Honeymoon (2014)★★★★☆


In addition to scary movies, I really like ice cream. In particular, I really like fancy small batch ice cream. Like these Double Hazelnut or Brown Butter Plum flavors made by a brand called Honeymoon. If you ever get a chance to try this brand, go for it. So far I like what I’ve tasted.

So I watched this movie partly because I’ve been eating a lot of Honeymoon ice cream, and partly because I remembered I’d liked it before. And I still liked it now. It’s very well done and the pacing is excellent.

It’s got a very minimalist feel to it, which is nice. The actors are relatively unknown but totally believable, which is what makes the movie really creepy. The character development works so well that you feel attached to Bea and Paul and so the tension builds and builds.

And in this movie, the payoff is satisfying. (Mild spoiler alert) It’s not a happy ending by any means, but it was complete and not over the top or drawn out. Overall, this movie is not too graphic except for a couple of particularly disturbing scenes, but it is good and creepy throughout. I’d recommend it, but only if you already like being creeped out.
