Bjorn Anderson’s horror film, “Eyes in the Dark,” will be premiering at Seattle’s True Independent Film Festival (STIFF) in June. The screening of Anderson’s film will be on Saturday, June 5, at 7:45 p.m. at the Jewelbox Theater at the Rendezvous in downtown Seattle.
The film was produced by Islanders Joseph Cole and Marco Scaringi, and Mike Ash and Robyn Scaringi. Both Cole and Marco Scaringi attended Mercer Island High School with Anderson.
The movie was filmed in the Cascade Mountains and is about an unknown force hunting travelers near Snoqualmie Pass. The cast and crew was made up entirely of locals from the Seattle area.
“I’ve always found that our own imaginations can come up with something far creepier than anything we can put on screen,” said Anderson.
Anderson owns Emerald City Pictures, a video production company, and “Eyes in the Dark” is his second feature film. The first, “Warrior’s End,” premiered at STIFF in 2009.
