Carrie Wachob loves dark comedy and horror, and prides herself on writing wicked female underdogs who straighten out their own shit (eventually). Carrie's scripts and short films have been recognized by numerous festivals including Cinequest, Sidewalk, and Catalina, and her dark short story "Goodnight Krissy” was recently published in the British sci-fi anthology The Singularity. Her short film "Crazy Cat Lady,” which she wrote and co-directed, won the international Create50 filmmaking competition (UK), and will be included as a scene in the upcoming feature film THE IMPACT, written by Joe Eszterhas ("Fatal Attraction," "Basic Instinct”), and starring Olivia Williams ("Hanna," "Maps to the Stars").
Her projects in development include: a dark comedy series with producer Wendy Kram of WK Productions ("Mad Money" "Sally Hemmings: An American Scandal"), and a feature horror script with Mind Riot Entertainment ("Give Me Shelter”).
Most of her work leans toward the dark and weird, probably influenced by her extensive shooting & editing of surgical footage as multimedia coordinator for Seattle Children's Hospital. She studied digital video at the Art Institute of Seattle, and attended the same university as Ted Bundy (UW), where she earned a journalism degree. When she's not writing, directing, or editing gory surgical footage, she’s
a proud momma to four beloved rescue dogs.
