Los Angeles, CA – February 22, 2018 –
Family Video is buzzing with ‘BLOOD HONEY’.
TriCoast Entertainment announces that Family Video has recently acquired 830 DVD units of Jeff Kopas (‘An Insignificant Harvey’, ‘Dogasaur’, ‘The Other Side’) and Doug Taylor’s (‘Splice’, ‘A Christmas Horror Story’, ‘Darknet’) newest indie, Canadian psychological thriller, ‘BLOOD HONEY’, as it’s been captivating audiences worldwide since TriCoast Entertainment’s U.S. release in late January 2018.
‘BLOOD HONEY’ is an elevated, psychological thriller that follows a young woman, Jenibel Heath, on her return to her family’s secluded lodge home after 10 years due to her father’s illness.
Stepping inside her family’s lodge for the first time since witnessing her mother’s suicide, Jenibel immediately begins to wrestle with the ghosts from her traumatic childhood past, blurring the lines of reality and fantasy as her mental health continues to deteriorate with hallucinations and breakdowns, turning her family reunion into a living nightmare she cannot escape.
“At the point Jenibel steps back on the island, her family home, everything that follows can be read as either literally true or as an expression of Jenibel’s hallucinations, in other words, as a waking dream […] We can see that Jenibel’s visions involve attempts to come to terms with the dramatic mystery of her mother suicide,” wrote Psychologist / Psychoanalyst, Michael Bader, D.M.H., on “Review of the Film ‘Blood Honey’”.
Stuck inside a living nightmare, ‘BLOOD HONEY’ portrays the genre of women in jeopardy through Jenibel’s struggle to survive, despite her inescapable memories from her traumatic childhood growing stronger and stronger.
“The resulting ambiguities do in fact reflect the difficulties with reality testing that so often afflict victims of early childhood trauma. The achievement of ‘Blood Honey’ is to maintain a sometimes-unpleasant ambiguity and offer a resolution with enough loose ends to leave the viewer wondering,” continued Bader.
‘BLOOD HONEY’ touches on intense and heavy psychological themes – like suicide, repressed memories, and trauma – that has kept the U.S. audiences wanting to shield their eyes out of fear, yet cannot stop watching.
“If a film is good to the extent that it not only entertains but also generates conversation, then ‘Blood Honey’ qualifies. The viewer leaves the film wondering, what was real and what was hallucination? What happened in the real world versus what happens only in Jenibel’s paranoid mind? Psychotherapists will have a field day with it,” wrote Bader.
