Freestyle Digital Media is releasing Max Strand’s new thriller, Goodbye Honey, via cable and digital HD beginning May 11. Strand directs from a script he wrote and produced with Todd Rawiszer, with Josh Michaels producing, and with a cast that includes Pamela Jayne Morgan (Just Say Goodbye) and Juliette Alice Gobin (Look At Me).
Dawn, a truck driver, pulls into a state park to get some sleep when she is ambushed by Phoebe, a young woman who claims she is fleeing from an abductor. Dawn is wary of Phoebe’s story, leading to a struggle that leaves her phone broken, the keys missing, and nothing but darkness between them and help. As the night progresses, it becomes clear they are not alone. Bonding over a shared history of trauma, Dawn and Phoebe realize they must learn to trust each other if they want to survive a night full of unexpected twists and violent turns.
Goodbye Honeyhad its virtual world premiere at Dances With Films in Los Angeles last year before screening around the country. Screenings continued for audiences at the Garden State Film Festival, earning Best Thriller Feature, Best Actress for Morgan and and Best Supporting Actor for Soule; at Nightmares Film Festival winning Best Lead Performance for Gobin; and then winning Best Actress for Morgan at NOLA Horror Film Festival.
Also starring are Peyton Michelle Edwards (Weekenders), Paul C. Kelly (Driftwood), and Rafe Soule (Menagerie).
Of the upcoming release, Strand shared, “It was an incredible experience for Todd and I to work with such an unbelievably passionate and talented cast & crew on our first feature film Goodbye Honey. For this journey to culminate in a 96 minute intense thriller, with two strong female lead characters, is so amazing and I couldn’t be prouder. I hope the audience connects with the characters not only for being the badass, strong women they are, but also for being good Samaritans”.
