Honey Sci-Fi Buzz ~ Own a Piece of Ray Bradbury's History!

Ray Bradbury may have been one of the most prolific sci-fi authors in history, but he was a collector of things that made him happy, just like anyone else. And as if evidence by an auction taking place featuring some of his most prized collections, science fiction wasn't the only thing that Bradbury enjoyed...

He was a total Disney freak...

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Flagpole Sitta'

Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a TV
Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs, now I'm an amputee, god damn you
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot 'cause I'm in Hell

Disturbing Behavior, the Stepford-high school student film from 1998, is kind of... meh. It doesn't really hold up with time and that's mostly because it's distinctly late 90s. However, there is no question that this movie maintains a bit of nostalgia for those of us who were starting high school the year it came out. It was loaded with crush-worthy eye candy (HELLO Honey-fav Ethan Embry!) and who couldn't relate with that feeling of being less-than-perfect in a world full of cookie-cutter sameness? But, the one element of this movie that will always be amazing is the alt-rock soundtrack. Specifically, Harvey Danger's "Flagpole Sitta," an anthem of outsiderness that blasted through a pivotal film moment of rebellion. I'm not going to lie. To this day, when that song comes on the radio, I roll the windows down, turn the volume up, and remember what it was like to be in high school. And terrified of being a pod person. ~RH

Honey Buzz ~ Twisty The Clown is Coming for YOU

Like a bad teenage romance, those amazing bastards at FX have been teasing the crap out of us all summer. With all of the trailers, interviews, set photos, cast announcements...By the time October 8th hits, we're all going to be so ready for Freakshow, it'll be almost embarrassing.

Like that level. Yes. 
To add to this delicious torture, a new poster released yesterday, and now this...two new teasers should have us all packing ourselves off for therapy by the time October hits.

Friday Favorites - Anthology Films!

What could possibly be more awesome than a great horror movie? How about a horror movie made up of MULTIPLE fantastic mini-movies? The anthology horror film has been a staple of the genre for decades, and while there have been more than a few bombs, some of them have become absolute classics. From originals like Dead of Night (1945) to new classics like Three... Extremes (2004), horror anthologies quickly become fan favorites because they usually have a little bit of something for everyone. This week, the Honeys share their all-time favorite horror anthology films with you! Do YOU have a favorite? Do you share a favorite with a Honey? Let us know on Twitter, using #horroranthology!

Honey Buzz ~ Rumors STILL Swirling Over 'Assassin's Creed' Movie...

All we know at the moment about the film version of Assassin's Creed is that the release date has been officially moved to sometime in 2016. Earlier this week, a random Internet gentleman made up a rumor that one Robert Downey Jr. had signed on to play Leonardo Da Vinci, who makes an appearance in Assassins Creed II. The problem there is, unlike normal internet rumors that just bounce around message boards, this one was picked up by a MAJOR gaming website who then reported it as if it were actual news. Cue one giant, simultaneous online:

One by one, sites realized that the original source was, how do you say, less than reliable (cough cough full of shit cough cough), and had to back track. Not only does the Da Vinci game timeline not synch up with the planned storyline for the Assassin's Creed film, I think we all know that RDJ has his hands a little fucking full over the next two years. So if he DID sign on for even a small role in a film, it would be massive news.

So again, what DO we know about this movie that is officially two years off?

Honey Buzz ~ A New Life for Peg Entwistle...

Hollywood is one of those rare places, much like the world of literature and art, where you can struggle for fame your entire life, and not find it until after your death. It's one of Los Angeles's great cruelties that no one pays attention to you until you die, and then everyone loves you. No one person personifies this better than actress Peg Entwistle. And while she has been one of Hollywood's most enduring ghost stories since 1932, it seems she will finally be getting the screen time she so desperately craved.

Honey Trailer Buzz ~ 'Big Eyes' Looks So... Normal.

Well, color the Horror Honeys confused. The trailer for Tim Burton's newest, Johnny Depp-free film Big Eyes premiered this week and it is frustratingly... regular. The film tells the true story of Margaret and Walter Keane as their marriage falls apart and they fight in court over which was truly responsible for the hugely popular "big eyed children" paintings of the 60s. The idea of a couple of oddballs, played by Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, painting outsider art that by all accounts SHOULDN'T be popular, but is, is definitely Burton. But something feels... off. Join us, as we debate our feelings about Big Eyes and then watch the trailer for yourself!


A Sci-Fi Honey *Sneak Preview* Review by Katie

The Device (2014)

There’s a new indie sci-fi/horror film making the rounds in the festival circuit later this month, and this Honey caught a sneak preview just for all you #AlienBees looking to devour its extraterrestrial madness when it comes to DVD and VOD on December 16th.  Beaming into your homes this winter is Jeremy Berg’s The Device, a creepy and well-crafted little flick that focuses on the deliberate and unremitting threat of a space-dwelling menace.

From writer/director team John Portanova and Jeremy Berg, whose previous indie effort The Invoking (aka Sader Ridge) was reviewed by our Head Honey at Crypticon Seattle, The Device opens with spouses-to-be Abby and Calvin (Angela DiMarco and David S. Hogan), who are picking up Abby’s sister Rebecca (Kate Alden, who I swear might be Katie Featherston’s twin).  Abby and Rebecca haven’t seen each other in years, their relationship having unraveled since Rebecca experienced a kidnapping and rape at the hands of her crazed boyfriend.  Their mother having recently passed away, the sisters reunite at the family’s rural lakefront cabin to scatter her ashes and end up discovering the wreckage of a craft, a strange spherical object, and repressed memories… like the one where Rebecca’s boyfriend was NOT the one who actually kidnapped and impregnated her all those years ago, if you catch my drift…
