Af­ter the

most adorable DIY wed­ding any hip­ster cou­ple could ever dream up, new­ly­weds Bea ( Rose Les­lie) and Paul ( Harry Tread­away) head to a cabin in the woods for a bud­get hon­ey­moon. At first, it’s great – the cabin is old- fash­ioned but se­cluded, and all they’re re­ally in­ter­ested in is one an­other any­way. Then, one night, Bea sleep­walks out into the for­est, and what she en­coun­ters changes ev­ery­thing…

Hon­ey­moon takes its time es­tab­lish­ing its char­ac­ters. The chem­istry be­tween the two leads is pal­pa­ble and their re­la­tion­ship be­liev­able, if overly cutesy. The ten­sion builds slowly as things get grad­u­ally weirder, then it all pays off sick­en­ingly; you’ll need a strong stom­ach. And though the end­ing won’t an­swer all your ques­tions, emo­tion­ally it’s dev­as­tat­ing.

Two outtakes and a trailer. Sarah Dobbs
