Timothy Woodward Jr. was born too late. Clearly, the kind of enterprise that enabled this actor-turned-director to make no less than 13 features in the last five years for his own production company would’ve been ideally deployed in a “golden age” Poverty Row studio. [11]

In 2018 Woodward, "who until (then) ha(d) primarily worked in the action and Western genres" directed his first horror film, The Final Wish. [12] He made another horror film in 2020, The Call [13] , and in 2023, Til Death Do Us Part, a thriller [14] and Woodward's third collaboration with Jeffrey Reddick. [15]
