Welcome to the Eerie, Indiana community on LiveJournal! Thank you for stopping by, and congratulations on your excellent taste in kids’ TV from the early nineties.

This post will eventually contain links to all the fanworks, challenges, prompts, memes, series rewatches, character discussions, episode discussions, interesting interviews or news articles, and everything else you might need to know about the Eerie fandom in general or eerie_indiana in particular.

It is currently unfinished and likely to remain a work in progress as this fandom is amazing and creates new fanworks faster than I can tag or index them.

In the meantime, I suggest you check out our "fanworks" and "comm event" tags to see what is on offer. Consider starting with a trip to Better Weird Than Dead: An Eerie, Indiana Fic Fest, a quick look at the information below, and maybe working up some tasty fandom treats of your own?

NeoGaf forum post: Obscure toys, shows, movies from your childhood [Oct. 20th, 2017|08:05 am]

Being born in the early 80's I grew up right around when the home video market exploded. There were a ton of movies released directly on video. Some of these were actually pretty good, and the special effects at times could be really well done as well. Not all of these will fall under this catagory, point being there were a lot of lesser known movies released. So I started thinking about some of the stuff I grew up with that I never hear anyone talk about and wanted to see what others can contribute as well.

For a very, very long time I would try to talk to people my age about Eerie, Indiana and no one knew what I was talking about.

Fortunately in the last few years it feels like people have remembered and found each other online because I see it come up a lot. I guess it doesn't count as much for this thread for that reason, but it feels like it was wiped from the public memory for a long time before returning.

The Hoosierist: Local Horror Films [Oct. 20th, 2017|07:50 am]

Q: I’m having a horror-themed Halloween movie party. Are there any Indiana-based films or TV shows I can include?

A: For a state that looks like an elaborate Children of the Corn backdrop, the pickings are slim. On the movie front, there’s An American Crime, a retelling of the loathsome Sylvia Likens murder that, honestly, sounds like an awful party flick. Happily, the small screen offers better options, including the NBC series Eerie, Indiana, which ran for only 19 episodes in the early ’90s, but earned a substantial cult following. Then there’s the gold standard of Hoosier horror, Netflix’s Stranger Things. Set in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins, it’s basically a salute to ’80s horror-movie tropes, with monsters in rubber suits, scary government agents, and a group of plucky grade-schoolers on bicycles. The show’s second season comes out this month, so heat up some pizza rolls and call your friends.

Scifi/supernatural TV show about two kids (brothers or friends) in a weird town.

There was this TV show about two brothers or friends, about 12-14. It had scifi and I think supernatural elements. The only episode I remember went like this:

A mom dad and 2 kids go to a chinese restaurant and get fortune cookies. All the fortunes are a little weird but come true in some way. The dad bumps into a homeless man with weird items in a shopping trolley.

The two young kids (protagonists) take this stuff and it's a bunch of electronics. They figure out that these are all components of a single machine/device and start putting it together. When they finish constructing it, it's just a helmet with a VCR (and maybe antenas) attached to it. There is also a cassette. One of the boys then puts it on and has his memories replaced by a scientist who claims to have removed all his memories and stored them on the cassette tape the boys put into the VCR.

Turns out the homeless man was the scientist, who removed his memories and put them on tape. The homeless man is kidnapped at some point and interrogated by bad guys trying to steal the scientist's secrets. The boys set out to return everyones memories and save the scientist.

The show was set in a town in the USA. I dont remember the name but the show claimed that it was the town with the most supernatural activity and general weirdness.

I watched this sometime between 2005-2009, I think. I'm confident the show actually came out in the 90s, just because of the VCR, but I'm not certain.

This is Eerie, Indiana.

The series revolves around Marshall Teller, a teenager whose family moves to the desolate town of Eerie, Indiana, population of 16,661. While moving into his new home, he meets Simon Holmes, one of the few normal people in Eerie. Together, they are faced with bizarre scenarios

The episode you're looking for is No Brain, No Pain (Season 1, Episode 15) from 1992.

Marshall and Simon witness a homeless man being attacked by a woman with a ray gun and decide to help him out. Although the man mumbles nonsense and seems fascinated by electronics, the boys suspect that there's more to him than that and perhaps he's not as crazy as everyone believes. But things get really weird when they turn on the strange contraption the man was making.

Everything you mentioned is there: The Chinese restaurant with fortunes that eventually come true, the helmet that transfers the kid's memories to a tape etc. You can see it here, and here's the intro:

Chris Ween: Eerie Indiana is eerily similar to Stranger Things - except it was ripping off Stephen King 25 years ago.

Gordon Bennett: Eerie Indiana was great. That show was filled with clever ideas.

ArthurVandelay: The only thing good to come from Indiana.

Joe Satin: My son and I watched this a few years ago on Netflix. Still a pretty good show.
