One of the creepiest horror movies of the last couple of years, Eden Lake clearly draws influence from the likes of Funny Games, as it presents the story of Jenny and Steve, a young couple who head off on a seemingly-idyllic holiday pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However, it doesnt take long before trouble follows them, in the shape of a group of teenagers (and their dog). And what starts off as a bit of harassment soon makes the whole holiday a simple game of survival. In different hands, Eden Lake could have been a run-of-the-mill, fairly nasty horror film. And while its still not what youd call pleasant, its handled properly, and this means there are substantive characters, some well-handled tension, and an unwillingness to shy away from the films setup. Its a hard film to take your eyes off. Do be warned, though: Eden Lake isnt a film where the camera is turned away at the key moments, and family viewing it absolutely isnt. But it is a very well made modern-day horror film, that sidesteps the many pitfalls of the genre. Its not an easy film to sit through, but it is a gripping one, and its a movie thatll stick in your mind long after the credits have rolled. Other than that, the less you know about it, the better --Jon Foster

Review of Lake Garda (Italy)
Advantages: ice cream, location as it is close to many other places Disadvantages: can get pretty expensive
...If you want somewhere to go in Italy that has it all, then lake Garda is the place and best of all is the largest of the towns around the edge; Garda itself.
This quaint little village is perfect for people of all ages to get away to.
The village front is set onto the lake and is lined with little restaurants and cafes. there is seating outside opposite all these places so the spectacular...
