The blood and guts behind the Little Rock Horror Picture Show released their slab of out-of-state films today, with the second-annual festival opening with the untitled Scooby-Doo-meets-slasher flick formerly known as "Saturday Morning Massacre." Check out the trailer here.
The festival will also feature four panels on aspects of horror film making, including writing, directing, producing and acting. The closing night film will be "Roadside," Arkansas native Eric England's new thriller about a pair of travelers tormented by an unseen psychopath while trapped in a stalled car. England's old school slasher flick "Madison County" won the audience award at last year's LRHPS. Following the screening of "Roadside," there will be a festival after-party at White Water Tavern featuring a performance by Foul Play Cabaret.
The LRHPS will run March 22-24. Tickets can be purchased at the Little Rock Film Festival's Eventbrite.com site.
