horror

The Eerie Horror Fest kicks off this week at the historic Warner Theatre in downtown Erie, Pennsylvania and runs from October 4-7, 2023. For tickets and more information, go to www.eeriehorrorfest.com.

“This year the Eerie Horror Fest received submissions from 25 different countries,” says Festival Director John C. Lyons. “Every film submission was watched by at least 4 members of our programming team and we broke our own rules to select 6 Pitch Competition finalists. We were blown away by the amount of talent out there. The horror genre is truly alive and well!”

The highlight of the fest is that American filmmaker, photographer, and artist, Mark Pellington, will be in attendance at this year’s epic event. On Friday, October 6th, the Fest will be screening his 2002 cult classic, The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Debra Messing, and Will Patton. Pellington will join the festival’s pop-culture sociologist, Dr. Rhonda Matthews, for an in-depth Q&A immediately following the film. In addition, Pellington will take part in an industry panel on Saturday, October 7 and be available for meet and greet sessions where he will have original photos and storyboards from his various projects available for purchase and autographs.
