Storyline

Jorge, an eccentric and lonely medical doctor, kidnaps Isabel, his neighbor, in an apparent effort to submit her to a classical conditioning experiment to make her his woman; but appearances often hide a more terrifying truth. "Honeymoon" is a story about an obsession, the story of a man willing to do anything to make a young woman to love him unconditionally. Written by Diego Cohen

You're my wife now.
30 October 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

If I hadn't seen a gazillion torture porn movies since Saw and Hostel, I might have thought that Honeymoon, from Mexican director Diego Cohen, was fairly decent. But I have, and it's about as clichéd and predictable as the now very stale genre gets.

Paulina Ahmed stars as married woman Isabel Herrera, who is stalked by neighbour Jorge Toledo (Hector Kotsifakis), who eventually abducts the woman, keeping her tied up in his home. From here-on-in, it's all about the humiliation and pain. Jorge conducts a wedding ceremony to make her his wife, only to have his affection thrown back in his face, leaving him no option but to spray acid down her throat, flay her fingers, and rape her!

Despite being quite nasty in tone, the unconvincing special effects and lack of originality prevent the film from being the gruelling experience that it so desperately wants to be. Add the fact that, when Isabel finally gets the upper hand, she fails to finish off Jorge despite plenty of opportunity, and what we have is far from satisfying experience. Remember ladies: always make sure your psycho is definitely dead before attempting to escape!

A twist regarding the true nature of Isabel's abduction does little to improve matters; ditto for the final revelation that the victim, having dispatched of Jorge by pushing his face in a barrel of acid, has now become the tormentor.

3.5 out of 10, rounded up to 4 for IMDb.
