A lush island setting where a couple of newlyweds are stalked, terrorized, threatened and forced to fight for their lives. Hey, let's go there! Rogue Pictures doesn't present a very tourism-friendly picture of Kauai in A Perfect Getaway, an R-rated thriller that opens Friday. Gorgeous vistas, azure water ... and psycho killers on the loose! So, how about a sweepstakes that sends you and an unsuspecting loved one to that very place? Sound awesome? Hollywood studios have a long history of giving away trips to the exotic locales where films were shot, with luxury hotel, airline and travel-bureau partnerships. But it usually happens with rom-coms and other happily-ever-after fare, where everyone ends up hugging and laughing against a lovely sunset. Here's part of the description for A Perfect Getaway, which stars Milla Jovovich and Steve Zahn as the newly marrieds and Timothy Olyphant as Hot Shirtless Guy Who's Possibly a Baddie: "Paradise becomes hell on earth as a brutal battle for survival begins." Not likely to find that on Kauai's next travel poster. Bon voyage!
