HONEYSPIDER will feature music from legendary music producer and singer songwriter Gary S. Paxton! Gary has written thousands of songs since the 1950s and has sold millions of records in multiple genres of music throughout his 60+ year career. Gary arranged and produced the original Bobby (Boris) Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers “MONSTER MASH” album! Gary is truly a pioneer in the music industry and it is an honor to have some of his tunes in Honeyspider, including his classic Halloween track “Spooky Movies!” Get ready everyone, because the haunting season draws closer!
We want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped us out this past weekend in Ohio. We got all of our last pick-up and punch in shots and couldn’t be happier with the results. Kenny is back in the N.C. and I’ve got a hard drive full of new footage to cut. So thank you to every single person (there’s a TON) who joined the team and made this crazy idea come to life. We couldn’t have done it without you. As always, thank you all for the support and please continue to help us spread the word. Before you know it, you’ll be settling down with a bowl of popcorn and taking in all that is HONEYSPIDER! We’ll see you soon!

…here is a fun behind-the-scenes picture from this past weekend’s shoot. The footage looks amazing – I can’t believe we’re almost done!
I’m flying out to Ohio this week to meet up with Josh and go over the first rough cut of HONEYSPIDER! We also have a couple last pick-up shots to get and then we can move into the final stages of post-production. WE’RE GETTING CLOSE! Our plan is to have the film done by the end of August and then hit the film festival circuit in search of distribution this Fall. We’re also planning to have premiere screenings of the film in North Carolina and Ohio hopefully in October. Thanks again for the support everyone and please keep spreading the word!
I’m sure some of you have read this news from the Fangoria exclusive, but I wanted to reiterate and elaborate on this bodacious news! Billy Corgan of the iconic rock band The Smashing Pumpkins has generously given us the rights to use one of his early SP tracks entitled “Honeyspider,” which inspired the name of the film. I am a HUGE SP fan and this film wouldn’t be what it is without his music. Billy took the time out to support our indie film project, while in the middle of recording 2 new Smashing Pumpkins albums (“Monuments to an Elegy” and “Day for Night”), along with releasing his experimental album “AEGEA,” writing a memoir and working on re-issues of the entire SP music catalog.
We are truly grateful for his contribution. The song will play over the end titles of the film – listen to the track HERE and be sure to check out the Fangoria exclusive HERE.
