Sawyer Spielberg, Malin Barr and Barbara Kingsley star; the synopsis: “HONEYDEW tells the story of a young couple [Spielberg and Barr] who are forced to seek shelter in the home of an aging farmer [Kingsley] and her peculiar son, when they suddenly begin having strange cravings and hallucinations taking them down a rabbit hole of the bizarre.” To find out more about what to expect from HONEYDEW, see our review here.
Meanwhile, the horror omnibus PHOBIAS will arrive in theaters and VOD/digital platforms this spring, with the specific date to be announced. The segments were directed by Jess Varley, Joe Sill (STRAY), Maritte Go, Camilla Belle (star of 2006’s WHEN A STRANGER CALLS) and Chris von Hoffman (MONSTER PARTY); they also scripted, along with Broderick Engelhard. The cast includes Leonardo Nam, Hana Mae Lee, Steve Park and singer Macy Gray; the synopsis: “Five dangerous patients, suffering from extreme phobias at a government testing facility, are put to the ultimate test under the supervision of a crazed doctor and his quest to weaponize fear.” Look for more on PHOBIAS soon.
