The Horror Honeys

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 30!



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!

Honey Trailer Buzz ~ Is 'Split' Really a Great Idea Right Now?

So… M. Night Shyamalan is making a new movie.

He’s had some good ones. But he's also had some serious misses.

His latest, Split … well, it already looks problematic.

Slasher Honey Jam ~ 'Devil's Spoke'



I might be a part of this
Ripple on water from a lonesome drip
A fallen tree that witness me
I'm alone, him and me.
And then life it's self can not aspire
To have someone be so admired
I threw creation to my king
With the silence broken by a whispered wind.
All of this can be broken
Hold your devil by his spoke and spin him to the ground...


Used in the closing credits of Karyn Kusama's The Invitation, Laura Marling's "Devil's Spoke" is the perfect upbeat, yet dark compliment to a quiet, stylish, and unsettling film. From her album, I Speak Because I Can, Marling is amazing at crafting songs that are beautiful, surprising, and deeply emotional. If you love badass singer-songwriters, then check out Laura Marling immediately. You won't regret it. ~RH

The Honeys on #SDCC16 ~ Kong: Hiddlebum Island

The trailer for Kong: Skull Island was released at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. The movie has quite the all star cast: Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson are all on board for this action-filled monster movie.


And while every Honey is super excited for a remote chance of seeing Hiddlebum again (thank you Crimson Peak and High Rise for these gifts to the world)… that might be all we are excited for.

ABC's of Death 2 1/2 ~ Holy Shit, That's a Lot of Blood.


Short-form horror isn't the easiest type of film to master. ABCs of Death got it mostly wrong. ABCs of Death 2 got it mostly right. One thing that the creators of the series did for 2 was leave the letter "M" open to filmmaker submissions. Apparently, they got tons of amazing movies sent their way...

So why they went with "M is for Masticate" is beyond me, but I digress.

The Honeys on #SDCC16 ~ New Trailer for 'The Exorcist' on Fox

FOX – you are really pissing me off this year.


The Exorcist is one of the greatest horror films of all time. I still love to hear stories of those who went to see it in the theaters, watching people walk out in sheer terror, saying that the movie disturbed them to the core of their being. The creepy shit that happened on the set of the film also adds to its mystery and scare-factor. 

Not to mention – the film is terrifying as hell, even by today’s standards.

So why, why, WHY on earth did anyone feel compelled to make a television show out of it?

The Honeys on #SDCC16 ~ 'Blair Witch'... Yay.

Horror fans at San Diego Comic-Con got quite a surprise this year when attending the advanced screening for upcoming horror film The Woods. Instead of watching an entirely new, creepy-looking film, the audience was surprised (and delighted?) with a screening of Blair Witch, a new installment in The Blair Witch Project franchise.

Blu-ray and DVD Releases for July 26, 2016!

This is a BUSY week for home releases, with a ton of remastered classics (and a few... not-so-classics). Plus, if you were waiting to watch Hardcore Henry at home in case it made you puke? This is your week!

The Honeys on #SDCC16 ~ 'Star Trek: Discovery...' You Rushed It.




Shit, guys. Listen, I'm as excited as the next nerd about Bryan Fuller' s upcoming addition to the Star Trek universe. First, it's Bryan Fuller. Second, it will justify that subscription I got to CBS All Access for the sole purpose of watching Madame Secretary, as the show will air there exclusively after the pilot. And I'm going to stay excited since this was little more than a cartoon teaser rushed out for SDCC.

But guys. Guys. That acronym.
