OK, I’ll admit I was hooked the second I saw the poster for Honeyspider, the upcoming film from Kenny Caperton, owner of the famed (replica) Myers House in North Carolina, and indie filmmaker Josh Hasty. The film takes place in 1989 on Halloween day and follows college student Jackie Blue (Mariah Brown) as she slowly unravels, all while a mysterious stranger watches over her.
HONEYSPIDER is a cult throwback that pays homage to the classics, but also introduces original ideas to the genre. The film is written and produced by Kenny Caperton (owner of the infamous Myers House NC) and directed by Josh Hasty (‘A Mannequin in Static’) of Black House Capital. The film stars Frank Aard (‘April Fool’s Day’ remake), Joan Schuermeyer (‘Zombieland’ and RZ’s ‘Halloween 2′), Rachel Jeffreys, Samantha Mills (‘Bombshell Bloodbath’) and newcomer Mariah Brown.The film is currently in post-production and is scheduled to hit the festival circuit in search of distribution this Fall.

HONEYSPIDER Plot Synopsis: It’s Halloween day in 1989 and college student Jackie Blue 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!
