The films, he said, have slowly built up a following.
"But we're not really a local thing," Hardiman said, frowning.
While his films are shot entirely in the surrounding area, he said they don't get a lot of the financing locally.
"We raise money through donations, but we get most of it elsewhere."
A lot of it, surprisingly, he said, comes from the U.K.
"They're really big horror fans over there. There's this one guy I talk to -- he has a film blog -- and he's pointed out all these places, film pubs, where he said we could easily show our movies."
Hardiman and company have batted around the idea of doing a kind of backpack tour of the U.K. Getting even more people to see their films, especially bringing them to an audience that appears to like what they do, is obviously very attractive.
"But we'll stay out of the moors," he joked, referring to the werewolf horror/comedy "American Werewolf in London."
Hardiman said he got the idea for the trilogy from the ending of 1980's "Motel Hell," which featured a character wearing a pig mask having a chainsaw fight.
"We thought that's where that movie should have started. It would have been a better movie."
As with most of Razor Sharp Studios films, "Pork Chop 3D" has a certain amount of tribute paid to the horror and cult films of the 1980s, mixed in with a generous dose of humor.
Locally, the film will be screened at the LaBelle Theater in South Charleston on Sep. 29 during the horror/sci-fi convention, Shocka-Con. It will also be screened Oct. 3 during West Virginia State University's Battle of the Beats homecoming event.
With the completion and release of the third film, Haridman said Razor Sharp is planning on taking a break from making movies until the spring.
"We're thinking of doing a stand-alone spin-off with Pig Girl," he said. "Do something darker that's more about suspense than comedy."
