Colin Eggleston's 1978 Horror 'Long Weekend' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jan 30, 2015 at 06:00 AM PST by

The Australian outback will have its revenge on Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films will be releasing 'Long Weekend' on Blu-ray on April 14.

Attempting to resurrect their failing marriage, Peter (John Hargreaves, THE ODD ANGRY SHOT) and Marcia (Briony Behets) set out on a camping trip to a deserted stretch of the Australian coastline hoping a long weekend in the sunshine will help them patch their differences. They are a careless couple, littering the countryside with garbage, shooting guns and even driving away after wounding a kangaroo with their automobile. Their callous disregard for the environment soon becomes apparent when the animals start to seek vengeance. Marcia and Peter have proven themselves to be destroyers of nature. Will the animals allow them to leave or will they too be destroyed?

From the writer of ROAD GAMES and RAZORBACK comes this spooky little gem (Premiere Magazine), presented in a high-definition transfer from original vault materials with a re-mastered DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround soundtrack created by Synapse Films.

Bonus features include: Audio Commentary from Producer Richard Brennan and Cinematographer Vincent Monton; Motion Still Gallery Featuring an Audio Interview with Actor John Hargreaves; and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
