We are thrilled to hear that the 2014 independent horror film Honeyspider (read our review), set on Halloween night in 1989, has secured a worldwide distribution deal with Maxim Media, meaning you all should soon be able to check out this fun little throwback for yourselves very soon.
Honeyspider is expected to hit DVD this fall, just in time for Halloween. We will have news of the official release date as soon as it is confirmed.
Written and produced by Kenny Caperton (owner of the infamous Myers House NC) and directed by Josh Hasty (A Mannequin in Static), Honeyspider stars Frank Aard (April Fool’s Day remake), Joan Schuermeyer (Zombieland and RZ’s Halloween II), Rachel Jeffreys, Samantha Mills (Bombshell Bloodbath) and newcomer Mariah Brown.
It’s Halloween day in 1989 and college student Jackie Blue (Mariah Brown) wants to enjoy a quiet birthday in the midst of a chaotic semester at school. Her friend Amber has other ideas and persuades Jackie to come to the annual Halloween party on campus after her shift at the local movie theater.
As the night unfolds, it becomes apparent that Jackie will get more excitement than she bargained for on her birthday this year. The murder that plays out on the silver screen becomes an ominous parallel to reality, as Jackie falls under a strange spell while everyone around her is turning up dead.
All the while, a mysterious stranger watches over Jackie’s every move as she succumbs to hallucinations and slowly unravels. Jackie finds herself helplessly trapped like prey in a spider’s web, and all she can do is try to survive the night!
