In 1983, financially struggling college student Samantha Hughes takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse. She slowly realizes her clients harbor a terrifying secret, putting her life in mortal danger.
Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
Young newlyweds Paul and Bea travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.Written by
I am an avid horror fan, it is by far my favorite genre. I like all kinds of horror and don't mind slow paced films at all. However "Honeymoon" was a pretty big letdown. from the trailer and reviews and I was pretty excited to give this a watch, but boy did it fall flat.
The story starts out fairly generic, a couple goes to a cabin in the woods. It quickly turns into something else entirely, and that "something" else really isn't that great. The parts that were obviously suppose to be tense and creepy just didn't do it for me, and the story didn't have much to offer so I just found myself wanting to know what was going on so I could just be done with it.
The acting is by far this movies strong point. The small cast does an excellent job, even though the script is fairly poor.
I feel like as horror fans we are so desperate for new horror we often grasp onto not so good films and try to convince ourselves that they are great. People are praising "Honeymoon" but I'm not entirely sure why, it really just isn't a good movie.
