inmate profile: Keith Allan

Another week, another Asylum release; keeping up with this stuff is turning in a full-time job. With 3 Musketeers only a week on DVD and Zombie Apocalypse less than 48 hours in the past, this Tuesday sees the release of the studio's apocalyptic thriller 11/11/11, which I've already seen and posted my notes on (scroll down a teeny bit), and while I don't have time to go into everyone that worked on this fine film, I thought a profile of writer/director/actor Keith Allan was in order, so here you go:

While there isn't a ton of biographical info on Mr. Allan on IMDB - actually none - his resume speaks for itself. Allan started his Hollywood career acting, landing his first role in 2000's excellent Meat Loaf biopic, To Hell and Back, in which he played Tim Curry. As in Tim Curry. From there Mr. Allan had roles in various notable TV series like "Will & Grace," "Charmed," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "CSI," "Star Trek: Enterprise" and "Scrubs," among many others. 

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Mr. Allan has a pretty extensive resume on the other side of filmmaking as well, most notably in visual effects, where he provided(?) opticals on such films as Amityville: Dollhouse, Prozac Nation, The Prophecy and Full Tilt Boogie. 11/11/11 marks his debut as both a feature writer and director. His only other stint as either came with the 2008 short Billy and Sally Go Bionic. But as I've mentioned, the dude has chops.

The film lands on DVD tomorrow, so set your alarm accordingly.
