Honeydew (2021) - Rotten Tomatoes


Honeydew (2021)



Critic Consensus: Atmospheric horror built on layers of creeping dread, Honeydew finds fresh frights in its familiar setup -- and portends great things for writer-director Devereux Milburn.

Critic Reviews for Honeydew

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (9)

Has an appetite for the grisly, not to mention a thing or two to say about venturing into the middle of nowhere-and taking a bite out of morsels that come from unknown origins.

This listless genre exercise mostly plays like a film-school-spun tribute to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre with some Hansel and Gretel clumsily mixed in, but without a political or philosophical foundation to stand on.

There is such specific, strange, and disturbing imagery here. It is so haunting. You will laugh just to relieve the tension.

April 12, 2021 | Full Review…

A stylised, unsettling horror jaunt that plays interesting variations on an all-too-familiar plot premise.

March 23, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The showiness is finished, so to speak, with a misanthropy likely inspired by the 1974 "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," but miles more callow than that film.

March 11, 2021 | Full Review…

Reviving the spirit of '70s North American rural horror while very much still feeling like a film tapped into out contemporary moment, Honeydew is one of the wildest, weirdest horror films of the year.
