Dax (Robbie Kay), Krill (Jacob Batalon) and Sam (Seychelle Gabriel) are absolutely excited: Blood Fest – the mega fun fair slash fan convention about all things horror is coming to their town. And they know that they have to be there. But Dax’ father (Tate Donovan) is dead-set against it, as he is against everything horror-related since Dax’ mother was killed. Dax manages to go anyway, but once there, it turns out that something sinister is going on at Blood Fest.

Blood Fest is no masterpiece, but it’s fun and entertaining. Horror movie fans will feel a little like watching a bobble head with all the nods the film throws at them and that makes most of its charm. I enjoyed it.

Maria (Kat Graham) was just released from juvie and released into foster care. Taking care of her is Connie (Lonette McKee) who owns a dance studio, where Maria works off her community service and tries to keep herself out of trouble.

Maria declines, joins up with Brandon (Randy Wayne) and his crew and they try to beat the 718s at a dance battle.

Oh boy. Honey 2 might be, officially, the worst dance film in the history of dance films (which is saying a lot in a genre that has one and a half storylines and usually puts dancing abilities way over acting abilities). It is certainly the worst dance film I’ve ever seen.
