Product Description

Product Description

Comedy starring Gene Wilder as Larry Abbot, a man undergoing a psychological procedure at his Great Aunt Kate's mansion, designed to rid him of his irrational phobias - by frightening them right out of him. But the jolts and frights may turn out to be the least of his problems when his Great Aunt Kate names him her sole heir. Suddenly, the entire family seems a little too vigorous in participating with his 'scare-apy', leading Larry to believe that one of his jealous kin may be murderous, and that another may be werewolverous.

From Amazon.co.uk

Gene Wilder's Haunted Honeymoon attempts to re-create the charm of those horror spoofs from the 1940s like Hope and Crosby's My Favourite Brunette. Larry (Wilder) and Vickie (wife Gilda Radner) play radio stars who decide to spend their honeymoon in the spooky old manse where Larry grew up with his Aunt Kate (Dom DeLuise in drag). The setup is a good one and the mostly British supporting cast, including Brazil's Jonathan Pryce, are certainly game. Unfortunately, Wilder elicits more chills--and groans--than chuckles (the dialogue is particularly ghastly). In the end, the results come closer to the George Lucas-penned dud Radioland Murders than to Mel Brooks's brilliant Young Frankenstein (featuring Wilder as the good doctor himself). If the Wizard of Oz-type ending doesn't completely redeem it, Haunted Honeymoon is still entertaining enough and seems positively sophisticated compared to the spoofs of more recent vintage (now that's a scary thought!). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Format: DVD
Going home to see your family is daunting enough, but in a Draculean castle with a werewolf, a dead transvestite, and a new will that makes you a walking target?

That's the basic plot behind "Haunted Honeymoon," an amusing and vaguely Mel Brooksian comedy movie about a man with a crumbling mind, a new fiancee, and a really abnormal family. The plot is pretty much a mess -- full of holes and dangling plot threads -- but the brilliant comic actors and hilarious scripting ("Oh, it's so COMPLICATED!") magically keep it from collapsing.

Larry Abbot (Gene Wilder) and Vickie Pearle (Gilda Radner) are actors in the hit show Manhattan Mystery Theater, and newly engaged. Unfortunately Larry's engagement has sparked off a psychological meltdown, and his uncle Dr. Paul Abbot decides there is only one way to cure him: scare him more. So he sends off Larry and Vickie to the old gothic estate where Larry grew up, to stay with his family.

Well, they're not quite the Addams Family. Actually, they're way worse -- most of them are broke, one is a transvestite, one is a creepy magician, and one is a creepier lawyer. One may also be a werewolf. The only decent one seems to be kindly, filthy-rich Aunt Kate (Dom Deluise).

And dear ol' Aunt Kate has left all her money to Larry (unless he expires before she does, in which case everyone else will get a share). And soon some very bizarre happenings are cropping up around the old mansion -- including a murdered werewolf, a cobra, and a dead body that pops up in Larry's bed. Is Larry going insane, or is a member of his family trying to make him that way... for filthy lucre?

...she's just eccentric.

Haunted Honeymoon is definitely one of the best horror spoofs that I've seen even if it seems to have a muddled plot and insane characters. Not that the crazy plot and characters matter when the jokes are coming thick and fast from all directions.

The star of the whole film of course has to be Dom DeLuise as crazy Aunt Kate who has some of the funniest lines that I have ever heard. But don't worry about Aunt Kate, she's just eccentric, as I'm sure you'll come to see...

A still very funny film, aided by the chemistry between Wilder and then wife Radner. Filmed in England with stalwart British Cast, in the manner of the 1930's radio crime thrillers. De Luise steals his scenes as Great Aunt Kate.

Not a particular fan of Wilder's, I found this particular film to be up there with his Mel Brooks collaborations as opposed to his Richard Pryor days; funny, lightweight and more than a little silly!

And that is the point some people miss - this is a silly film, not high art. Wilder avoids the more obviously slapstick elements, running through a variety of set pieces, with the fabulous Gilda Radner "What a wedding: the groom's insane and the bride's Peter Pan!" and wonderfully sleazy Jonathan Pryce filling out an excellent ensemble cast.

If you enjoyed Stir Crazy or See No Evil, Hear no Evil, you may find this a little too tame for you. But if you prefer your comedy a little gentler (and even more absurd), you should enjoy this underrated gem immensely.

Oh, and the review's title is very relevant to the plot...

A beautiful, very funny & priceless film. A deeply poignant one as well - you wouldn't know it but Gilda had breast cancer and knew she was dying when she made this. There's an amazing sequence which starts in a bedroom which then transitions into a ballroom - this was shot for real in-camera with good old fashioned smoke and mirrors, absolutely no computor VFX whatsoever.

What do you get when you compile some of the best known names of film & TV and near enough give them just an outline of a plot for a film? A: One of the most hilarious films you are likely to see. Taking it's cue from the (mainly American) Radio shows of the 1940's&50's, this film almost single handedly deals with almost every cliche the horror industry ever threw at audiences. Well known Celebrity larry Price Gene (wilder) is Due to inherit a fortune from his elderly Aunt Kate (Dom Delousie), except that there are a few "Shady Characters" who reckon it should be otherwise, and set about trying to prove larry as an unworthy beneficiary due to the fact he's nuts, (A fact they intend to prove by literally driving him made Courtesy of some very clever tricks). including a flying Bride (Wilder's real life wife the late Gilda Radner),

Everything that ever happened in the old horro Movies, happens here mysterious murders, where the dead body conveniently disappears Thunder storms, which later turn out to be nothing of the kind , and every corny situation that you used to watch and enjoy all those years are lined up for parody. This also gives the cast some great opportunities to deliver some real deapan lines "Electricity is the work of the Devil, this is god's way of telling me I should never have had it installed" wails Aunt Kate during a powercut, as well as some Earth Shattering Revelations over dinner ("One of you is a werewolf, I know because I've seen you in the garde, whoever you are, may god strike you dead, you're playing on the fears of an old lady". Comedy doesn't come much better than this, and with an all star cast (Gene Wilder, Gilda Radner, Dom Delouise, Bryan PringleAnna Way, Peter Vaughan, Paul L Smith, Eve Farrar Ana Way & Jonathan Pryce, you reallt can't go wrong. Don't just take my word for it either, no less a luminary than BBC Film Critic Barry Norman rated this among his top films, so just what more exuce do you need?
