Trailer Buzz ~ Clowntergeist... um... yeah.

Eye Rolling Honey Buzz by Brittany

Much to our endless disdain, clowns are back in style. From Eli Roth’s body horror flick Clown (read Head Honey Kat's review HERE) to American Horror Story's Twisty to the remake of It, we can expect to see a whole lotta clown in the next year. One of the many films coming out will be Clowntergeist, the full-length directorial debut of Aaron Mirtes.

'Detour' - A Love-Letter to American Noir

A New Release Review with Horror TV Honey Kat Wells

Detour (2017)

Tye Sheridan is really something in Detour, a neo-noir thriller with more than enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, but not quite enough character development to keep you caring about anyone except for Tye Sheridan.

Written and directed by Christopher Smith (Severance, Triangle), Detour stars Sheridan (Mud, X-Men: Apocalypse) as Harper, a law student who is tortured by the fact that his mother is in a coma, and tormented by the idea that his asshole stepfather is responsible for the car accident that put her there. On the eve of a call from the doctors that he knows could mean they’ll have to pull the plug on mom, Harper, drunk and reckless, stumbles upon a hitman in a bar and makes a deal to have his stepfather taken out. The next morning, intent on making that hit and collecting $20,000 fee, Johnny Ray (yes, that is actually the hitman’s name, and he’s played by Emory Cohen (Brooklyn, The Place Beyond the Pines), who does a great job with a character who is wildly unsympathetic) shows up at Harper’s place with Cherry, his girl/stripper/prostitute to organize the hit. Harper no longer wants to go through with it, but Johnny Ray insists, and a wild trip to Vegas to take out the stepdad ensues.

The Santa Clarita Diet: Zombie Drew Barrymore is coming to Netflix!


Netflix has been pumping out the original series' left and right. So much so, it’s been hard to keep up. However, when the name Drew Barrymore is tied with something as fun as zombies, we tend to pay special attention.


Weekly Honey Jam(s) ~ A 'Rick & Morty' Ultra-Jam!


"Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. We're all going to die. Come watch TV."

If you aren't watching Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, a delightfully twisted spin on Back to the Future, then you are missing out. Not only is it the funniest, smartest, and most brilliantly cynical show on television right now, it's just damn entertaining. Episodes are either totally bonkers nonsense, or deeply moving explorations of the relationships at the heart of the show, and they are usually accompanied by some amazing song choices. So this week, I've picked five of my favorite songs used on the first two seasons of Rick and Morty (without context). So listen, jam, and then watch Rick and Morty! ~RH

PS - And always remember, kids...







Blu-ray and DVD Releases for January 17, 2017!

Ah, January. Once again, not a lot to speak of. Except for the blu-ray release of Train to Busan, so if you haven't seen it yet... No more excuses!

What Does the Future Have in Store in The Mothman?


An Urban Legend & Film Review with Monster Honey Sarah

The Mothman Prophecies (2002)

A drawing of what would become known as the 'Mothman'
Cryptozoology is the study of animals and plants that are outside of the norm in of nature. Most become simple local folklore in whatever area they’ve been sighted in, but there are a few that become more widely known and a part of general folkloric culture. The Loch Ness monster is such an example, or the Jersey Devil. This overlap where urban legend and mythical monster meet is excellent fodder for some truly strange stories. Are the monsters real or simply hoaxes inspired by a kind of metaphorical frenzy? And if they are real, then what exactly are they? Aliens? The missing link? Demons? In the late 1960s in the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, several people reported sighting of something that came to be called The Mothman; a humanoid creature with large wings and glowing red eyes. Some speculate that it was an alien, or a supernatural entity, and others say it was merely a small town tricksters wanting attention. Whatever the real reason, the events are undeniably strange and serve up a fascinating set-up for Mark Pellington’s 2002 film, The Mothman Prophecies.

Another year, another project at The Horror Honeys! In 2016, we took part in the #52FilmsByWomen project, putting our own spin on it by focusing on horror films and thrillers written or directed by ladies.

The list for 2017 was compiled by all the Horror Honeys, and includes some classics, as well as some lesser known favorites. So join us on our live tweeting journey. It's going to be a hell of a year.

The Year Ahead...


Thanks to the recent mainstream popularity of the horror genre, horror websites have become a dime a dozen. Blogs, news sites, opinion pages… They are everywhere. And they all have something to say about horror. Some are run by giant studios, some are run by a guy in his apartment, but one thing is a constant: few of them are run by women.

Honey Buzz: American Horror Story Gets Two More Seasons


At this point, when American Horror Story starts trending on Twitter, you wonder what kind of non-headline, no-news, not-really-a-hint Ryan Murphy’s team has released about the next season...
