This was surely a pleasant surprise! It had horror, comedy, nice special effects, good plot (although often used), overall a nice way of spending one dark, rainy night!
I will recommend it not only to Asian horror fans, but to anyone who wants to pass the time in a nice way, because "Long weekend" will deliver what we expect more in a such production: tension and scares! Sure, it has that typical touch on it, you will get to see a lot of things you've seen before, but the execution seems fresh, the humor is nicely placed and the effects are surprisingly well done.
Therefore without spoiling this, I'm just gonna say that you should give it a chance, I really was not expecting such a little gem. Far better than your usual Asian horror film.
