Movie Info

A young bride says "until death do us part," but finds that doesn't necessarily put an end to her romance in this offbeat blend of horror, comedy, and romance. Danny (Graham Sibley) and Denise (Tracy Coogan) are a young couple who have just gotten married and head off to a beachside bungalow to celebrate their honeymoon. While enjoying a sunny afternoon on the beach, Danny and Denise's idyllic getaway takes a turn for the worse when a monster rises from the ocean and attacks Danny. The creature spews poison into Danny's mouth, and soon the new husband is dead. But Danny isn't gone for long -- he unexpectedly regains consciousness, but Denise soon learns that her new mate has become a flesh-eating zombie, and that the former vegetarian now has a taste for human beings. But Danny still has one link with the world of the living -- he loves Denise with all his heart, and struggles to keep his monstrous appetites under control for her sake, while Denise remains deeply in love with Danny, and tries to adjust to the strange and monstrous changes taking place in the man she married. Zombie Honeymoon was written and directed by Dave Gebroe, who was inspired to make the film by his sister, a horror film fan who lost her husband in a surfing accident not long after they were wed.

Scores simultaneously as romantic, tragic, grotesque and screamingly funny.

Whether you're looking for a love story with a little gore or a horror movie with a little romance, Zombie Honeymoon will suit your taste.

Oct 8, 2005 | Rating: 3/4

Not quite the campfest its absurd but undeniably catchy title suggests, Zombie Honeymoon is actually an emotionally driven blend of romance, comedy and horror.

Oct 4, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

If you're not up to your hairline with the post-Romero zombie mythology already, you might be able to find room in your heart for Dave Gebroe's indecorously titled Zombie Honeymoon -- it's all about love and death.

Very good performances, heart wrenching story, and genuine characterization...

It comes to life a bit during a protracted, gotta-get-to-80-minutes finale, but by then it's called to mind too many other, better films.

Audience Reviews for Zombie Honeymoon

Independently made zombie tale with a tragi-romance theme about a newly married couple who's short-lived honeymoon is turned into a nightmare when the husband is turned into a flesheater after being attacked at the beach. It's not a film that's been made to show off some gore or yet another homage to "Night of the Living Dead", it's tried something different and it's to be commended for that. The story itself is heart-felt enough but the comedic moments seem out of place. There are a few bloody moments now and then but no gore typically seen in this genre. To be honest though I do prefer your more traditional zombie flick no matter how many times they've been done, but this one is still worthy of a watch.

SO bad. Despite the amazing pretense of a zombie honeymoon, poor quality film, acting, script, etc make this a bust.

Ok now I had heard so many great things about this film, I am on bloody-disgusting.com everyday finding out about new horror films and reading reviews and this was recommended so I saw it in the video store and decided to rent it. I will admit the premise of the film is quite original and intriguing.....that is if it was even remotely done right. I really don't know what sort of cameras they were using to shoot this, but it looked like a neighbours episode with nothing remotely unique, yes the production values are really low because of the budget, but when that happens, you need to have something in the film to make it a cut above the rest...instead, the direction is atrocious, the cinematography doesn't capture any atmosphere at all, the script has pathetic dialogue which is forced by its actors and it also doesn't help when the film is meant to be a romantic comedy as well as horror when it doesn't have any of those elements in the film at all, no decent gore, tension, atmosphere or scares, no romance or chemistry between the leads and no humour at all, unless you want to count the pink paint they used as blood. And also, I think it is great when people attempt to try a different take on zombies, but do you really think that the living dead would have full brain activity throughout the whole film and can talk normally? Not recommended.
