Honeymoon Teaser Trailer

"The stress of everything is catching up to me…" Ohhh boy this looks really, really eerie. A teaser trailer has debuted online for Midnight SXSW film Honeymoon, from first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak. The film stars Harry Treadaway and Rose Leslie as newlyweds Paul and Bea, who travel to a remote lake country for their honeymoon. It doesn't take long for the whole atmosphere to get a bit creepy, almost as if Lars von Trier suddenly took over. Janiak was impressed by Treadaway's performances in Fish Tank and Control, she tells Hitfix. The film will play at SXSW 2014 and Tribeca and likely other genre fests. Be prepared for chills.

Here's the first early SXSW teaser trailer for Leigh Janiak's Honeymoon, direct from YouTube:

Synopsis from SXSW: 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. Honeymoon is directed by first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak, from a script by Janiak and Phil Graziadei, inspired by playing with "how well you can really know another person."

From watching the trailer I can tell you how it's going to end. The girl is a serial killer. She kills guys she meets online. In the woods. Then starts all over again. The end.
