Completely forgotten film is appropriately unmemorable.
17 September 2003 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

HAVE A NICE WEEKEND is one of those very independent American movies that might have been released to a theater in Arkansas for three days before burrowing itself into the ground, only to be exhumed years later by a rinky-dink video distributor. Once you manage to obtain a copy of this obscure film, however, you'll have no trouble understanding why it has been banished to the netherworld of forgotten cinema...it's because it sucks.

Oh, yes, friends...this flick sucks HARD.

Although it's pitched as a horror/slasher story, this is actually more along the lines of an underdeveloped Agatha Christie-style mystery. A group of nondescript characters are brought together on a small private island. Murders take place, characters side-glance each other suspiciously, and...does this sound familiar?

Not only is the film working with stale trappings, it doesn't even deliver a substantial quantity of bloodshed...this is a tame, timid, unfurnished wipe-out, devoid of estimable qualities besides having a nice-sounding music score. The flatly written characters are played with understandable disinterest, and the film dog-paddles along toward an anti-climatic dud of a resolve.

This will be of minor interest only to the most sworn archaeologists of proto-slasher cinema...anyone else might not have such a nice weekend.

3/10
