LR Horror Picture Show announces opening night film

Posted By on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 10:05 AM

The Little Rock Horror Picture Show, the Little Rock Film Festival's creepy little sister (scheduled for Feb. 17-19 at Market Street Cinema), announced their opening night film today, and it's Arkie to the bone: the Arkansas-made hillbilly slasher film "Madison County." Official website for the film here.

Written and directed by Arkansas homeboy Eric England and shot in and around the town of Ozark, the film — which claims to be "based on true events" — appears to be built on the classic slasher flick scenario: a group of well-scrubbed college kids stumble into a backwater hell where they're stalked by a maniac with a penchant for sharp blades and wearing a rotting pig's head for a mask. See the trailer above for more.

Looks like another fun time in the dark. More details on the festival as they come.
