HONEYMOON is a horror thriller about a young newly-wed couple whose honeymoon in a remote cabin starts to go wrong after the wife is found sleepwalking in the woods.


Strong gory images include a shard of wood is pushed between the legs of a woman, implying penetration to harm something inside her. Blood pools onto the floor around her. In another scene a worm-like creature is pulled from between a woman's legs. A person is knocked out by a blow to the head and thrown over the side of a boat. In one scene a woman is tied to a bed and a man pushes his hand between her legs. There is no sight of sexual contact. When he pulls his hand away it is covered in something sticky and unnatural. There is also some suggestion that a man thinks a woman was raped.


Brief sex with sight of thrusting and sight of rear male and female nudity in a shower. Sexual moaning is heard. There is implied oral sex and masturbation. There are also verbal sex references as a woman jokes about feeling full after sex and is teased about being a 'dirty girl'.


There is a strong sense of threat that builds throughout, as the characters are left unsettled and disturbed by the strange things that happen around them.


There are several uses of strong language ('f**k') as well as use of milder bad language including 'shit' and 'bullshit'.

Other issues include sight of a worm being pierced by a hook as it's prepared for fishing bait.
