G.O.R.E. Score: Zombie Honeymoon

Zombie Honeymoon (2004)

Release Date: 2004 (cable-TV movie; DVD)
Run Time: 83 minutes

The honeymoon is over.

“Zombie Honeymoon” is an independent, ultra-low-budget film that tries its hardest to be charming; even though it does have an interesting conceit, the film presented to the viewer is boring and wholly unrealistic, and ultimately falls flat on its face.

Director/writer/producer David Gebroe isn’t totally to blame, as the inspiration for the film’s story is a touching tale that’s clearly very personal for him. He based the story off of true events that happened with his sister and her husband – obviously not the zombie portions, but his sister’s husband was killed in a similar fashion to how the main character in “Zombie Honeymoon” dies, and this sets up the “what-if” scenario that comes with the character’s reanimation.

The movie follows newlyweds Denise and Danny as they arrive for a low-key honeymoon at the Jersey shore. Their time together is interrupted, however, when a lone zombie staggers out of the water, belches black goopy stuff on Danny, and then apparently dies for real. Danny slowly turns into a zombie, and the rest of the film is spent exploring the consequences of the groom’s new situation.

  1. haha never fear! I will not be watching this movie 🙂 Thanks for the heads up Tony!

  2. Dayum! This sounds like the worst of the worst…and that is saying a lot!

  3. @ Patrick and Peligrie: you’re both very welcome – as has been said, I watch the sh!t so you don’thave to. I just wish I had a better report to give, because I think the core premise of the tale is a solid one. Unfortunately, the resulting movie turned out to be one of the lowest-Scoring films so far.
