Critic Reviews for Honeymoon
For those who have ever nursed suspicions that the answer is "not enough," Honeymoon will inspire chills much more bone-deep than the ones provoked by, say, some poltergeist flinging around chairs.
The honeymoon takes place in -- oh, guess -- a deserted cabin in the woods, like a failed Evil Dead.
Co-writer/director Leigh Janiak aims for Lars von Trier's sustained dread, but manages only vague unease.
Leslie and Treadaway extract plenty of existential doubt and distressing emotion from what is essentially a claustrophobic two-hander.
The gory final act can't help but be an explanatory letdown after so much enigmatic fizz, but that's little bother when the rest of Honeymoon delivers a steady dose of newlywed nightmare.
Audience Reviews for Honeymoon
Good horror. I wish the ending was a bit different, but overall I liked it. The couple were convincing and weren't your generic horror movie victims. The gore wasn't over the top, though there were some revolting moments.
A solid psychological horror that takes its time to make us like its characters and care about them before investing in a creepy, intriguing mystery. It is just a pity, though, that it doesn't offer a more consistent payoff and seems to wrap up too all of a sudden.
As a horror it fails abysmally, but the mystery elements actually work quite nicely, and the drama/relationship-y stuff is pulled off well also.
