EFM: Yellow Veil Pictures Take Worldwide Sales Rights to Rural-Nightmare HONEYDEW
NY/LA-based arthouse genre sales company Yellow Veil Pictures have acquired world sales rights on HONEYDEW from director Devereux Milburn and producers Dan Kennedy and Alan Pierson. Yellow Veil will begin pre-sales at this month’s European Film Market.
The film stars Sawyer Spielberg in his introductory role, alongside Malin Barr and Barbara Kingsley. HONEYDEW is a feverish horror film set in rural New England, where strange cravings and hallucinations befall a young couple after seeking shelter in the home of an aging farmer and her peculiar son.
Yellow Veil Pictures Co-Founder Justin Timms said “We are thrilled to introduce Devereux Milburn’s vision to the market at this year’s EFM. With shades of De Palma’s frenetic editing and sound design brought into a modern context, Honeydew immerses you in a nightmare that is sure to satisfy all cravings for a fresh, stylish backwoods horror.”
Director Devereux Milburn said “I’m so excited to team up with YVP, and for the opportunity to find a wider audience for this modern day Hansel and Gretel story. This piece, in all of its darkness and absurdity, is one that is truly close to my heart and reflective of a real human dilemma, and I can’t wait for people to eat it up.”
