Ben Ketai

Ben Ketai was lucky enough to begin his film career under the tutelage of visionary director Sam Raimi. After writing, directing, and producing six different digital series for Raimi’s horror shingle, Ghost House Pictures, Ketai expanded his horizons into features. He co-wrote and then went on to direct 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS (2010) for Sony/Stage 6. Shortly thereafter, he wrote and directed the award winning thriller series CHOSEN, which he also co-created with producing partner Ryan Lewis. Critical acclaim and a rapidly growing fan base catapulted the series to become Sony Crackle’s number one scripted drama and garnered a recently announced fourth season. In the interim, Ketai has been writing for various studios and producers including the upcoming David Goyer project, THE FOREST, which will be released by Focus Features in 2016. He also recently directed the Revolver Pictures psychological horror film, BENEATH, which was released in June as the number one horror film on iTunes and earned a theatrical nod from IFC Midnight.
