This August Honey can be seen starring opposite Jeri Ryan in "Men Cry Bullets". 

As with her short films, Tamara Hernandez's first feature, MEN CRY BULLETS, received much praise for its dynamic, funny and unpredictable female characters that are said to subvert traditional feminine roles.

Described as "a wickedly funny cross between John Waters and R.W. Fassbinder" and a "stylistic heir to Russ Meyer" this wildly shot film, with its vibrant color scheme, is a unique dark comedy about a truly disturbed love triangle and one unlucky pig.

as Jeri Ryan stands by, in "Men Cry Bullets"

Enter the strange world of Billy, (Steven Nelson), an innocent young male ingenue, imprisoned by the memories of his past, who tries to redeem himself by performing on stage in drag each night as his mother in a seedy freak club.  Unfortunately, one night his act is ruined in a drunken brawl by an insane cigar smoking writer named Gloria (Honey Lauren).  Instantly drawn to her, Billy makes the mistake of falling in love with this sexy and sadistic older woman who rapes and abuses him until he submits to her every whim.  But Gloria's worst behaviour doesn't kick in until her disgustingly beautiful debutante cousin (Jeri Ryan) arrives for a visit and decides to steal Billy away.

So begins a twisted psycho-sexual roller coaster ride through three crazy minds filled with hysterically funny dialogue and violent emotions that result in a depraved meage a trois, the brutal butchering of a beloved pet, and a spontaneous cold blooded murder.

Winner of six major festival awards, including Grand Prizes at South by Southwest, Avignon, and the Audience Choice Award at Chicago Underground.
