About

Mark has been working as a writer since 2005 when he started as a columnist for OCWeekly. It was this that landed him the position of assistant editor on the novel Abarat: Absolute Midnight by Clive Barker, for which he also directed the Promotional Trailer For the same author, he subsequently edited the New York Times best belling book The Scarlet Gospels

In 2009, Miller began shepherding the release of the director's cut of the 90's cult horror film Nightbreed. After 6 years of Miller's campaigning, tracking down the footage, and assembling a film closer to the director's original vision, he produced a 120 minute Director's Cut which was released on Blu-Ray by Scream Factory. The film since has won best vintage release at the 41st annual Saturn Awards (where Mark accepted the award in person). This release garnered worldwide interest, and was featured in publications such as Entertainment Weekly, Fangoria,and Empire magazine, and was named Total Film's 14th best extended cut of all time. In 2018, Mark oversaw the Blu-Ray release of an extended 140 minute version called Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut

Mark's work as a producer is not limited to horror, however, and in early 2014 he produced a series of animated shorts with the comedy troupe Superego for Nerdist Channel. He can also be heard on various Nerdist channel podcasts, including The Nerdist, Bizarre States, The Dork Forest, The Nerdist Writers Panel, and The Todd Glass Show.

His comic writing can be seen in the bestselling Boom! Studios comic books, Hellraiser, Hellraiser: Bestiary, and the critically acclaimed Next Testament, as well as Seraphim Comics' Hellraiser: Anthology Vol 1 & 2, and The Steam Man of the Prairie and the Dark Rider Get Down released by Dark Horse from a story by Joe R. Lansdale. He has released two books, Next Testament published by Earthling, and Hellraiser: The Toll due to be published by Subterranean Press in Spring 2018. Mark has recently directed a Blood Drive PSA for Women in Horror Month 9, called The Coming Dawn Ministry, which shall be released in February.
