    I wish the film withheld more information from its audience to raise the overall tension but it’s a solid genre pic, made so primarily by two entirely committed performances from its talented leads.

    The gory final act can't help but be an explanatory letdown after so much enigmatic fizz, but that's little bother when the rest of "Honeymoon" delivers a steady dose of newlywed nightmare.

    While its ending descends into standard horror tropes that fail to completely satisfy its promise, the film nevertheless achieves emotional resonance due to how effectively it joins its source of horror with the stuff of everyday human anxieties.

    Honeymoon is a microbudgeted horror movie that achieves some genuinely shivery moments.

    It waffles between dramatizing youthful self-absorption and succumbing to it, and this tonal instability comes to effectively mirror the domestic discord that's revealed to be its real subject.

    A tense, two-piece horror with serious kick.

    The thematic weight drags down the tension, yet just when it seems Janiak has forgotten the scares she pulls off a creepy finale.

It's really disturbing and leaves that deliciously bitter taste in your mouth along with a general feeling of unease. It's also one of those rare films that doesn't try to lay everything out for you but doesn't fall into obscurity either in an attempt to seem deep. Brilliant performances from both of the leads, who are relatively new faces. Just goes to show how you don't need a huge budget when you have a great script, an original horror concept and a couple of solid actors. This is a horror classic which will achieve cult status I think Expand

Rose Leslie is absolutely fantastic in the lead role, and Harry Treadaway does a nice job in supporting her. Expand

In that perspective, it was a decent movie, because within the limits everything was done nicely. In fact, it was a minimal cast movie set in an isolated cabin in the woods. A simple story that is like the title, it is about a newly married couple's honeymoon. All sets off nicely to them until strange events begin to follow one after another. How the couple manages to come off of it, or do they is the rest.

    I don't know others, but like I said it was not a bad movie to me. Whatever happened, it just kept me engaged throughout, because of the uptight plot. Though, it raises some questions about the events that takes place in the movie and makes to have your own imagination. In fact, my opinion in the begging was 'big foot', later very quickly I understood what it's about. The writer's notion was also the same, leaving blank space to fill by the viewers with their creative prediction.

    The most of the answers answered or going to be answered are merely the same (I think). For those who won't get it, will suffer nothing except think they wasted time. The rest will probably want a sequel for a proper and further explanation. Especially a couple of dialogues made me think that way. But, I don't think so there will be one, it will stay a mystery as of now forever, if I'm not wrong. Not a scary movie nor actual violence, but the suspense was the movie's strong hold. If you're looking for that type, you can give it a try other than blood gore and killings.

I expected a bit more from the performances as the two love bird characters seemed a bit corny in contrast to actually being developed which was clearly the goal. I was annoyed by all the smiling and kissing, but the at least the movie gradually becomes more interesting as it progresses. Expand
