HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (6/28/13) - On Friday, June 21, Big Biting Pig Productions held the World Premiere of Lucid at the Ballard Convention Center in Madisonville, KY. Thunder echoed eerily throughout the building as excited moviegoers got in line for their chance to get an autograph from Bill "Leatherface" Johnson of Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 fame.
In all, over 300 people were in attendance and the film proved a huge success. The two masterminds behind Big Biting Pig Productions, Steve Hudgins and PJ Woodside, were thrilled with the turnout.
"The crowd was lovely and seemed to be having a great time despite the thunderstorm washing out the 'red carpet' aspect," says PJ Woodside. "I've heard nothing but praise for the movie and the new venue. Bill Johnson was a trooper and signed a lot of DVDs, posters, photos, and even a few other 'unique' items."
"It was our first time at the new venue, the Ballard Convention Center, and everyone seemed to have a blast," says Steve Hudgins. "We're happy to be able to have our premieres in Madisonville. It gives the folks in and around town a chance to experience a movie world premiere and meet a horror icon like Bill 'Leatherface' Johnson."
If you would like to purchase a copy of Lucid you can order one on the Big Biting Pig Productions website or at Red Wagon Antiques in the Parkway Plaza Mall in Madisonville.
