Plot:

Lilli (Abbey Heller) marries sculptor Emile Duvre (Robert Parsons) and moves into his large mansion in Florida. However, she soon starts receiving threatening phone calls and narrowly escapes injury in a series of accidents…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

Honeymoon marks the lone shot at directing for Irwin Meyer, who plowed greener pastures as a producer of made-for-TV movies (e.g., 1998’s exclamation-theirs Legion of Fire: Killer Ants!), and one can see why. Still, it’s not a vacuum of entertainment. Where else — in today’s society, especially — will one hear a woman speak the line “Yes, but he’s just a minor sex maniac” as a point of justification?” Flick Attack

“Some beatniks, belly dancing, ketchup blood and a midget can’t stop it dragging. One for fans of Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966).” DF Video Diary, Letterboxd

“It’s a cheap low budget horror movie but the acting is pretty decent, the story is pretty good and the characters are fairly interesting. It kind of ends up being A Bucket of Blood without the humor.” James, Letterboxed

Emile: “Shut up! You could turn snow black!”
