INTERVIEWS - our genre interviews reach from indie to major studio releases and feature directors, authors, actors, genre personalities and content creators from all corners of the horror world. Honey Interviews take place one-to-one at film festivals and press junkets and are featured in Belladonna Magazine, on our podcast, and on our website.

REVIEWS - Boasting more than just the general approach to film review, the Honeys are “students of horror,” and we take our job seriously, offering unbiased reviews and opinions that are colored not just by our love of the genre, but a wealth of knowledge and experience in film and television.

BELLADONNA HORROR MAGAZINE - the FIRST horror magazine staffed, designed, written and published by women, Belladonna is a new voice for horror in a market that is rapidly seeing its decline. In an age where literally anyone can have a blog or review site, Belladonna elevates the voices of our writers and presents new opportunities for female genre writers to be showcased. Likewise, our covers and features focus on women working in the genre including directors, actors, producers, and more.

HONEY RADIO - Now in its 4th Season, Honey Radio is a place where the Honeys come together to talk about the horror genre. Whether it be a special edition covering our favorite films or sub-genre, or showcasing a rising indie talent, our podcast is over 100 episodes strong and can be found on iTunes.
