Overlooked, underrated, and misunderstood, independent horror and science fiction movies have been virtually ignored and shunned by the mainstream film industry since it began more than a century ago.
Through the decades, these films have entertained and thrilled audiences around the world and continue to grow in popularity to this very day, slowly but surely gaining the appreciation and respect that they deserve.
There is an incredible amount of talent in this field that goes unnoticed and unappreciated, and The Eerie Horror Film Festival hopes to to reverse that trend.
The Eerie Horor Film Festival will take place in October of 2008 at the Erie Playhouse and Avalon Hotel in Erie, Pa. Dates have yet to be announced, but keep checking Eerie’s official site or MySpace page for future announcements!
