Honeymoon (2014)

One of the most anticipated horror movies from 2014 is Honeymoon, a low budget american film that is also Leigh Janiak first motion picture. Like most of the recent horror movies that succeeded in doing a good job, Honeymoon sets itself fully conscious of what made the genre so popular. There are many influences here, particularly from Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, amongst other classics. After their marriage, a young couple travels to a lake house for their honeymoon, when suddenly the girl starts acting strange. Mystery and suspense is probably the most effective approach to the horror genre, and Honeymoon understands it well. The audience will be haunted by the mystery, however the movie stalls too much, and that's its major flaw. The film kicks off originally, but for the last third the need to keep the mystery spawns a sequence of non-consequent scenes that will end up irritating you, and for that Honeymoon is unbalanced. It is a good chiller based on its characters, and a respectful one, but it could perfectly have been a modern horror classic. Unfortunately, it is not.
