Sliff 2016 – Missouri-Shot Horror Eyes Of Fire from 1983 Screens November 8th

Eyes Of Fire screens Tuesday, November 8th at 7:30pm in 35mm at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (470 E Lockwood Ave,) as part of The St. Louis International Film Festival. The screening will be introduced by We Are Movie Geeks own Tom Stockman

A few years back, Cinema St. Louis by chance came into possession of a 35mm print of Eyes Of Fire, an unjustly forgotten horror film shot more than three decades ago in the backwoods of the Missouri Ozarks. It was the directorial debut of experimental photographer Avery Crounse. For the 25th anniversary of the St. Louis International Film Festival, Cinema St. Louis feels duty-bound to give a respectful nod to their celluloid past — every other work in the fest screens digitally — by cracking open the film cans and offering a rare opportunity to view this criminally underseen gem in glorious 35mm. The event takes place at 7:30pm on Wednesday.
