Interview: John Mehrmann talks scoring ‘Honeydew’

by Stuart Wright

In his latest interview/podcast, host and screenwriter Stuart Wright talks to John Mehrmann about how he made the skin crawling, atonal at time, film score for Devereux Milburn’s directorial feature debut and a brilliant piece of genre cinema that is Honeydew.

For Sam and Rylie an idyllic camping trip becomes an out of control nightmare. Seeking shelter on a local farm overnight when their car encounters trouble on the road, the couple find themselves at the mercy of an ageing farmer and her peculiar son. The kindness of strangers is always welcome but soon that kindness descends into hallucinogenic fuelled madness as their host begins to show her true colours… when the crops fail and the land is barren there’s only one thing left to eat and that’s a juicy lawn pig.

The Honeydew score is available to stream or buy now on Amazon and Apple Music. Starring Sawyer Spielberg, Malin Barr and the fantastic Barbara Kingsley, Honeydew is out now and is available in the UK on all good digital platforms.
