A Great movie no matter how you look at it
11 April 1999 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Savage Weekend is a very good film. Of course it does not have high production value, but as far as content and story-line are concerned it is awesome.

The film captivated me with its alluring plot and horror filled moments. Christopher Allport is wonderful in the role of 'Mother' Nicky, especially when he shows his true nature in the bar scene.

Unfortunately this film is very rare. I was lucky enough to find a copy at a local video store that was going out of business so I picked it up. If you ever find this film to buy or rent take advantage of it and you will not be sorry. It is a good film to watch with your friends, and like the last contributor mentioned, watching it with your girlfriend. She will be so scared that she won't want to let go of you.

I love this movie so much that my friends and I created our own sequel of sorts a few years ago via our camcorder. Granted we are not very good actors and we didn't take much time to plan anything, it is still fun to watch.

Long live Savage Weekend, it rocks!
