Australia, 2010 (MIFF 2010, Homegrown)

Director: Bill Bennett

Their dream holiday became their worst nightmare.

For Beth and Harry, the perfect romantic escape means doing something different, and going somewhere that's remote, secluded and completely uninhabited. But when they charter a boat to drop onto an isolated coral island, what seems at first like a lover's paradise becomes something much more terrifying.

Stalwart Australian filmmaker Bill Bennett (The Nugget, Kiss or Kill, Spider & Rose) returns with a supernatural thriller inspired by actual events. Shot in the idyllic surrounds of the Great Barrier Reef, a place resplendent with natural beauty, Uninhabited is a tension-packed thriller that, like Wolf Creek or Rogue, will have you rethinking your holiday travel plans.
