Rebecca Swan is an American filmmaker and screenwriter known for working in the horror genre.


Rebecca Swan (previously Scott Swan) was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1970. She is the co-screenwriter, with Drew McWeeny, of director John Carpenter's two Masters of Horror episodes: Cigarette Burns and Pro-Life. These episodes were produced as part of the Masters series for Showtime. When the anthology series moved to NBC in 2008, they penned "Skin & Bones", an episode for the retitled show Fear Itself.

Swan has been writing with Drew McWeeny since the two met in high school. Their plays Sticks & Stones and Broken Bones were first produced in Los Angeles in the mid 1990's.

Swan's most recent work is the 2018 horror movie Extremity. Shot in the City of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada in 2017, Swan co-wrote the screenplay, served as associate producer and second unit director, and also appears in the movie briefly.[1]
