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 saw this at the Neuchâtel 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.
