Horror art show, 'Elm Street' screening, Day of the Dead party from LRFF

Posted By on Mon, Oct 14, 2013 at 1:46 PM

It's October, that spookiest of months, and the braaaaains behind the Little Rock Film Festival and their creepy little sister The Little Rock Horror picture show have some cool events coming up to celebrate. 

At 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 17 at the Argenta Community Theater, the LRFF's Argenta Film Series will present a free screening of Wes Craven's original "Nightmare on Elm Street." If you've never seen it or it's been awhile, check it out. Though Freddy Krueger got progressively more cheesy as the sequels wore on (and on, and on), the first one is still a first-rate horror flick, and has weathered much better than the career of everybody in it except Johnny Depp. Seating's limited. RSVP here.  

Need a little something to spruce up your lair, nest, dungeon, hive, crypt or spooky, abandoned amusement park? You're in luck. Bring your folding money "The Art of Horror," an auction of horror and fear-themed art, 8 p.m. Oct. 16 at White Water Tavern. Proceeds benefit the Little Rock Horror Picture Show.  

While Halloween has gotten a little gore-centric for my taste in recent years, we'll always have Dia de los Muertos, that Latino holiday where the ghosts of Grandma and Grandpa get to party like it's 1899. The LRFF's Day of the Dead party kicks off at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, 17th floor of the Bank of American Building in downtown Little Rock. Admission is free, and attendees are encouraged to get one more use out of the Halloween costume.
