You know we're really starting to wonder, man ... are weekend getaways worth your time or, more importantly, your life? Things just seem to go horribly awry for people on these damned things. In retrospect I guess that they are indeed a necessary evil. If only so we horror fans can giggle at the carnage.
I, like many, am a big fan of the original Sam Raimi classic The Evil Dead. The flick and its sequels have gone on to inspire many a filmmaker over the years, and this latest Aussie flick is no exception.
Here's a tip for your travelers out there ... If a place is known to be either remote, secluded, away from it all, and or Uninhabited, it may not be the best of places to pick for your holiday. Why? Because seldom are they as advertised. You could be getting yourself into just about anything with no one to call for help. Make sense? Of course it does, but by all means -- please continue to be adventurous! Natural selection yields meat for the beast!
Writer/director Bill Bennett might not be a genre mainstay, but he’s certainly been in the filmmaking business a long time. He’ll be taking his first stab at the genre with his newest film, Uninhabited, and we’ve got your first look at it.

Not to be confused with the Platinum Dunes crapfest of nearly the same title, the highly acclaimed Aussie fright fest The Horseman (review here) is hitting UK cinemas on October 30th, 2009, and we've got a look at the international trailer for you.
It's only been on a few weeks, but we have to admit one of our newest guilty pleasures is The CW's "The Vampire Diaries", and the main reason is Ian Somerhalder's flamboyant portrayal of the oh-so-bad vamp brother Damon Salvatore. Which ensures that we'll be keeping tabs on his newly announced involvement in the "Gothic fairytale" Cradlewood.
Sharks are probably one of the scariest creatures on the planet. There's just no reasoning with them. You're not a person in their cold black eyes. You, just like everything else in their way, are simply lunch. Hell, depending on your size, maybe even just a snack! It's that very justified fear of these creatures that the filmmakers behind The Reef hope to tap into.
As with My Son, My Son in the story below, thanks to the official site for the Toronto Film Festival (which runs from September 10-19), we're getting more details on the movies that are being screened, including one that's generated quite a bit of buzz in its homeland of Australia, Sean Byrne's The Loved Ones.
