Jacob Gentry got started in the picture business at age  26 when he wrote and directed the sprawling character  mosaic Last Goodbye starring Academy Award winner  Faye Dunaway and the late screen legend David  Carradine. The film was praised for it’s editing and  innovative narrative style with Variety comparing it to  the works of P.T. Anderson and David Lynch. Gentry  then co-wrote/produced/directed the Sundance smash  The Signal, a $50,000 scifi/horror apocalypse tale that  was bought by Magnolia Pictures in a late-night  bidding war for $2.3 million. Aint It Cool News said  The Signal was “Quite easily the best independently  made horror film in the last five years.” The Signal was  nominated for The John Cassavetes award at the 2009 Spirit Awards. Jacob then scored another genre success with My Super Psycho Sweet 16. Made exclusively for MTV, this teen slasher movie satire was part John Hughes, part John Carpenter, and gave MTV its best ratings in the time slot in over a year and half. He followed it up in 2010 with the equally successful sequel Super Psycho Part 2 and The Ghost Inside clip for Broken Bells starring Christina Hendricks. The Sci-fi mini film was nominated for a MTV Video Music Award. This year, Gentry has delighted Super Psycho fans everywhere with the conclusion of the trilogy: My Super Psycho Sweet 16 Part 3, and is currently in post production on the mind-bending time travel  thriller, Synchronicity.
