Do not fall for it ...

As praised in many of the other reviews the acting was indeed quite good and largely believable if not a bit too effusive in some of the overwritten newlywed dialog interactions. And while the acting, scene direction and tension did rise to an intriguing and potentially stimulating crescendo of sorts halfway through, the expectation of climax or anticipated thematic bridge from drama/romance to horror failed to carry with it any sense of suspense.

That the film failed to generate horror of any kind is my sole problem with it. Themes such as a person you love suddenly becoming someone else can evoke psychological terror and qualify for the genre, however, here the pending horror reveal is disguised as romantic suspense until a moment too late for the viewer to reap thrills and chills.

Science fiction horror is a favorite genre of mine, but 'Honeymoon' skips science of any kind and trades horror for a moment of gooey biological shock left open to far too many interpretations.

Lack of foreshadowing also contributes to my rating. "Rest your womb," says one character to another. Newlyweds not ready to discuss having children, Killing frogs, an old boyfriend acting strangely to his wife who appears a victim of domestic abuse, fear of deep water, hiding messages inside a hollow effigy--all possible clues in deciphering the plot, or so this viewer had presumed.

But none of the above sensibly related to the reveal. In a seemingly innocent but presumably deceptively clever line of dialog one character asks another if he has ever killed anything with his bare hands. Foreshadowing? Apparently, no.

Much like the often discussed but never caught fish in the lake, the writer failed to stock this plot with sensible clues to the reveal.

Nice

I saw this at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival, more or less by chance. I went to the theater to attend a reading of George R.R. Martin (which was great), and this movie started just shortly afterward. I was surprised and pleased to see that the leading actress was one of the actresses of Game of Thrones, where she played Ygritte the wildling.

In Honeymoon she could show a more mellow side.

I am not quite sure why I liked this film so much. It is rather slow, normally I get bored easily. One point was probably the realism of the thing (before the horror starts I mean). This thanks to the excellent acting and good dialogue. And also the good use of the surroundings. Another point is that the story line is more or less original and does not follow one of the numerous stereotypes in horror film making.

Its horror is more psychological, gorehounds will probably be bored.

The negative: Making a good ending for a movie is one of the hardest things. And I must say, that I did not find it all too satisfying in this case.

But apart from that I would really recommend this movie.
