So I am now enjoying the three-part, albeit light-weight (by necessity) documentary The Mythologies Of Supernatural - which examines the concept of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell (the three books of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy (of which more on Sunday evening) in various modern religions.
Congratulations to Warner Home Entertainment for such impressive customer service!
On an unrelated note, a copy of Long Weekend on DVD also arrived today. I'd won it in an email-in competition on Dread Central.
A remake of the 1978 Australian nature-gone-amok movie of the same name, I suspect this won't be one to get out for this weekend's Valentine's Film Night with Rachel as the synopsis is as follows:
"When unhappily married and recently estranged city couple Peter (Caviezel) and Carla (Claudia Karvan) set off for a long weekend camping in a remote but picturesque spot on Austalia’s North Coast with Peter’s friend Luke and his girlfriend, they are hoping that a few days of sun, surf and solitude will help heal their marital wounds.
"After getting lost in the dark and spending an uncomfortable night in their car, Peter and Carla awake to find themselves parked mere yards from their intended destination and, despite the mysterious non-arrival of Luke and his partner, set up camp.
"In stereotypical city folk style they immediately begin to show a complete disregard for their beautiful, untouched environment by nonchalantly discarding rubbish, breaking glass, chopping live trees for firewood and taking pot shots at the wildlife.
"As the weekend progresses and their personal relationship deteriorates ever further, they become increasingly aware of an unseen, almost malevolent force of nature acting against them.
"But are the bizarre occurrences they witness merely coincidental events whose effects are heightened by the couple’s isolation or is something else at work?"Expect a review in due course...
