“Fessenden is… One of the most original voices to emerge in the horror field”
— Guillermo del Toro

“Glass Eye Pix is… One of the indie scene’s most productive and longest-running companies…”
— Filmmaker Magazine

“A company like GLASS EYE PIX—and, in turn, SCAREFLIX—is the future of indie cinema, a small, individually run force,
driven by passion and an aesthetic vision that can embrace both pure character driven pieces like Wendy and Lucy,
as well as informed, intelligent genre films such as The House of the Devil and I Sell The Dead…
for being such an inspiring force in the industry, we give Larry Fessenden the 2009 GOLDEN HAMMER AWARD.
He’s the past, present, and future combined. He is American Independent Cinema.”
— Hammer To Nail

“Mr. Fessenden… a staple of the New York underground scene as a writer, director, producer and actor…”
— The New York Times

“New York’s Monster of Independent Film”
— The Wall Street Journal

“one of the sharpest minds in modern horror”
— Onion A.V. Club

“Fessenden, whose own directorial efforts have included the vampire-addiction pic “Habit”
and the unnerving eco-anxiety chiller “The Last Winter,”
has geared production shingle Glass Eye Pix toward a hybrid of intellectual and visceral horror….”
-– Variety

“Larry Fessenden and his production company, Glass Eye Pix, along with their low-budget horror sideline,
Scareflix, have been making some of the best indie horror to come out in recent years.”
— Dread Central

“Fessenden may be producing the best brains-before-blood horror in North America today”
— The Village Voice

“Co-producer Larry Fessenden, who directs socially conscious horror…
seem determined to press the genre beyond mere slice-and-dice…”
— NPR

“A New York City based horror film director, Fessenden owns Glass Eye Pix
which has produced almost all of the pivotal movies from the new wave of young horror directors…”
— SLATE

“…Glass Eye Pix should be recognizable by all horror fans as the production studio
that has put out tons of great genre fare over the years…”
— GUERRILLA GEEK
