“The Honor Farm” will bring a blend of horror and comedy to South by Southwest. The film marks the narrative feature directorial debut of Karen Skloss, who has helmed various shorts and documentaries, and stars NBC’s “Revolution” alum Olivia Applegate in the lead role of Lucy.
Here is the film’s synopsis: “When Lucy’s prom night falls apart, she finds herself jumping into a hearse headed for a psychedelic party in the woods. Looking for a thrill, the party wanders deeper into the forest, to a haunted and abandoned prison work farm. A secret wish and a summoning of the dead sends the group on a mind-bending trip into a dangerous trap.”
The story was written by Skloss alongside Jay Tonne Jr. and Jasmine Skloss Harrison. The cast includes Louis Hunter, Dora Madison, Liam Aiken, Katie Folger, Michael Eric Reid, Will Brittain, Mackenzie Astin, Josephine McAdam and Christina Parrish.
“The Honor Farm” will have its world premiere on Saturday, March 11, at Stateside Theatre during SXSW. Watch the exclusive clip below.
