LITTLE ROCK HORROR PICTURE SHOW
7 p.m. Market Street Cinema. $40 (full pass).

Well, another Valentine's Day has come and gone and most of us have somehow managed to survive it. What better way to recuperate from this Pyrrhic victory over the Romantic-Industrial Complex than with three days of blood-curdling terror from the darkest bowels of hell?

Brought to you by the good folks from the Little Rock Film Festival, this horror mini-fest is another in a string of really cool developments in the local film scene, another of which is the monthly Argenta Film Series, which screens "The Wise Kids" at Argenta Community Theater at 7 p.m. Thursday night.

The first offering at the Little Rock Horror Film Show is "Madison County," an awesomely creepy horror/hixploitation flick set in the hills and hollers of Northwest Arkansas that'll ensure that you'll be ultra creeped out forever whenever you hear someone scream "woo pig sooie." The film, directed by Eric England and shot outside of Ozark, premiered at Screamfest L.A. back in October and was so popular it earned an encore screening.

After the film, England and actor/producer Ace Marrero will participate in a Q&A with the Times' David Koon. Of course, there are plenty more thrills and chills and buzzed-about flicks from around the world, including "The Holding," "The Tunnel," "Exit Humanity" and more. Check out the full schedule.
