Uncle Creepy Gets Eerie
The 2007 Eerie Horror Film Festival seems so far away, but that doesn’t mean that Greg Ropp and the rest of the EHFF crew have any time to waste in getting this scary ship of shrieks all set for sail in October.
In order to provide you with the freakiest fest around, the EHFF has just drawn some blood from right here at Dread Central. Our very own Uncle Creepy has been invited to join their advisory board. As an advisor, our dear old uncle will be administering advice and working closely with fest president Greg Ropp to ensure that 2007 is the best fest yet.
"I'm deeply honored that Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton has accepted our request to join the Advisory Board of the Eerie Horror Film Festival. Uncle Creepy will be kept up to date on all our activities and will offer valuable advice and input to our organization throughout the year," states fest founder Greg Ropp. "Steve will provide the Eerie Horror Film Festival with contacts and resources unimaginable to us in years past; something for which we are indeed most grateful."
Ropp explains, "Our Advisory Board will consist of six to seven individuals from different areas of the horror genre; directors, actors, publishers and other industry professionals. These individuals will be made aware of our activities and will offer advice, information and expertise throughout the planning stages of our annual festival and various special events."
"It's fitting that Uncle Creepy was first to be added to the Advisory Board this season as he is the ultimate horror fan and has been living an breathing this genre for most of his life. We have requests in to others, a couple of which should be confirming their positions after the New Year. Be prepared for some major surprises!"
"We are looking forward to big things with the Eerie Horror Film Festival and hope to continue growing and gaining national attention and respect from all of the horror filmmakers, screenwriters and fans out there. With the invaluable assistance of people such as Steve Barton and entities like Dread Central, I don't know how we can go wrong."
The Eerie Horror Film Festival is scheduled for October 10th through the 14th at the Erie Playhouse. Submissions are being accepted for both the film and screenplay competitions. Check out the EHFF website for full details on how to submit your film or screenplay for the 2007 event!
