There are a couple of shots of a Tasmanian Devil shortly after the couple arrive at the campsite. As the name suggests, Tassie Devils live only in Tasmania. Yet the beach/camping scenes were filmed in Bega, NSW, which is a long way away, and separated by a large stretch of ocean. See more »
Little known, but excellent nature-strikes-back thriller from Australia is simply one of the best of its genre!
Troubled married couple retreat to coastal wilderness only to anger the local wildlife and end up fighting for their lives.
Intelligent and well-made thriller manages to be nicely straight-faced, unlike most of its kind. With a haunting story and some wonderful direction by Eggleston, Long Weekend stands out from most of the 'nature on the rampage' films that were so popular in the '70's. The film possesses some moments of sheerly spooky psychological terror as well. While the cinematography and filming locations are stunningly beautiful. The music score is nicely moody and appropriate.
One true highlight of the film are its wonderful stars! The attractive John Hargreaves and Briony Behets do some top notch performances!
All around, Long Weekend is truly above-average and a must see for thriller fans.
*** 1/2 out of ****
