When: Tue., Nov. 8, 8 p.m. 2016
If you prefer to watch your films on film, not digital projections, Eyes of Fire is your only chance to do so at the St. Louis International Film Festival. The 1983 film is a horror story set in the wilderness of colonial America. A preacher is sentenced to death for polygamy, but escapes with his followers into the woods. Harried by the Native American tribes, they end up in a valley that the tribes consider forbidden territory. But when the fugitives discover why it's forbidden, they'll wish they let the Native Americans take them. Eyes of Fire is an unjustly forgotten gem of the horror genre. It screens tonight at 8 p.m. at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.cinemastlouis.org). Tickets are $10 to $13.
