Honeymoon Review


A newlywed couple finds their lake-country honeymoon descend into chaos after Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night.

Honeymoon (2014) is an American indie horror movie that was filmed in North Carolina, USA. First-time director and co-writer Leigh Janiak did a good job executing this movie with no experience at all. This movie contains sexual content, violence, suspense, intense thrills, bad language, gory images, invasion of a females body and an icky creature.

The movie is about Bea ( Rose Leslie - Game of Thrones (2011), Now Is Good (2012), Sticky Notes (2015)) and Paul (Harry Treadaway - Control (2007), City of Ember (2008), Fish Tank (2009), The Lone Ranger (2013)) who are a newly married couple. They are heading to their honeymoon that is secluded from the world in a forest. They plan to spend some quality romantic time without interruptions in their outdated cabin. Bae meets one of her childhood friends in an old restaurant they were having dinner at in town. The friend did not know they knew each other at first and acted strangely while trying to put Bae and her husband out of the restaurant. After a few events, Bae goes missing and Paul later finds her naked in the woods with no clue as to how she got there. Bae is now strange, odd, distant and just not herself after her naked incident in the woods. Paul starts experiencing/noticing strange happenings around the house. Bae did a strange, bizarre thing to herself and shocked the hell out of Paul when he knocked the door open. Paul then tied her to the bed and discovered his wife is really and truly not herself and discovers a hideous creature in her…

The movie is really interesting at parts and also boring at the same time - yes my thoughts on this movie are confusing. The movie was not really scary at all, and there is nothing terrifying about it except the creature that was pulled out of one of Bae’s body parts. It is gross when he tied her to the bed and pulled the horrifying creature thing out of her. I could not believe how the movie ended so it was a total surprise which is a bonus for me. It was a surprise, but I feel the ending could have contained more details as to why she is walking away with a female. I would recommend his movie to friends because this director need to be recognized. He used a handful of actors and pulled off a movie that is better than experienced directors. The actors did a wonderful job with their parts.
