'Roadside' to close LR Horror Picture Show

Posted By on Fri, Feb 1, 2013 at 1:50 PM

Organizers for the Little Rock Horror Picture Show announced yesterday that "Roadside," the new horror thriller by Arkansas filmmaker Eric England, will close this year's LRHPS, which runs March 22-24. The film is about a young couple who are held hostage in their car on a remote road by a psychopath with a rifle.

The screening will serve as the U.S. premiere of "Roadside." England's first film, the retro-slasher flick "Madison County," won the audience prize at last year's LRHPS.

  • City board discusses LGBT protection ordinance, Webb says votes there for passage

    At their weekly meeting tonight, the Little Rock Board of Directors discussed next week's vote on an ordinance that would protect LGBT city workers from discrimination and require contractors with the city to abide by non-discrimination rules that include sexual orientation and gender identity. Asked about a potential conflict with the state's Act 137, the recently passed law which forbids municipalities from extending protections to gays and lesbians, city attorney Tom Carpenter told the board he hadn't consider the state law because he believes a federal supremacy argument will prevail.

  • Staff Picks: 'It Follows,' slow-motion cowboys, a guide to songbirds in Arkansas and more

    A hearty recommendation for the very smart scare-flick "It Follows," in theaters now. Low budget, high concept, and simply the best American horror film I've seen since "The Blair Witch Project." I won't say too much, lest I give away the film's genuinely creepy premise, but I will say that it's a through-the-looking-glass story that owes more than a bit to films like "Ju-On" and other topsy-turvy-terrifying horror flicks of Asia. Thinly-veiled teenage sex angst and worries about venereal disease have never been so scary. Seriously: see it now.
