Honeydew Reviews

For me, ‘Honeydew’ relies too much on being wacky and doesn’t have a strong enough story. There are dream-like moments that add a touch of David Lynch to the film but they don’t seem to serve any purpose. Anyone that’s watched a horror film where young people take shelter with a dodgy older family will know exactly where ‘Honeydew’ is going. Even with that foresight though, the film is still a slog to get through with too many repetitive scenes and nothing to propel the plot forward. - Entertainment Focus

Telling a story in which some characters routinely make irrational decisions is fraught with challenges. Milburn has understood that it's better to focus on mood and sensation than on any kind of tidy narrative, and that works in his favour, but the film is still far too slow in its middle stretches without achieving anything extra as a result. - Eye for Film

What do we talk about when we talk about The Texas Chain Saw Massacre? A title synonymous with onscreen violence and one of the most notorious horror films of all time, there's barely any actual bloodshed in Tobe Hooper's backwoods classic. This misunderstanding is why none of the ever-escalating sequels have lived up to that original picture – The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was never really about the gore or the violence. At its heart, it's a film about madness; a gruelling sensory nightmare. And it's this vein of terror that Devereux Milburn's Honeydew taps into. After seeking shelter at the home of an old woman and her weird son, bickering couple Sam (Sawyer Spielberg – son of you-know-who) and Rylie (Malin Barr) begin to experience horrific hallucinations and strange cravings. Who will survive, and what will be left of their minds? An impressive feature debut for director and actor alike, Honeydew is one of the more original backwoods horror films in recent years. It's a trip. - Horror DNA

Honeydew will be released in VOD and digital platforms on April 13, 2021.
