“Avalon Fast’s debut feature is a low-budget, sun-soaked folk horror film. A masterclass of DIY cinema that doesn’t fall short in achieving stunning shots with a gritty and powerful aesthetic, or in infusing this coming-of-age flick with ingenious storytelling” - Celia Pouzet (Programmer, Fantasia Film Festival)
“Honeycomb is a wild, wandering, wonderous film, a dreamy, abstracted portrait of that liminal space between adolescence and adulthood.” - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas (Author, 1000 Women In Horror, 1895-2018)
In the mundane hours of early summer, five girls sulk in their own boredom waiting for something. When Willow (Sophie Bawks-Smith) stumbles upon a seemingly abandoned cabin, she begins fantasizing about the life she and the girls could have there. Leader (Destini Stewart), Jules (Jillian Frank), Vicky (Mari Geraghty), and Millie (Rowan Wales) pack their bags and whisper a quick goodbye to the life they knew. They flow through open fields, blissfully entering their new sun-soaked world without a thought about the horrors that lie before them.
