Biography

An amateur filmmaker while still a child, Mora began making narration-less documentaries in London in the late '60s and early '70s: Trouble in Molopolis, The Double-Headed Eagle, Swastika. After making the Canadian/American co-production Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?, a documentary of the Depression, Mora went to Australia and wrote and directed his first feature, the violent outlaw drama Mad Dog Morgan starring Dennis Hopper. His recent films include the horror tales The Beast Within, Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf, and Howling III: The Marsupials, and Communion, adapted from Whitley Streiber's memoir about his abduction by aliens. ~ Rovi
