You must be starving? Got impulsive strange cravings, then you better watch the UK Trailer for indie Horror Honeydew. Fall into that rabbit hole of hallucinatory bizarreness and feed that craving!
The film marks the directorial feature debut for Devereux Milburn. It’s not the only debut, it’s the acting debut for Sawyer Spielberg , yes folks Steven Spielberg‘s son! Like many horrors this film comes with some buzz from those festivals it played in 2020 (Tribeca and Nightstream Film Festivals). It looks totally bonkers!
The film follows a young couple who are forced to seek shelter at an ageing farmer’s home. Everything seems find at first, things get oddly peculiar when the young couple gets strange cravings.
For Sam and Rylie an idyllic camping trip becomes an out of control nightmare. Seeking shelter on a local farm overnight when their car encounters trouble on the road, the couple find themselves at the mercy of an ageing farmer and her peculiar son. The kindness of strangers is always welcome but soon that kindness descends into hallucinogenic fuelled madness as their host begins to show her true colours… when the crops fail and the land is barren there’s only one thing left to eat and that’s a juicy lawn pig.
The film also stars Malin Barr, Barbara Kingsley, Stephen D’Ambrose, and Jamie Bradley.
Honeydew will be released by Signature Entertainment in the UK and Ireland on 29th March on Digital Platforms.
