The third annual Little Rock Horror Picture Show will be March 20-23. This year the festival is teaming up with the Arkansas Food Bank to “Take a Bite out of Hunger” because going hungry is a scary thing for too many families and children in the state of Arkansas. If you bring three or more non-perishable food items when you purchase tickets to LRHPS you’ll get $5 off the price of one full pass or $3 off the price of one day pass.
Opening Night festivities include a special guests Brooke Butler and Tom Williamson, the stars of All Cheerleaders Die! The two will be on hand to take part in a special Q&A with festival goers following the film.
Following the film there will be a party in true LRFF Fashion at WT Bubba’s featuring music from Bonnie Montgomery and Nathan Howdeshell!
This year’s Little Rock Horror Picture Show is PACKED with shorts from all over the world! As always we have horror shorts, but this year we have quite a few animation shorts, science fiction shorts as well as a steam punk film. Make sure you get your passes soon because you don’t want to miss any of these films!

Made in Arkansas
The Made in Arkansas line up is pretty big this year. Not only are is the LRHPS showing a feature made in Arkansas, the festival is also showing the horror/sci-fi films from last year’s 48 Hour Film Project along with a wonderful line up of horror shorts from all over Arkansas.
This year the festival is showing the premiere of Steal Kill Destroy from Carson and Garrison Martin and starring Gunnar Fritz Stansson. A story about a petty thief who leads two gullible documentarians down a path of theft, debauchery, and murder.
