Honeymoon ★★½

Leigh Janiak's debut feature takes its risks in using some of the more obvious horror tropes, though it plays more like an Antichrist without Von Trier's cod philosophical bullshit. That's a good thing, as in its best moments, the awareness that something is truly, horribly amiss between newlyweds Bea (Rose Leslie) and Paul (Harry Treadaway) cultivates a tense, grim atmosphere. But the script could have used a better edit to solve some serious problems in plot logic and character behaviour that renders the idea as a whole, as interesting as it is, fundamentally flawed.
