Overlooked, underrated, and misunderstood, the horror and science fiction genres have been virtually ignored and shunned by the mainstream since the earliest days of cinema.

Through the decades, horror and science fiction films, stories (and most recently, video games), have entertained and thrilled audiences around the world and continue to grow in popularity to this very day.

Slowly but surely they are now 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 reverse that trend.

Since 2004 the Eerie Horror Film Festival has screened over 200 films and has featured appearances by Jason Mewes (Clerks), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), Dee Wallace Stone (Cujo), Tony Todd (Candyman), Tom Savini (From Dusk Till Dawn), PJ Soles (Halloween), Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre '74), Lloyd Kaufman (Troma), Eugene Clark (Land of the Dead), Joe Pilato (Day of the Dead), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies), Tom Atkins (Halloween III), Charles Cyphers (Halloween), Nancy Loomis(Halloween), Alex Vincent (Child's Play), Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick (The Omen '06), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Brian Andrews (Halloween), Mark Borchardt (American Movie), John Hancock (Let's Scare Jessica to Death), Dorothy Tristan (screenwriter), Mark Steensland (The Gospel According to Philip K.
