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
Send this stinking corpse back to the grave from whence it came!
I saw this at the Melbourne International Film Festival a couple of years ago and expectations were high. Why, you ask? BECAUSE IT'S CALLED ZOMBIE HONEYMOON, THAT'S WHY. Unfortunately, a great premise, sharp acting from Graham Sibley as the husband and that awesome title do not a good movie make. David Gebroe is the worst director in the world and the editor was on smack. Unless you enjoy scenes that go on and on and on and on and on, and are pointless besides, this is not the movie for you. Seriously, what the hell was that scene of the wife driving home about? The camera frames her perturbed profile as she drives for what seems like several minutes. What was that in aid of? It adds nothing to the story and slows the already-stately pace down even further. After yet another lengthy shot of her wandering the beach in her bikini we decided that the director must be in love with her lustrous hair and enviable figure. Sorry buddy, but less is more. We don't need umpteen scenes of Mrs Zombie pouting to know that her plight sucks. What really bugs me about Zombie Honeymoon is that it actually DOES have some excellent bits but they lose impact because it's just so bloody ponderous. Some of the killings are well-handled (though I admit it helped that I was desperate for the characters to die so that it would finally end) and there is a good moment where the wife drowns out some horrible sounds by cranking up the volume on the TV. The scene is a succinct way of demonstrating her denial. It's a pity the rest of the movie doesn't follow its lead.
