Nobody Told the Contestants

What a squandered opportunity! This real-life incident is the best set-up for a Horror flick I’ve ever heard. You start with one of those lame-ass “reality” TV shows that are all the rage these days, this one called EDEN, with the premise that a group of regular people are dropped off in a remote location—unlike the Discovery Channel’s NAKED AND AFRIAD series, these folks got to keep their clothes—completely removed from society (in this case, the location was somewhere in Scotland), and have to fend for themselves, surviving the elements and learning to work together, or not, for the betterment of the group—all while a camera crew, director, and probably caterers stand by and watch. (That’s why I put the word “reality” in quotation marks.) Then the show got cancelled, but nobody told the contestants, and they continued to live in the wilds while the cameras rolled. The headline is kinda misleading, though; the network responsible for the show plans to air the footage at some point, so it’s not like they just forgot that the people were out there or anything.

This is Scotland, though, remember. Wild, remote Scotland. Remember the flick DOG SOLDIERS? Here’s the perfect set-up for a sequel, right here. Competitors, camera crew, and caterers, all ripe and ready to be eaten by a pack of hungry werewolves! Somebody get on that, already!
