Savage Weekend Reviews
Five friends journey to upstate New York for a weekend getaway. While there, they encounter strange, menacing locals before becoming victims of a psycho killer wearing a bizarre mask.
Sound like John Carpenter's "Halloween"? You wouldn't be the first to draw comparisons between "Weekend" and the latter, much more successful picture, which debuted two years later. For me, though, the question of "Savage Weekend" versus "Halloween" raises an interesting conundrum: would I rather watch a fun movie beset by sloppy filmmaking and hilariously simple mistakes, or a technically sound film that, while considered a seminal horror movie, I found boring?
I'll stick with "Savage Weekend."
this is one time has forgotten,released in 1976,this film has *GOT* to be one of the first american made slasher films.
pre-dating Carpenters "Halloween" by 2 years,it involves a masked boogyman (wearing a Halloween mask),crazy sexual deviance,backwoods hicks,and much much more!!
tons of goofs through out the film..but that just adds character..classic grindhouse fare!
The movie was predictable but fun.
