The Horror Honeys

Blu-ray and DVD Releases for February 21, 2017!

Not much coming out this week, but there are a couple of worthwhile re-releases worth checking in to. Otherwise... meh.

A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 7!


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. This year, we've decided to open it up to a bigger array of genres, and are including films by iconic female writers, directors, and even producers! 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.

Weekly Honey Jam - 'Me and a Gun'


It was me and a gun and a man on my back 
And I sang, "Holy holy" as he buttoned down his pants 
You can laugh, it's kinda funny 
The things you think at times like these 
Like I haven't seen Barbados 
So I must get out of this...


Tori Amos is the patron saint of women who haven't lived easy lives, and her songs often seem to give voice to feelings a lot of us can't express. Her 1992 album Little Earthquakes was full of music that eased many of us through emotions we didn't understand, but the vocal-only track, "Me and a Gun," is one that is still painfully important. And really shouldn't be. But as long as it is, may future generations find the same comfort in Tori Amos' music that we found then.



Blu-ray and DVD Releases for February 14, 2017!

A Revenge Honey New Release Review with Linnie
John Wick: Chapter 2

There is always an undeniable and, let's face it, deserved, apprehension that comes with finding out that a fantastic movie is getting a sequel. That fear is even more founded when the first film is one of your favorites. Chad Stahelski's John Wick is one of my favorite films. Not just one of my favorite action movies, or genre films, but one of my favorite movies, full stop. It was gorgeously directed, and deftly melded genres while paying tribute to the revenge films of the 70s and still somehow providing Keanu Reeves with a vehicle that allowed him to truly shine.

John Wick is one of my favorite movies.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is a fantastic follow-up, building on everything that was amazing about the original and expanding on the story in an organic way, without feeling forced. It's also just a damn good action movie.

Weekly Honey Jam ~ 'Castle'


Oh, all of these minutes passing, sick of feeling used

If you wanna break these walls down, you're gonna get bruised

Now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it

Already choking on my pride, so there's no use crying about it
I'm headed straight for the castle

They wanna make me their queen

And there's an old man sitting on the throne that's saying that I probably shouldn't be so mean

I'm headed straight for the castle

They've got the kingdom locked up

And there's an old man sitting on the throne that's saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut


Somedays, you just want to punch everyone in the face and fuck shit up. People have worn you down to your last nerve, hurt you, and you're out of fucks to give. When that happens, you need a song that will fit your mood, and soundtrack the end of your rope. For me, that song has been "Castle," by newly-minted rock goddess Halsey. On those days when I'm just done, and the people I want to punch aren't in punching distance, this is the track that makes me feel better. And now, I share it with you, darling ghouls. Enjoy! ~RH

Blu-ray and DVD Releases for February 7, 2017!

There are a lot of re-issues coming out this week, but the "Monster Mayhem" blu-rays seem to just be re-releases of the same Universal blu-rays with new covers. So unless you are a completist, tread cautiously.

A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 5!


Another year, another project at The Horror Honeys!

Weekly Honey Jam - 'I Am, I Feel'


Oh you said, "Angel your halo ain't fitted that good for a little while now 
You ain't got that certain glow that I get a kick out of" 
(Like it bothered me) 
I'm taking it on the chin, with a grin 
But my feet are itchin' and itchin' 
And he says, "Don't cry my precious one 
Coz I ain't got no sympathy for you" 
And I am, I feel, like I wanna smash his face in 
Yeah! That'd be fun 
Coz I sure got a fist for a fight


Looking for a "girl power" anthem in these angry as fuck times? Look no further than this (unfortunately) forgotten 1996 track from Alisha's Attic, "I Am, I Feel." Feel like smashing some faces in? Get it girl. We'll be right behind you, blasting this song at 11.
