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

Every Bite As Good As It Sounds!
26 March 2006 | by twistedhoochSee all my reviews

One part romantic story with charming characters and pathos, one part flesh chewing action. The two genres shouldn't work together particularly well, but they do a very good job of it here. The romance is sweet without being saccharine, the zombie 'snacking' is gory but not repulsive. This genre clashing is balanced by a deft dark comic touch, leading to one of the more interesting zombie efforts of recent years.

Zombie Honeymoon is held together by its balanced tone, and production values on a budget. The acting is of a high standard, particularly Tracy Coogans wife 'Denise', giving the film an emotional resonance lacking some zombie films. The film has an excellent garage / surfer rock soundtrack (one of the credited roles was for 'Psychobilly Adviser'), and excellent sound design - it sounds like their having a lot of fun in the production of this element.

Its main flaw, an unfortunately unavoidable one, is that it doesn't strictly adhere to the zombie rule book (handed down to us by the one they call Romero), making comprimises between the zombie and romance genres (a few more zombies wouldn't have gone amiss), and there are a few unanswered questions lingering on later viewing. Thankfully, the film is enjoyable enough whereby it's not too much of a challenge to overlook these points. This film is destined to be a cult favourite; it isn't for everyone, but its good to know that these two conflicting genres can work together. An accompany piece to Shaun Of The Dead or Bubba Hotep is not unfair to say. Zombie Honeymoon is a genuinely sweet, fun, unique, and interesting film, treading between binary opposite genres skillfully.
