There’s a certain tradition of “hillbilly horror” that has created such masterful horror films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of A Thousand Corpses, and many, many more. Honeydew certainly belongs in this echelon. Devereux Milburn created a creepy family unit with interesting mythology that is extremely fascinating. The difference between this film and a lot of the others in its group? Location. Instead of Texas or Alabama or wherever else these films usually take place, the setting of Honeydew is rural New England, which is usually presented as a most civilized region. Seeing some weirdos out in the woods in somewhere other than the south or midwest is really refreshing. I was happy to talk to Devereux Milburn about his creation, which has been one of my favorite horror offerings of the year so far.
