About the Film

The Honeymoon

79 min. cult thriller
Canada, 2014
Director: Rob Rowatt


A young couple are thrust into a savage wasteland when they trek deep into the wilderness on a honeymoon canoe trip. As they set up camp and party on an isolated lake, Nicole hears a car approaching down an abandoned logging road. When she makes the fatal mistake of trespassing to take a closer look at their neighbours, the newlyweds become targets in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. The Honeymoon is “an intense no-budget thriller” with “surprising plot twists” (Bill Brownstein, The Montreal Gazette). Winner of two Best Feature Film awards, The Honeymoon was shot in the woods of Ontario with a skeleton crew and no access to electricity or running water.
