The film's title is somewhat of a misnomer as the couple played by Gilda Radner and Gene Wilder are not newly-weds on a honeymoon but are about to be married. However, the name of the episode broadcast on radio during the movie was called "Haunted Honeymoon".
In her 1989 book "It's Always Something", actress Gilda Radner said of this film, "On July 26 , Haunted Honeymoon (1986) opened nationwide. It was a bomb. One month of publicity and the movie was only in the theaters for a week - a box-office disaster".
