Johnny Terris

Before creating Terfer Productions in 2004, filmmaker Johnny Terris started out doing gritty and extreme underground film in Canada in the late 80s and early 90s.

After putting filmmaking on hiatus for some 10 years, he has once again rejoined the film industry as both filmmaker and actor, delivering some of his most brutal work to date.

Heavily influenced by and often described as an underground Dario Argento by peers concerning his cinematic imagery, his films are reminiscent of the no wave punk driven Cinema of Transgression movement of the mid-80s, usually combined with a rock and roll or heavy metal soundtrack and an extreme anti-Hollywood/anti-mainstream message.

As well as starring in the films from Terfer Productions, this summer he will be starring in the feature film Silent Alarm directed by award winning cinematographer/director, Steve Ashlee and in the Jimmy O Burril sequel "" alongside gore legend Herschell Gordon Lewis and the original cast of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre".

In mid 2007 he will be producing and directing a full length documentary on New Wave of British Heavy Metal legends Girlschool.

Trivia

Is of Italian and Dutch ancestry.

Was a professional male model for the majority of his 20's.

Studied martial arts and dance in Maui, Hawaii.

Was once asked to double for actor Johnny Depp who he is often compared to in appearance.

The horror film Inside Inoxia was a film 3 years in the making because Terris wanted the realism of the characters age and appearance within a three year span.

His work tends to be more experimental film with no elaborate plot or structure, relying on graphic images and violent music.
