Indie Gems: Honeymoon
Cabin in the woods? Totally safe.
Bea (Rose Leslie) and Paul (Harry Treadway) are newlyweds who decide to spend their honeymoon in Bea's family secluded lake cabin. It starts off great. They're in love, they joke, they make out everywhere. But then things get weird. Paul finds Bea wandering around in the woods, disoriented. Then she starts acting strange, forgetting things. And it only gets worse.
I applaud this little film for not going in the direction that I thought it would. Sure cabin in the woods films are done time and time again, but this one at least attempts to be different. Leslie and Treadway have amazing chemistry and they really feel like the perfect couple. It makes it all the harder to handle when things start to go south.
The tension builds well and the leads are strong. It's a very creepy film, and while it's not overly gory, it gets pretty damn unsettling.
