Eyes of Fire

Eyes of Fire

Directed by Avery Crounse

On the 18th century frontier, an adulterous preacher and his followers flee to ‘the promised land’ only to enter a valley of lust, madness, pagan vengeance and hallucinatory terror. In 1983, acclaimed photographer Avery Crounse made his debut as writer/director with what is considered to be the seminal American folk horror film. Misunderstood by audiences and mishandled by distributors, it has remained virtually unseen until now.

On the 18th century frontier, an adulterous preacher and his followers flee to ‘the promised land’ only to enter a valley of lust, madness, pagan vengeance and hallucinatory terror.

Cast: Dennis Lipscomb, Guy Boyd, Rebecca Stanley, Sally Klein, Karlene Crockett

When I was a kid, this movie was one of the few that really scared me and after seeing it, I wanted to again and again but until now it was a hard find. Thank you to Shudder for bringing it back but aside from nostalgia, it is both a terrible movie and a guilty pleasure.

Intereting premise, but the rest not much. Acting wasn’t bad
