HONEYSPIDER takes place in 1989 on Halloween day and follows college student Jackie Blue as she slowly unravels, all while a mysterious stranger watches over her every move. Soon she finds herself helplessly trapped like prey in a spider’s web, and all she can do is try to survive the night!
HONEYSPIDER is written and produced by Kenny Caperton (owner of the infamous Myers House NC) and directed by Josh Hasty (‘A Mannequin in Static’) of Paramount Scope. 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.
Billy Corgan of the iconic rock band The Smashing Pumpkins has generously given the filmmakers the rights to use one of his early SP tracks entitled “Honeyspider,” which inspired the name of the movie. The film will also feature music from legendary music producer and singer songwriter Gary S. Paxton, who arranged and produced the original Bobby (Boris) Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers “Monster Mash” album.
In addition to the double feature screenings, HONEYSPIDER will also be hitting the film festival circuit in search of distribution later this Fall.
