About the Film
Newlyweds Paul and Bea want to spend their honeymoon at an intimate cabin in the woods. But the lovely romantic moments quickly disappear when strange events, such as the appearance of a mysterious light, the unexpected nocturnal disappearance of Bea and her strange return, clearly hurt and now acting differently, are destined to tear them apart.
A chilling sci-fi horror nightmare
Honeymoon starts out like a romance drama with no obvious nods to its real genre but a slow sense of dread starts to kick in when Honeymooners Bea and Paul encounter another couple by the all-but-deserted lake and something about their relationship has a sinister edge to it - but slight enough for it not to register as anything other than odd - but when it transpires that the man is an ex flame of Bea's it becomes an issue with Paul later on as events escalate - and this really is a study in paranoia and that horrible moment when you start to suspect that your life partner might not be exactly be the person you thought you married. Honeymoon, like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Shining or Rosemary's Baby is a classic old-school chiller than builds to a devastating climax that you just won't want to miss!
Two very good British actors play convincing Americans in this thought-provoking chiller. The honeymoon starts well and the newlyweds are clearly very much in love
although the secluded cabin they have chosen to stay in screams Friday13th at you right away. They are asking for something unspeakable to happen to them during their stay.
When it does, it's fairly shocking and a bit disgusting in places if you are squeamish (or
eating as we were!) The acting is flawless from start to finish and I think this makes Honeymoon superior to most horror films. I only discovered, when I googled, that the male lead is one of twins in real life. I thought they were one actor who starred in most
British films made today.
Wouldn't even give it one star.
WORST "film" I have ever sat through.. Don't waste your time!
