Do you like a good scare? Then Little Rock Horror Picture Show is for you.  Presented by the Little Rock Film Festival March 22-24, the best in the horror genre from around the world will be shown.

Spencer Parsons’ film — Saturday Morning Massacre — is the opening night event on March 22.  Several Little Rock Film Festival  alums were involved in the production, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival in 2012.  The movie is set in the early 1990s and is a bloody parody of the Saturday morning cartoons, big dog and all. It tells the story of a young team of paranormal investigators who decide to prove paranormal activity isn’t credible.  Their last job, which they take for desperately needed money, has disastrous results.LRHPS_roadside

A world premiere rounds out the festival with the showing of Russellville native Eric England’s latest film entitled Roadside.  Madison County, which was England’s first movie, won the audience award at the 2012 event and packed the house with each showing.  Roadside tells the story of a young man and his pregnant wife as they head home for the holidays.  After experiencing car trouble en-route, they realize they are not alone.
