Honeyspider Review


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...

Honeyspider (2014) is an American thriller horror movie that was filmed in several locations in Ohio and North Carolina. Director, cinematographer, producer, actor and editor Josh Hasty (A Mannequin in Static (2009), Porcelain Girl Love Note (2011), Judith: The Night She Stayed Home (2010)) did an incredible job. Honeyspider was his fifth movie to direct, and he did a phenomenal job at it. I would love to see more movie from Josh as he has many talents under his belt.

Honeyspider revolves around Jackie Blue (Mariah Brown) who is a college student in 1989 with many problems including keeping up her grades, unhappy parents going through a divorce, working and a creep professor. Jackie is sure that Professor Lynch (Frank J. Aard - April Fool’s Day (2008), Horror Story (1997), Radioland Murders (1994)) is up to no good. She is about to turn 21 years old on Halloween and plans on staying in to finish her assignments instead of celebrating/partying with her friends. Her friends persuaded her to go to the college campus annual Monster Mash party after she finishes working the late shift at the movie theater. Jackie started to have visions of abnormal symbols and ignored it after some time went by. Jackie soon started seeing huge tarantulas that appeared from nowhere and is everywhere she is. She went to work, and the tarantulas did not stop appearing, but something more terrifying is about to happen. A masked killer is slashing people in the movie theater and now has his eyes on Jackie. Will Jackie survive at the hands of this mysterious killer? Everyone around Jackie is being murdered, and she cannot stop her hallucinations of the tarantulas - is she really having hallucinations or are they real?

Honeyspider is the type of movie that lets the audience/viewers think for themselves instead of giving them all the answers. You can draw your own conclusions - some might say these are plot holes, and I cannot argue there. The music, sound, set, lighting effects, design, and cast were all good. I also love the cover art and the appeal it has - unique it was. I usually like everything to be answered in a movie for me, but I am liking the fact that I get to determine what happened. Yes, I might be contradicting what I just said but there was way too many unanswered questions.
