You're So Cool Brewster The Story of Fright Night - Miguel Tejada-Flores

Miguel Tejada-Flores is a screenwriter and producer. He worked as a production assistant on the original Fright Night and co-wrote Fright Night Part 2 with Tim Metcalfe and Tommy Lee Wallace.


Miguel Tejada-Flores is a screenwriter whose first produced script, Revenge of the Nerds, became both a commercial success and a cult classic. His film writing credits range from dark epic sci-fi (Screamers) to psychological suspense (The Unsaid) to horror (Fright Night Part 2 and Beyond Re-Animator); he has created stories for the big screen and the small, including movies and series for Showtime, USA Networks and the Sci-Fi Channel.

Miguel studied literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz and at the Sorbonne in Paris, before moving across the English Channel to study filmmaking at the London Film School. He began his film career working as a Story Analyst for Paramount Pictures and later served as a senior film Production Executive for a handful of major companies, including Lorimar Motion Pictures and Herb Jaffe’s Vista Films, where he supervised the development and production of a series of innovative fantasy films, including The Last Starfighter and Fright Night – before beginning a prolific career as a screenwriter.

Miguel’s most recent screenwriting credits include Frankenstein's Army - the innovative punk-rock horror film he wrote for Richard Raaphorst - and the soon-to-be-released I Brake for Gringos, which combines insane twisted comedy, Spring Break in Mexico, and EDM dance music. Miguel served as writer/producer on the critically-acclaimed Sci-Fi Channel Network Series, ‘Welcome to Paradox’. He currently is working on multiple film and television projects in North America, Mexico, Canada and Europe. Though his home base is a 100-year-old farmhouse in rural Oregon, he is an international citizen of the global village that futurist Marshall McLuhan predicted more than half a century ago.
