John McNaughton was born in Chicago in 1950.
John McNaughton obtained $100,000 to write, produce and direct his first feature, Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer. Although virtually unseen by moviegoers for three years, the picture finally surfaced at the 1989 Telluride Film Festival, garnered wide critical acclaim and ultimately attracted a cult following on the midnight screening circuit throughout the country.
Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer was cited as one of the year's ten best films by Time, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and The New York Post. The film captured Best Picture and Best Director awards at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain and six Independent Spirit Award nominations.
Subsequently, McNaughton directed The Borrower, a science fiction comedy about alien banished to earth who must borrow human heads to stay alive.
McNaughton was chosen to guide the acclaimed performance show Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll to the screen in 1991. Shot over five days and eight live performances at the Wilbur Theater in Boston, the film opened to critical praise.
Mad Dog And Glory was McNaughton's first directorial effort for a major studio. He subsequently directed Girls in Prison.
McNaughton most recently directed four episodes of NBC-TV's acclaimed Homicide.
