The Honeymoon Killers 18 rating

The disturbing true story of a pair of twisted lovers who posed as siblings to seduce, con and - if necessary - kill.

Crime 1969 107 mins

Director: Leonard Kastle



When lothario Ray Fernandez (Tony Lo Bianco) strikes up a correspondence with Martha Beck (Shirley Stoler) with the intention of running off with her savings, he appears to meet his match. Bringing her in on his operation, they pose as siblings to seduce, con and – if necessary – murder the desperate lonely hearts who fall for Ray’s charms.

Filmed on a low-budget, in grainy black-and-white and with a largely unknown cast, Leonard Kastle’s sole directorial feature is an unflinching and authentic portrayal of evil, based on the notorious Lonely Hearts Killers of the 1940s.
