LITTLE ROCK HORROR PICTURE SHOW
Various times. Argenta Community Theater. $40 pass. $7 for individual screenings.

This writer has never been one of those happy-go-lucky types drawn to rom-coms and Woody Allen movies. Though my taste for gore has diminished over the years, back in the dark days of teenagehood, I liked my movie characters like I like my steaks: bloody and relentlessly pursued by a sneering man with a knife.

I still get in the mood for a horror film these days, which is what makes an immersion in the Little Rock Horror Picture Show so cool. The horrid genetic mistake the Little Rock Film Festival keeps chained in the attic, the LRHPS is three days of blood, terror and mayhem, and a hell of a lot of fun.

One flick to definitely catch this year is "Roadside," the latest film by Arkansas filmmaker Eric England. The closer of the festival, it's the story of a couple trapped in a stalled car by a psychopath with a rifle. Sounds like the feel-good hit of the year. You can see the schedule and buy tickets here.

After the jump, check out the LRHPS teaser.
