Looking for a different type of vacation? A place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, along with other people altogether? There are very few places in the world where this dream can be accomplished, but once you are able to find that place, you will not be disappointed. Being with your loved ones can be a fulfilling time when on a vacation and you should not miss one minute of it.
Beth and Harry have found their ultimate vacation location on the Great Barrier Reef. With over six hundred islands to choose from, all they are looking for is a place they can call their own. With no distractions and nobody else around, the two can focus on what is most important to them, each other. When arriving on their deserted island, the two are more than happy to let the captain leave so they can explore and not have one care in the world.
After a mid-day swim, the two fall asleep on the empty beach, but awaken to find a set of footprints that walked past their location into the islands wooded area. Thinking that it is just kids, the two go to investigate but are unable to find anyone else on the secluded island. Not allowing this to detour them from their romantic getaway, the two turn in for the night. Hearing something strange outside of their tent in the dead of the night, they go to look again, but fine nothing until morning came around. With their clothes being unpacked by someone else, the two take to searching the island once again and this time they stumbled onto an abandoned shack.
With strange drawings inside of the shack, along with tally marks etched into the wood under them, the couple came across a grave marked for Coral. The two looked around some more, but came up empty once again until they heard gunfire coming from off of the coast. Beth and Harry went to check this out and saw two poachers shooting into the water. The poachers caught a glimpse of the couple as well, but their hunt would not be disturbed for there is nothing the two could do to stop them. Returning to camp, Beth and Harry noticed that things were being moved around along with some important things going missing. The couple confronts the poachers, but are met with a bigger problem as the two men had nothing to do with their missing things and find that someone else on the island has bigger things in store for everyone that visits.
Uninhabited follows Beth and Harry as they are trying to get and stay away from the world on an empty island. It is a dream getaway until the two find that they are not alone on the island and their personal possessions start getting moved around, or go missing altogether. The two continue to focus on an abandoned shack they located, but are never able to find anyone inside. When investigating further, they find a journal in the shack that describes what had happened to Coral who was buried behind it and Beth starts to feel the pain of the young woman. Reading on in the journal, more notes of visitors to the island in the past say that the island is haunted and to get off of it as soon as possible. Beth and Harry are looking for a way to escape, but their only means of communication to the real world has been stolen and they will have to wait it out, if they can survive.
A little ghost story, tied in with some just basic fears, Uninhabited keeps you intrigued as you are waiting for the unknown, unseen person on the island to reveal themselves. If you are hoping that the stalker makes an appearance in the film, you may be a little disappointed, but with hearing sobbing coming from within the shack and not having a person present, you will have to continue to wonder if it is really a ghost. When Beth confesses that she believes that when a person dies, their energy comes back as something or someone else, you may be able to find out who the next victim will be. Stay Scared.
