| Down By The Seaside...
Peter and Marcia (John Hargreaves and Briony Behets) are having marital problems. In fact, their marriage is almost over. Peter drags Marcia on a trip to the -very isolated- Aussie seashore. Along the way, the couple spend most of their time fighting -they have a secret- and abusing nature in the same callous way that they treat each other. Slowly, very subtly, nature reacts.

Peter and Marcia are so busy hurting and blaming each other, that they hardly notice the growing menace around them. Like a tightening slipknot, the creatures close in.

LONG WEEKEND has a building atmosphere of approaching, encroaching doom, like the changes in the air before a bad storm. It's not your typical "nature's revenge" film. In this movie, the danger grows in proportion to what we learn about Peter and Marcia's history and true character. Highly recommended...
