With regard to their hiring of Inglee, Wood and Noah stated, “Our long-term plan for the company has always been to level up the scope and scale of what we do. When we asked ourselves who we would trust to join us in taking that step, it was no contest. Lawrence has been behind some of our favorite films of the past decade. And most importantly, we’re friends, creatively, philosophically and spiritually aligned. We can’t wait to talk about all the amazing things we’re working on!”

Said Inglee, “SpectreVision is something rare in Hollywood—a true brand that is recognizable both in and outside of the industry. We want to work for something larger than ourselves, to continue building the company as a home for creative work that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible. If we’re doing it right, the movies we make should be similar only in their uniqueness, and that uniqueness should be definable with just one word: SpectreVision.”

Celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, SpectreVision will continue to stay true to its roots and focus on elevated filmmaker-driven projects with unique visions, but will now be applying that ethos to a broader spectrum of genres and budgets. In addition to servicing a robust film and television slate, the company recently launched Mutant, a new art and collectibles venture, partnering with former co-founders of the beloved pop culture collectibles company Mondo. Prior to that, they announced High Strangeness, a “pop-up” publishing imprint in collaboration with award-winning comic book publisher, Oni Press, which debuts in 2025.

Amid this period of growth for the company, and in support of varied business ventures, SpectreVision has taken on substantial new backing from writer-producer and Talon Entertainment Finance CEO Steven Demmler (Oh, Canada) and entrepreneur Michael Risley (The Last Repair Shop). SpectreVision and Demmler, who were introduced through CAA, both recently came on as founding partners of Mutant, which led the way to a deeper partnership. Demmler and Risley are also joining the company as strategic advisors and members of the board of directors.

Risley called SpectreVision “the closest thing to a modern Group Theatre, where all the partners wear different hats as needed” — “the kind of creative family you only dream of.”

Added Demmler, “Partnering with Elijah, Daniel and Lawrence is a dream come true and the natural progression of my desire to empower creatives to realize their visions in an economically sustainable manner. The SpectreVision team has, for years, demonstrated incredible taste, persistence, and commitment to the creative vision of all their projects. I am thrilled to play a role alongside them as they continue to expand and create.”

Founded in 2010, SpectreVision is known for producing such boundary-pushing, festival-favorite genre films as Mandy, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Greasy Strangler, among others. Most recently wrapping production on Rabbit Trap, a horror film starring Dev Patel, the company is currently developing a drama series reboot of the sci-fi satire Max Headroom for AMC Networks. Also active in the gaming space, the company’s credits there include the psychological thriller adventure VR game Transference for Ubisoft, which garnered nominations at the D.I.C.E. and Golden Joystick Awards.

SpectreVision is repped by CAA.
