAPPEARED, a psychological horror thriller set on a London council estate, starring Harry Treadaway, Tom Felton, Greg Wise and Alex Jennings.

The Disappeared was released theatrically in the UK by Soda Pictures, attracting awards and critical acclaim: ‘Kevorkian has mobilised a top-notch cast and his story delivers more than a few shivers’ (The Guardian); ‘Johnny Kevorkian ratchets up the tension and successfully outcreeps M. Night Shyamalan’ (Evening Standard). IFC Films handled North America and also sold to numerous other territories . The Disappeared has also screened several times on Film4 in the UK.

Johnny is on the short list of ‘go-to’ British horror directors, and is developing several projects with companies including Shudder Films, Dan Films, and Scanner Rhodes Productions.
