Excellent slow-build unnerving horror.
5 October 2014 | by johnbkaramazovSee all my reviews

If you can't sit through a relatively slow-paced movie without losing interest and wanting to play Angry Birds, this might not be the film for you. If however you do have an adult attention span and aren't afraid to engage it, this film will reward your patience many times over.

Utilising a vanishingly small cast remarkably well, the film relies on the believability of the dialogue and the fine acting of the two main characters to draw you ever closer into their seemingly idyllic world. I won't go into any specific detail, but it is a technique that pays off as things become more and more unsettling and a real sense of wrongness begins to pervade what was supposed to be a perfect romantic getaway in the woods.

The film successfully ratchets up the tension over the runtime of 87 minutes, and despite a pretty slow start, delivers a lot by the time of the final credits, leaving you feeling genuinely creeped-out and not entirely sure of what you just witnessed.

Honeymoon is that rare beast, a genuinely well-crafted horror movie. The dialogue is genuinely solid, the acting is good, but it's the perfect pacing that really makes this a must-see for any avid horror fans.
