Monster Honey's Fright Fest Diary ~ Day 2!

A Horror Honeys WEB EXCLUSIVE with Sarah

Check out my recap of Day 1 HERE!


Friday

It's my first full day and I am definitely hoping for something spectacular after the letdown of Cell last night (See Zombie Honey Bella's review HERE and BE WARNED).

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 34!



This year, The Horror Honeys decided to take a pledge, rather than make a resolution there was zero chance of us keeping. Women in Film has launched the 52 Films by Women project, in which you take a pledge to watch just ONE film directed by a woman every week this year. Easy enough right? And since this is The Horror Honeys, we are going to guide you through the project, every week this year, with a featured horror film written or directed by a fierce female!

Take the pledge yourself here, and check out our next pick below!

Monster Honey's FrightFest Diary ~ Day One!

A WEB EXCLUSIVE Festival Recap with Sarah

The Woodstock of gore begins
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
With the cinemas teeming,
And everyone screaming or running in fear!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

That’s right; it is FrightFest time once again. Whilst other young people go to music festivals or go drinking on the beach, I instead spend the last weekend in August inside a dark cinema watching people get dismembered. Hey, we all have fun in different ways.

E-16, my throne for the weekend
This year is my second on a festival pass, although the venue has moved from London’s Leicester Square to the VUE Shepherd’s Bush. As ever, the pass goodie bag was awesome, including DVDs of Honeymoon (which I am yet to see) and Demonic, which I enjoyed last year (but do already own), badges, some funky fliers for films, and a From A House On Willow Street beanie hat. It’s currently a heatwave here in London, but the second the temperature drops, I am gonna be wearing it with style.

'INSIDE:' So Long and Thanks For All the Fish

A Gamer Honey WEB EXCLUSIVE Review with Kaley

Inside (2016)





When Playdead announced its new game, INSIDE, I was ecstatic. Hailed as better than its predecessor LimboI admit my expectations were pretty high going in. However, after playing through, I felt lost and empty inside (HA!), and not really in the way that I expected. I thought I would be filled with sadness that the journey was over, and instead I’m just a little pissed off.

Honey Buzz: New 'Rings' Trailer Released, and WTF did I just watch?


The new Rings trailer was released yesterday via Twitter, asking users to tweet with their hashtag in order to unlock the video and watch it on a special platform platform.

So, I did…


And I laughed my ass off.

The Evil Living: Fede Alvarez's 'Don't Breathe'

A WEB EXCLUSIVE Revenge Honey New Release Review by Linnie

Don't Breathe (2016)

In this age of media over-saturation, avoiding trailers has become an important part of the devoted movie-going experience. Before an audience has even had a chance to see a film, odds are solid that they've been subjected to so many different cuts of a trailer, that they have practically seen the entire film (cough cough Suicide Squad cough cough). When it comes to horror movies, however, skipping trailers is paramount to actually having any chance of enjoying yourself once you sit down in the theater.

So if you've seen the trailer for Fede Alvarez's Don't Breathe, stop. Don't watch it again. And try to forget what you saw already. The best thing you can do is go into the movie blind (pun intended), like I did, because Don't Breathe is like absolutely nothing you've seen before.

In the best possible way.

Sci-Fi(ish) Honey Jam ~ 'Muddy Waters'


It is not clear why we choose the fire pathway
Where we end is not the way that we had planned
All the spirits gather 'round like its our last day
To get across you know we’ll have to raise the sand
Oooh, I will ask you for mercy
I will come to you blind
What you’ll see is the worst me
I'm not the last of my kind


Here at the Horror Honeys, we are huge fans of singer-songwriter LP. Her songs are as beautiful and fascinating as her unforgettable voice; you could pick pretty much any track and end up obsessed. But the song "Muddy Waters," from her Death Valley EP, is this week's Honey Jam, because there is something almost post-apocalyptic about it. You can practically hear it playing over a scene of dirt-caked survivors, wandering a barren, war-torn landscape. (If a music supervisor steals this idea, we'll hex them. Just putting it out there). Listen to "Muddy Waters" below, then check out the rest of LP's amazing catalogue! You won't regret it. ~RH


Blu-ray and DVD Releases for August 23, 2016!

With new seasons of TV on the horizon, this week we see a flurry of horror TV home releases, along with some classic re-releases and a few underdogs! I'm sure we all know what everyone will be talking about this week though...
