Long Weekend (1978, AUS) C-93m. SCOPE ** D: Colin Eggleston. Starring John Hargreaves, Briony Behets, Mike McEwen, Roy Day, Michael Aitkens. Australian chiller about a married couple with problems who go on a camping trip into the wilderness but find themselves stalked by different animals and "something in the water". Slow pace in first half almost brgins it down, but second one becomes more interesting, even hypnotic. Unsettling score by Michael Carlos. Remade in 2008.
