Respect nature. Its message is maybe too blatant, but it's very entertaining to watch this couple have some nasty fights and then get picked on by mother nature. The claustrophobia, for lack of a better term, of being alone in the middle of nowhere, is effectively realized here. And for what is essentially a horror-suspense film, the drama at its core, between the couple, is surprisingly well done.
An overlooked Aussie thriller that has a better premise than the execution. It is still a lot of fun and provides some great tension.
Stephen King must have missed this by a whisker !
An underrated Australian thriller film. It's disturbing with some good sound design in some scenes. The couple were awful people but fun to watch interact. It's very underrated, so watch it if you can.
i love movies with a theme of PARANOIA, whether its ghosts, aliens, demons. or just some unknown scary force that;s out to terrify
This Australian film is described as a "nature gets revenge" film, but I don't think it's even that straightforward a film. A suburban couple who's marriage is falling apart go camping on a remote beach. Adding to their already strained relationship is that fact that she is not an outdoors kind of person and doesn't want to be there. Odd things kind of happen. A shape keeps appearing in the water near the man. He kills it ... it turns out to be a harmless dugong (look it up) ... but did he kill it? Other wild animals and to some degree nature itself starts acting weird. It's not really correct to say that this couple mistreat nature so nature gets revenge. This isn't "Frogs". It's more like these people are really bad people and their entire environment starts reflecting it back at them. It's a very unsettling film.
Not 100% my cup of tea. To city people get lost in the "wild" and nature attacks them. Sums it up pretty well if you like drawn out slow movies like picnic at hanging rock you'll probably like this.
unsettling and macabre little gem that delivers its message right from the very start all the way to the ending credits .7/10
The horror genre has been adapting the "lost couple in the wilderness" plot for quite a while and as many vary, all end up unsuccessful. Long Weekend is not as terrible as previous ones but still not so great either. It definitely could have been more suspenseful and thrilling.
A deeply pessimistic allegory over human nature's (auto)destructive rage. And at the same time a creepy, atmospheric horror film. The ominous music score and the last 30 minutes (a descent to the heart of darkness) are just unforgettable.
