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, these films and stories 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 reverse that trend.
