Movie Review

By Vivvy Nappier


“Honeymoon” is a 2014 horror movie directed by Leigh Janiak, Written by Phil Graziadei & Leigh Janiak and, produced by Patrick Baker & Esme Howard. It stars Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful) as a newly wedded couple who encounter several bizarre events while away on their honeymoon.


Bea (Rose Leslie) and Paul (Harry Treadaway) decides to go to a remote Cabin in the forest for their honeymoon. A couple of nights into their getaway, Bea encounters a childhood friend but something seems strange about his relationship with his wife. That night, Paul awakens to find Bea missing. He finds her in the forest, she claims she was sleep walking. Following the incident, Bea  starts having memory loss and a strange reaction to a supposed insect bite which leads to a series of horror.



Honeymoon was a very promising horror flick, one that I truly enjoyed from the beginning to almost the ending… almost because the ending was a bit of a let down for me. I was left hanging, disappointed  and wanting something much more worthy of an ending for such an amazing buildup.

To sum it up, the ending made me feel like they ran out of ideas to conclude the story on what was really happening… or worried it might bear too much resemblance (which it indirectly did) to Robin Cook’s “Invasion” meets “Species”.  Sadly they decided to come up with a last minute ending which was delivered poorly. With that being said, I definitely enjoyed the pacing and setting of Honeymoon much more.

Every actor was fantastic in this movie. They all brought their A game and gave such a natural vibe, I didn’t feel like I was watching actors “act” out a movie for me. It had a nice drama setting into series of havoc like “The Babadook” and “The Invitation”. If this is the new style to millennial horror then I am loving it 100%.

There were some scenes that were left hanging. Some stories started but were never concluded.  It made me feel like they shouldn’t have dug into those in the first place.

Overall, I was satisfied with “Honeymoon” and definitely recommend it for a one time watch!

    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
