    Honeymoon 2014

    ★★½ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    Fuck you. Just fuck you.

    There seem to be two types of horror films. The ones that show you the antagonist fairly early on and don't worry about hiding it and then there's the ones that try to hide the antagonist for as long as possible. Honeymoon decides to hide the antagonist for so long that the fucking movie ends before its revealed. Fuck you.

    Aside from that, Honeymoon is a little bit thrilling but a lot bit frustrating. Around…

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
