Storyline

Zombie Honeymoon is a romantic horror film about a young married couple, madly in love, on their honeymoon. One day on the beach, the groom Danny is attacked and killed by a man who rises up out of the water with no explanation, leaps on top of him, and vomits blood into his mouth. Danny is resuscitated ten minutes later, and seems to look and act totally normal. However, his wife Denise finds out that that's not the case at all. It turns out that Danny has become a zombie. However, instead of becoming a "Night Of The Living Dead"-style creature right off the bat, he disintegrates gradually, in a manner akin to cancer or AIDS. He and his wife Denise do their best to cope with his slipping away, not to mention the fact that he can't stop killing and eating people. As their best friends arrive for a weekend visit, she makes him promise her that they're off-limits. He agrees, but finds it more and more difficult to control himself. She hangs in there because he's the love of her life, ... Written by Phyllis Catalano

Barely constitutes a horror film
29 January 2008 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

"Zombie Honeymoon" is rarely able to be called a horror film.

**SPOILERS**

Out on their honeymoon, Danny Zanders, (Graham Sibley) and Denise, (Tracy Coogan) find their vacation dream spot on a sandy beach in the middle of nowhere. As they spend the time together, they witness a strange man wandering nearby and go to help him, only for him to get attacked and taken to a hospital, pronounced dead at the spot. When she gets back, he's alive and crying out for her, only to take a change for the worst and becomes a decomposing mess that attacks and devours everyone he comes across. Forced to help him due to their love for each other, she ends up becoming an unwarranted companion to his flesh-eating urges, as he struggles with his grip on humanity while she struggles with his worsening condition.

The Good News: This one here had very little right. The main one is that there's some really nice blood and gore in here. From the multiple amounts of skin eating, leaving nice messy bites over every part of the body, as well as the dismemberments, blood splatter and the several pools that are generally seen at everyone of the big attack sites makes this one really nice and bloody at times. This is especially true of the last half hour, which is where the blood flows freely, at least a little better than it did before hand. There's also a brutal scene where the zombie first attacks, with a great set-up through the appearance in the water slowly wading ashore leading to a rather violent confrontation which is one of the best scenes in the film. The later confrontation in the bathroom is also really nice, with the suspenseful build-up through the house leading to the gruesome find. The only other thing that works in this one is that the relationship is nicely done, making them seem like a couple right from the start. It's nice to be able to do that, but it does, and these here all comprise the film's good points.

The Bad News: This here is a really flawed film. The main one is that there's no feeling this was a true horror film. While there's a zombie and graphic gore bandied about in the film, this still decides to spend most of the time dealing with the issues that the change brings about. This is dealt with through an innumerable amount of scenes where they're talking about what they're going to do with their lives or how they're going to get through his situation. This takes up the majority of the time in here, leading to one feeling very dull for most of the film, waiting for the violent zombie action to return. The fact is that it also feels like the pairing stays together merely for the film's pretense, as it seems highly unbelievable that something would keep them together, despite the change over. It's really hard to become afraid of the zombie as the situation becomes more unbelievable and romance driven, sucking all the potential out of the film and really driving away all the horror from this. The degree that the romance angle intrudes on the film comes at the expense of it as a horror film, which is what it should've been, as the graphic gore with the sappy romance makes for an uncomfortable feeling because of this. There's also a few areas that don't have any explanations for them. The zombie that first appears is really unexplained, and no explanation is given for how he came to be. The biggest one is the fact that he's pronounced dead in the hospital, yet he gets up later and no one investigates, nor do they for the initial attacks that starts everything. A little mention of what's going on with them would've been fine, but no mention of them once the film gets going, making it highly unlikely and realistic. These here are what really keep the film down.

The Final Verdict: With more drama than horror and barely any of that when it comes on, this is a thoroughly disappointing and barely worthwhile horror film, if it can be called that. The few good moments are hard to shake, but this one is still only for those who can stomach the more dramatic tendencies, as everyone else will be bored with this one.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Language, Nudity and a sex scene
