Honeymoon. (2014) Film Review. Directed by Leigh Janiak. Distributed byMagnolia Pictures.
This is really an interesting film,an American film with really only two actors in the whole movie,but keeping you enthralled throughout. The fact the two leads Are actually British actors,in which I didn't know till I had researched the film afterwards. Starring the very lovely,and incredibly pretty Rose Leslie, a Sctotish Actress,who is known in Game Of Thrones,and Harry Treadaway who is known from his character work on the TV series Penny Dreadful.
Bea's behaviour becomes so unlike her, Paul becomes to think that this is is not the same woman he married. We have a film about the changes in a relationship,and do we really know that other person that well. We also have a film that is a supernatural film,about a Woman's consciousness,being taken away from her,and being replaced with a lifeless drone,with nothing of the original person left.
We do have this element of the film thrust upon us quite early on in the film,and would have been better to have Bea's health and mind deteriorate slower,with the changes not being so obvious,so soon. But the director handles the pace of the film perfectly,and we do have scenes of genuine tension,and scenes to confuse the viewer, into an uneasiness of confusion,and not quite knowing exactly what is going on.
A very intelligent psychological thriller,not a Horror,or even a Sci Fi film,but a film about do we really know each other that well,and could we spot small differences in our loved ones personality's .
A much recommended film,that is acted absolutely wonderful by both the leads,it is an eerie film,with some tension, a few gross out scenes,which I thought was not needed,including vaginal bleeding,and mutilation,I think only put in to create a Horror moment,apart from that it is a very eerie,scary film,without any needs for jump scares,just great old fashioned filmmaking,creating tension,and uneasiness.
