[SXSW '14] ‘Honeymoon’ Trailer’s Eerie Silence Gets Under Your Skin…

honeymoon-1-726x248

World Premiering at the SXSW Film Festival, this trailer strikes a nerve…

The trailer for Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon has been shared with Bloody Disgusting, and it’s a work of art in itself. What’s so interesting is that it doesn’t really offer any plot details, but uses a lack of music and intense sound design to get under the viewer’s skin. This is seriously a remarkable teaser.

Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

The pic stars Rose Leslie, Harry Treadaway, Ben Huber, and Hanna Brown.

Honeymoon premieres at the Austin-based fest on Friday (March 7) at 11:45pm at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz.

    Not bad. Even though not much is shown, its definitely got a Lovely Molly vibe to it….which is a good thing.

    And exactly what was it about that trailer that is suppose to get people interested in seeing that movie? I have no idea, but I will still probably check it out when it comes to netflix out of curiosity.
