Sean Breathnach is an Irish film director, writer and editor. His award winning films have been screened at film festivals all over the world. His debut feature film BEYOND THE WOODS was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and it was Empire Magazine's DTV must see in the June 2018 edition of the magazine.

"Beyond the Woods really works. Its strongest suit is the element that too many low-budget horror films bungle- believable characters and decent performances."
Kim Newman - Empire Magazine

"An unsettling movie that comes as a genuine surprise, reminds one of Lars Von Trier."
Rich Wilson - Exquisite Terror

"In many ways BEYOND THE WOODS feels like a polished shot-on-video horror flick directed by M Night Shyamalan."
Glenn Tolle - Rue Morgue
