The Late Movies: Eerie, Indiana

Erica Palan

On December 11, 1816, Indiana became the 19th state. We should be grateful for this because the great state of Indiana has given us a lot in terms of culture: the Indy 500, the Jackson 5, Greg Kinnear, and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. It has also served as the setting for an underrated television show called Eerie, Indiana which, by the grace of the YouTubian gods, we can watch now. Some background: Marshall Teller and his family move from New Jersey to Eerie, Indiana, where he encounters all manner of bizarre scenarios with his friend Simon.
