Biography

USA
Writer, director and make-up effects artist Alan Ormsby was born on December 14, 1943. He was a drama student at the University of Florida. He met director Bob Clark while attending college. The pair first collaborated on the amusing tongue-in-cheek low-budget zombie horror hoot Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (1973). Ormsby not only co-wrote the script and did the effectively ghoulish zombie make-up, but also gave a deliciously hammy performance as arrogant and obnoxious theater group leader Alan. Ormsby's then-wife Anya portrays another group member; the couple later divorced in 1981. Read more...
