Organizers for the Little Rock Horror Picture Show announced yesterday that “Roadside,” the new horror thriller by Arkansas filmmaker Eric England, will close this year’s LRHPS, which runs March 22-24. The film is about a young couple who are held hostage in their car on a remote road by a psychopath with a rifle.

The screening will serve as the U.S. premiere of “Roadside.” England’s first film, the retro-slasher flick “Madison County,” won the audience prize at last year’s LRHPS.
