David DeCoteau (born January 5, 1962, Portland, Oregon) is an American and Canadian film director and producer. DeCoteau has worked professionally in the movie business since he was 18 years old. He got his start through Roger Corman, who hired him in 1980 as a production assistant at New World Pictures. In 1986, DeCoteau directed and produced his first feature film for Charles Band. Most of DeCoteau's films are easily distinguishable by his "trademark" homoeroticism - most of his movies featuring handsome, almost-naked young men in softcore pornographic situations. DeCoteau has produced and directed more than ninety motion pictures over the past twenty-five years. He resides in British Columbia and Los Angeles.
