“The Little Rock Horror Picture Show is a great way to have a lot of fun with friends getting scared in many languages! When something creeps you out a little too much, you then get to ask the director, ‘Hey, why’d you do that?’ and I think that’s something most people would enjoy”Justin Nickels, LRHPS Director
