Hailing from London, Anthony Hickox started out as a club promoter, but found himself writing and directing his first feature film after arriving in Los Angles in the late 80’s. It is said that Tony met producer Staffan Ahrenberg after crashing into his car. Tony talked Staffan into accepting a script as payment for the damage and Waxwork was born three days later. Eventually, the film found it’s way to a studio and it is now credited as one of the first self referential horror films. Hickox would then go on to make Waxwork II: Lost in Time, Warlock: Armageddon, and Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth just to name a few.
