was spawned in Mt. Olive, IL. It's been a hard road filled with potholes and detours. Eric started
out shooting on Super-8 and VHS-C, making his first feature entitled ATTACK OF THE BATHROOM CREATURE at a
mere 17 years old. Eric amassed a collection of thousands of films, watching everything from Roger Corman b-movies
and Adam Sandler comedies to 80's Italian action films and blockbuster Schwarzenegger pictures.
After graduating, while working at a local video
store, he sold two rock songs that he penned the lyrics to. By 19, he was discovered by cult film director David DeCoteau,
who urged the youngster to keep writing, making movies, and acting. Knowing that Spudic was a huge fan of Full Moon
Entertainment and Charles Band, DeCoteau invited Eric to fly to Hollywood to tour the studios, meet the filmmakers, and to
make his first appearance in a Hollywood motion picture: MICRO MINI KIDS.
Eric returned home with much
knowledge and many connections. He started cranking out big-budget spec scripts such as THE TAKEOVER OF TOMORROW, TEENAGE
VIGILANTE, and DEAD EVIL. After realizing nobody wanted to produce them, he went back to acting, taking a leading role
in PSYCHO SANTA, which he also helped to produce. Shortly after, Eric was working on a Missouri-based horror flick called
THE UNDERTOW, when St. Louisan Eric Stanze recruited Spudic to direct his own script called KILLERS BY NATURE.
Around this time, Eric was also writing low-budget films to help pay
the rent. Some of these included AQUANOIDS and CREEPIES, both of which sold phenomenally well on video/dvd and overseas.
Eric also made long treks to act in DEAD CLOWNS and SAVAGE HARVEST 2 shortly after.
Then in 2004 came the big move to Hollywood. Eric soon hooked up with one of his favorite
filmmakers, Fred Olen Ray, making appearances in films such as BIKINI CHAIN GANG and THE LEGEND OF WILLIAM TELL. Eric
penned a new slasher called MASSACRE MANSION as his next directing vehicle. Meanwhile, he's been acting in a lot of
films for The Asylum such as SUPERCROC and 100 MILLION BC.
Eric's lifelong dreams are to act in movies in Bulgaria, the Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, Hawaii, Canada,
and the UK. As of 2011, Eric has worked on 70+ feature films, has over a quarter-million dvds in circulation,
and appears on cable television almost daily.
His website www.ericspudic.com has garnered over 55,000
hits. His current interests include hiking, Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido, ripping loud farts, and eating toasted ravioli.
He also hopes someday there will be a Jessica Biel / Jennifer Aniston sex tape.
