All the special effects were created on set and in-camera. Gene Wilder insisted on using the same techniques for visual effects that were used in the 1930s. This also helped to keep the budget down. See more »

I saw this movie a loooong time ago and again just last week. Even though it is not as funny as today's comedy films, it still brings a little giggle every now and then. The movie is about a radio talent named Larry (played by Gene Wilder) who has a deeply rooted fear of anything scary, especially lightning. His fiance Vicki (played by Gilda Radner, a very talented soul) and himself decide to spend a weekend in a haunted mansion. Everything gets kind of weird from there, a sudden thunderstorm, an eccentric aunt (played by Dom Deluise) who claims the house is cursed, and other funky mishaps. Like I said before, the film isn't all that great, but it doesn't completely stink either. If you're in the mood for a stupidly silly movie to watch on a boring evening, then I would recommend "Haunted Honeymoon". I give this movie 3 stars, mostly because of the funny things Larry (Gene) does when he thinks he's in trouble.
