When will new film makers stop coming out with kooky ideas?
“In sickness and in health, till death do us part.”
So vowed newlyweds Denise (TRACY COOGAN) and Danny (GRAHAM SIBLEY) before bounding off for an idyllic honeymoon retreat down the Jersey shore. Basking in the glow of their nuptials on a beach at dawn, the couple’s bliss is interrupted when a mysterious figure inexplicably emerges from the waves and mauls Danny. Rushed to the hospital, pronounced dead on arrival, Danny suddenly awakes…a changed man. The next day, Denise catches her formerly vegetarian husband feasting on human flesh in the bathtub.
What’s a girl to do? She downs a couple tequila shots, smokes a cigarette, and helps him clean up the mess. He promises to never hurt her, so she sticks to her vows and tries to plot a way for them to leave the country and make Danny well again. But can they jet off to Portugal before Danny claims more victims? And will she be able to put on the perfect candlelight dinner if his skin's shedding into the soup?
With startling complexity, Zombie Honeymoon treads the fine line between satire and drama as Denise and Danny struggle with their appalling new reality--a harrowing descent into a hellish nightmare that stretches the concept of commitment to its breaking point.
Will Denise break her vows…or will she stand by her man?
Keep your eyes open for more coverage of Zombie Honeymoon in the very near future.
In the mean time, check out these comments from industry people so far...
"The first truly romantic flesh-eating corpse movie."
"Zombie Honeymoon scores simultaneously as romantic, tragic, grotesque, and screamingly funny...this strong, well-thesped pic has a real shot at becoming a cult classic."
"Expanding the limits of what cinema can do in almost every scene, not since BLUE VELVET has a film juxtaposed psychological, visual and audio elements to propel the movie forward with this kind of velocity."
--Film Festival Reporter
“Despite its exploitation title and adroit comic touches, the film is fundamentally serious and remarkably poignant…sure to become an instant cult horror classic…”
--Kevin Thomas, L.A. Times
"Zombie Honeymoon is a unique experience...I believe I can truly say that this is a perfect date movie."
"Zombie Honeymoon will move your heart, then tear it out!"
“Gebroe has crafted a gruesome and compelling little genre-blender…unexpectedly affecting and occasionally deeply disturbing…”
--Dave Davis, www.chud.com
“Oh, and I met a man named Dave Gebroe here, who says I must see his film "Zombie Honeymoon," which he describes as his response to my
call for a truly romantic horror film. I cannot quite remember issuing that call, but no doubt he is right, and certainly there is a
tragic lack of such films.”
--Roger Ebert, in his Park City coverage
6th Jun 05 Imagine if you will, being middle aged, bloated, in a boring, thankless job and trapped in a loveless marriage. And that’s the way it’s going to continue until you’re 6 feet under. You get late night phone calls from an old friend.
Cheesy Chuck Norris Night 13th Dec 05 Chuck and Flounder battle through a sea of breasts to stop an unstoppable man who's also in the second film. Just like Chuck.
