In the psychological thriller film "Blood Honey" from 2017, Shenae Grimes-Beech plays the lead character, a young woman named Jenibel who inherits her family's remote island beekeeping business after her father passes away. However, Jenibel's return to the isolated island also causes her to confront traumatic memories from her past involving her controlling father and unstable brother.

As she attempts to manage the business with the help of her father's former employee, played by Gil Bellows, Jenibel also starts to unravel dark family secrets related to a mysterious land dispute and the disappearance of her grandfather. Her relationships with her brother, played by Kenneth Mitchell, and her childhood friend, played by Krystal Hope Nausbaum, become increasingly strained as she tries to uncover the truth and protect herself and the island's honeybees.

"Blood Honey" is a slow-burning, atmospheric film that relies heavily on its location and eerie score to create a sense of unease and isolation. The stunning beauty of the island's natural landscape is contrasted with the sense of unease that permeates the film, adding an underlying tension to even the most mundane scenes. Shenae Grimes-Beech delivers a nuanced performance as Jenibel, a character who is both vulnerable and determined, haunted by her past but also determined to protect herself and those she cares about. Her chemistry with Gil Bellows' character is also a highlight of the film, providing a much-needed source of stability and support amidst the escalating chaos.

The film's plot can be somewhat convoluted at times, with numerous flashbacks and dream sequences that can be difficult to interpret, but this only adds to the overall feeling of disorientation and unease. The film's climax is both shocking and satisfying, providing closure to many of the film's mysteries while also leaving some questions unanswered.

Overall, "Blood Honey" is a haunting and suspenseful film that stays with you long after the credits roll. It explores complex themes related to family dynamics, trauma, and the human psyche with sensitivity and nuance, making it a must-see for fans of psychological thrillers.

Blood Honey is a 2018 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 23 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.2.
