This film is a feverish horror film set in rural New England, where strange cravings and hallucinations befall a young couple after seeking shelter in the home of an aging farmer and her peculiar son.
Devereux Milburn wrote and directed the film. Dan Kennedy and Alan Pierson produced.
Yellow Veil Pictures Co-Founder Justin Timms says:
“We are thrilled to introduce Devereux Milburn’s vision to the market at this year’s EFM. With shades of De Palma’s frenetic editing and sound design brought into a modern context, Honeydew immerses you in a nightmare that is sure to satisfy all cravings for a fresh, stylish backwoods horror.”
Director Devereux Milburn adds:
“I’m so excited to team up with YVP, and for the opportunity to find a wider audience for this modern day Hansel and Gretel story. This piece, in all of its darkness and absurdity, is one that is truly close to my heart and reflective of a real human dilemma, and I can’t wait for people to eat it up.”
