Christopher Webster [DVD News 05.29.09] movie trailer news dvd horror



Oh. My. God.

We try not to post too many of these kinds of rant heavy non news posts but the DVD art and details for Jamie Blanks’ remake of the Australian chiller Long Weekend has just been released over at Fangoria and it appears that Screengems, in all their infinite wisdom, hase decided to give it the awkward and uninspired title of Nature's Grave, and have given it one of the worst DVD covers I have seen in a long time.

Why do I care? Well not only have we been following Long Weekend's progress for a while (you'll find the trailer here), but Colin Eggleston's original 70s film is one of my favorite Australian movies ever made, so they are not only giving what I've heard is a fairly decent remake a bad name before it's even released, but they are tarnishing a classic. Would you pick this up at the video store? I think not.

Nature's Grave is scheduled to street August 4. If you haven't seen the 1978 version of Long Weekend you can find out more about it here.

Check out a much classier piece of promo art for the film after the break.

Poor Long Weekend.

To me, the original Long Weekend is a masterpiece of breathtaking suspence and the pain and heartbreak of a falling apart relationship.

I'll still see this film, but I will never use the title "Nature's Grave" for this film ever, unless I hate it.
