Sierras Edge Pictures is a premiere film production company located in the Reno area. We strive to bring back to films, the techniques lost in the early years of films, rather than covering everything with CGI and presenting Hollywood standard shots that you see in every movie. We focus on strong stories and interesting characters and old camera techniques. In the vein of Alfred Hitchcock, Jean Cocteau, Fritz Lang, F W Murnau, Robert Siodmak, Jacques Tourneu, James Whale and Tod Browning, to name a few.
We at Sierras Edge Pictures believe that we don't have to create an original story to make a film. There are so many tales already written that scream from the past to be made into films. God knows we don't need anymore films made with a lot of T & A and bloody gore. We strive to make your skin crawl and keep you up with haunted, restless sleep for months to come.
Sierras Edge Pictures are creating a string of short films by Authors of the early 1900's such as H P Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, M R James, W W Jacobs, Oliver Onions, Samuel Taylor Colridge, E F Benson, Walter de la Mare, William Hope Hodgson, August Derleth as well as more modern authors such as Ramsey Campbell and myself Philip Reyth.
We are calling this string of shorts: The Eldritch Cycle: Lovecraft Theater
