This actually played in theaters?
7 June 2009 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I have a strong suspicion that "Nightmare Honeymoon" was originally filmed as a made-for-television movie, but someone (for some reason) thought it would be a good idea to release it to theaters first. The tone of the movie is very tame. There's no nudity, the only bad language is the one utterance of the word "damn", a key violent scene happens completely offscreen, and the (limited amount of) violence in the second half of the movie is not that intense.

Still, I have seen good made-for-TV movies from the 70s, and I possibly could have still enjoyed this despite all the censorship restrictions. But I didn't think that it worked overall. Even at around 93 minutes long, the movie feels significantly padded. If they had trimmed the movie to run 75 or so minutes (like many 70s made-for-TV movies), this would have improved the movie significantly. The other big problem is that after the climax, the concluding moment is very unsatisfying. You don't know where the characters are headed after going through what they did.

I'm not saying that this is a "bad" movie - it has some moments of interest. But the execution was somewhat misguided. Perhaps a remake could fix those problems I wrote about.
