Neil Marshall (@neilmarshall_director) is an Emmy-nominated director, writer, editor and producer, known for cult films such as The Descent and his work on hit shows like Game of Thrones. Marshall supported himself for eight years as a freelance editor before hitting his stride with two films: Dog Soldiers and The Descent, which put him on the map as a top-notch horror director who blends hyper-stylized violence with thematic complexity. After his success with the latter, Marshall was listed on Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch and described as “the most exciting genre filmmaker to arrive on the British scene for many years.”
