At this point you’re not a major festival if you don’t have a portion of your schedule dedicated to genre fare screening at midnight. TIFF has Midnight Madness and SXSW has the Midnighters, the latter of which screened the very creepy and intimate “Honeymoon.” The horror film’s first trailer has arrived online to get under your skin.

The body-snatching subgenre of horror and science fiction is a particularly pliable one that can serve any number of purposes. This is the genre in which some kind of invading force, usually from beyond the stars, comes to Earth and starts taking over human hosts. It's a profoundly chilling thought: coworkers, loved ones, the friendly postal service person you tip every Christmas, are not who they once were. In some ways it's worse than turning into a vampire or a werewolf or a shambling undead zombie, because those all feature some level of physiological transformation. With the body snatcher subgenre, it's your unique you-ness that undergoes the mutation. With "Honeymoon," the subgenre, previously utilized to lampoon cultural movements and political parties, is placed into the intimate setting of a two-person relationship drama. It's a stroke of, if not genius, then at least insane cleverness.
