Movie Review - NATURE'S GRAVE

Presumably taking place in either Australia or New Zealand (I didn't catch the locale), a couple go on a weekend camping spree with friends, although they never manage to catch up to said friends. 

Said couple are on the brink of divorcing, but you do get glimpses of the fact that they still care for each other.  But something has happened in the not-so-distant-past which has brought them to this point, and this weekend off alone in the middle of nowhere is supposed to help begin with healing things between them.

This movie is lushly filmed in an area of Africa that is both remote and gorgeous.  Unfortunately, that's all this film has going for it.  The acting is good, but it can't save the script.

The couple are continuously bickering at each other to the point where you want to yell at them to shut up.  The scares are far and few, and the only good one in my opinon is the 'advancing dugong'.  However, it's not enough.

The synopsis of the story claims that this is about nature "getting back" at man for his ill treatment of the world around him. I'm certainly glad to find that out because that little bit doesn't make itself at all clear during the film. In fact, if you never read the synopsis, you just get the impression that these two people have a really bad run of luck when it comes to camping.

My recommendation?

A few years back I came across a "book" (it was really a greeting card) of Peanuts Halloween Carols, sung to the tune of traditional Christmas carols. As an elementary school teacher, I loved pulling out the overhead transparencies I'd made of them, and shining the words up on the screen for my upper grades to sing. What was neater was to play instrumentals of those carols, and sing them.

Now comes It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies. For the horror fanatic in me, it was ideal. Although very tongue in cheek and a bit gross in spots, nevertheless the songs in this book are hilarious and would make ideal karaoke at parties. Just plug in the music!

One small gripe, however. As an ex-music teacher (with a BM and MM, and 25+ years teaching music before I went into the Kindergarten classroom), I'm very picky about "piggyback songs" - ie. songs with new words being sung to already familiar tunes. IBtLaLLZ has problems with the words of some songs not quite fitting the tunes assigned to it. But if this sort of thing doesn't bother you, my recommendation is to
