Overlooked, underrated, and misunderstood, independent horror movies have been 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. There is an incredible amount of talent in this field that goes unnoticed an unappreciated, and we are proud to announce that the Eerie Horror Film Festival hopes to reverse that trend. This event was established in order to give filmmakers and writers in the horror /sci-fi genres a venue to have their work showcased to people in the industry.
Since 2004 the Eerie Horror Film Festival has screened nearly 100 indie films and has featured such guests as Lloyd Kaufman (Troma), Gunnar
Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Mark Borchardt (American Movie), John Hancock (Academy Award nominated director), Sean David Morton (Joe Killionaire/talk show legend), Ben Meade (Bazaar Bizarre), Michael Stanley (Attack of the Beast Creatures), Debbie Rochon (actress), Pam
Sutch (actress), Greg Lamberson (Slime City), Jamian Snow (author), Dorothy Tristan (screenwriter), Len Kabasinski (Swamp Zombies), Travis Bowen (actor/director) and many. many more!
In 2004 with the generosity of Lion's Gate Films we were able to show the North Coast premiere of the movie "SAW", two weeks before it hit the theaters! Several of our selected films have gone on to get distribution deals after our Fest
including "The Last Horror Film" which was picked up and released by Fangoria a few weeks after it won Best of The Fest at our event!
The 2006 Eerie Horror Film Festival will be even bigger and better, with more special guest and surprises! We hope that you will be a part
of this year's festivities!
Erie is only a short drive from the cities of Cleveland, OH, Buffalo, NY, and Pittsburgh, PA. For those of you looking for other activities
throughout the weekend.
