AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Smart, stylish, and nail-bitingly tense, Honeymoon packs more slow-building horror than many bigger-budget productions.

Movie Info

Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon, where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods. Treadaway (CONTROL) and Leslie (HBO's GAME OF THRONES) give captivating leading performances as a couple that takes new love to disturbing depths. With romance slowing giving way to terror, writer/director Leigh Janiak puts her unique stamp on this intimate, chilling thriller. (c) Magnet Releasing

Critic Reviews for Honeymoon

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (8)

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.

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.

I wish the film withheld more information from its audience to raise the overall tension but it's a solid genre pic, made so primarily by two entirely committed performances from its talented leads.

September 12, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A lean, low-budget debut that taps into newlywed anxiety with subtle wit and no small amount of style.

September 11, 2014 | Full Review…

Achieves emotional resonance due to how effectively it joins its source of horror with the stuff of everyday human anxieties.

Audience Reviews for Honeymoon

½

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.

½

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.
