The eerie element of the unknown in the scenic Canadian backwoods and the gradual introduction to marital madness all add up fittingly in writer-director Leigh Janiak’s chilly horror/psychological supernatural romancer ‘Honeymoon’. Janiak’s first directorial debut in this frightfest feature ode to young love descending into lunacy is actually both methodical and compelling. ‘Honeymoon’ cleverly plays with the […]
