The Horror Honeys

Weekly Honey Jam - 'All Tomorrow's Parties'



And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
A hand-me-down dress from who knows where
To all tomorrow's parties
And where will she go, and what shall she do
When midnight comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown and cry behind the door


I've never made any secret of the fact that I can't stand Rob Zombie. But unlike my hatred for Mel Gibson, or Gwyneth Paltrow, my distaste for Zombie isn't based in anything ideological, so I'm occasionally willing to give the Rob-ster a chance. And I'm glad I did so with The Lords of Salem, because it's now one of my favorite films. Despite some overly-artsy missteps and a few too many lingering pans on Sheri Moon's ass, Lords is full of beautifully horrifying shots and unforgettable musical moments. My favorite is the final shot, seen in the gif below, and soundtracked by today's Jam, The Velvet Underground's "All Tomorrow's Parties."


Rob Zombie may suck at remakes, but he knows how to craft a fucking shot. ~RH



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

While no one here is particularly excited about Assassin's Creed, the rest of this week's releases are stellar. A collector's edition of Teen Witch?


A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 11!


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.

'Kong: Skull Island' is a Great Place to Visit!


A New Release Review with Monster Honey Sarah



Kong: Skull Island (2017)

King Kong is a figure that has been a part of cinema for about as long as modern cinema has existed. The 1933 film was the special effects blockbuster of its day, more exploration and adventure than any kind of horror. Since then, Kong fought Godzilla in 1962, climbed the World Trade Center in 1976, and became a three-hour-long epic under Peter Jackson in 2005. Now, in the present day, we have a brand new blockbuster spectacular in Kong: Skull Island, and it is a movie that more than lives up to the legacy.

Weekly Honey Jam - 'Blue Bayou'


I'm going back someday
Come what may
To Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fun
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be



I think we're all in agreement that Lawrence Kasdan's Dreamcatcher is a pretty terrible movie, even when compared to the worst film adaptations made of Stephen King's work. And yet, there are also moments within it, when it becomes a sort of lesser Stand By Me, that it has a hint of undeniable charm. Dreamcatcher also manages to find a fairly unique use for Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou," that will leave the song stuck in your head for days.

Plus, if you ever wanted to create a drinking game involving ass aliens, Dreamcatcher aims to please! (pun intended)



New Release Review: 'The Belko Experiment'


A New Release Review with Horror TV Honey Kat Wells

The Belko Experiment (2017)




(Mild spoilers ahead)

If you took an ethics class in college (and even if you didn’t), you are probably familiar with The Trolley Problem, which has many versions, but goes something like this: A train conductor notices that he is about to plow through five people tied to the track ahead. If he does nothing, those five people will die. If he pulls a lever to switch the trolley to an adjacent track where only one man is standing, only that one man will die. What should he do? Five people will die as a result of his inaction, but can he really justifiably take another man’s life on purpose? The Belko Experiment is an extremely, relentlessly, unapologetically violent meditation on this problem.

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

Hot diggity, what a week for blu-rays! Where do we even start? (Just kidding... It's Firestarter).


A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 10!

‘Frankenstein Theory’ Needs a Stronger Thesis


A Not-So-Classic Film Review with Monster Honey Sarah

The Frankenstein Theory (2013)

All photos courtesy of whoever distributed this film but won't admit to it online
In 1816, a young woman staying by Lake Geneva put pen to paper and created a work of fiction like no other. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is considered by many to be the beginning of modern science-fiction and is unique for being the first non-religious creation story.

But what if it was all real?

Weekly Honey Jam - 'Devil's Diary'


Here in hell's hammock just thinking up deviltry 
Planet-wide panic's a hat that's so old 
I'd rather write about her in my diary 
Could she be mine without selling her soul 
Dirty deeds from a demon seed 
Don't excite me anymore 
Is there one girl 
Just one girl who says 
I'm bigger than Jesus now


It's always a strange experience to absolutely love a band that no one but you seems to remember. For your Revenge Honey, one of those bands is The Caulfields, an alt-rock group who recorded two under-heard albums in the late 90s and then disappeared. I loved them so much, I named my dog Hannah after one of their songs. And while that track is my favorite, "Devil's Diary" was perfect for this week's Honey Jam! So listen, then hit YouTube for a fun time warp back to a simpler decade. ~RH
