His career took a thrilling turn when he wrote and produced several genre film retrospectives for television and home entertainment: SCREAM: THE INSIDE STORY, NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY (winner of the Saturn Award for Best Direct-to-Video Title), MORE BRAINS! A RETURN TO THE LIVING DEAD and HIS NAME WAS JASON: 30 YEARS OF FRIDAY THE 13th.
He was also a staff writer on Hulu’s daily web series “The Morning After,” a smart, witty, pop culture program aimed at getting viewers quickly up-to-date on the latest and greatest in entertainment news and celebrity interviews.
Thommy produced the critically-acclaimed feature THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH (which Roger Ebert awarded 3.5 out of 4 stars), an insightful relationship drama starring Lea Thompson and John Shea. He also produced DREAMWORLD, a quirky, romantic dramedy.
He co-wrote and produced ANIMAL, a character-driven genre film for Chiller Films and Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films. The project debuted in iTunes’ top ten horror films and became the network’s highest-rated original film.
He also produced the critically-acclaimed genre retrospective CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13th, which is the most comprehensive, all-encompassing look at the film franchise, based on the acclaimed book of the same name. The project garnered two Home Media Magazine Awards: Best Direct to Video Release and Best Non-Fiction Special as well as a Reaper Award for Best Direct-to-Video Title.
Thommy released a limited-edition, hardcover coffee table book detailing the making and legacy of the wildly successful 1984 Wes Craven classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. The trade paperback version is distributed by Simon & Schuster.
