Synapse, one of the leading labels for cult and genre film home video and restoration has announced its Blu upgrade for Australian classic, Long Weekend.
Citing the heavy requests for a Blu edition of Colin Egglestons 1978 filmremade by Jamie Blanks in 2008 as Natures GraveSynapse has provided and thusly revealed art and features for the release, coming April 14, 2015. In the nature-run-amok film, 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?
