Editorial Reviews

Several couples head to upstate New York to watch a boat being constructed. They are soon stalked by a murderer behind a ghoulish mask. This amazing film combines a mixture of sex and shocking violence. Filmed in 1976 but not released until 1981, this

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware, incomplete and heavily censored!! July 5, 2007
Why would anyone waste time and money releasing a film on DVD in a form that is confused and incomplete due to heavy editing and censoring?? Such is the case with Savage Weekend. I first saw the film several years ago at a drive-in theater in Georgia. I vividly recall that there were several nude and racy scenes and some fairly graphic violence, as well. Well, if you buy this DVD you can safely play it for the kids because all of the "adult" content is missing!! Also, the picture quality is absolutely dreadful and grainy and looks like it was copied from a very poor quality source; such as a copy made on VHS at home from a poor cable t.v. service!! Maybe one day Anchor Bay or someone else will give this film the treatment it deserves and release it in the original, complete, unedited and uncensored version. Also with decent and clearer picture quality, too. As a fan of actress Caitlin O'Heaney (aka Kathleen Heaney), this DVD is a real letdown.

I enjoyed the movie . It was fun, but I can't say much about the film transfer. Bad at best.It was watchable but not a great effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars good low budget film October 15, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is really good for a low budget film, and for its time too. I believe this was filmed in 1976. I liked this movie a lot, although, it was easy to find out who the killer was. The kills were ok and I was scared a few times. I like the soundtrack from this film too. Pretty impressive for low budget. The acting and cast were ok as well. The DVD edition of this is just ok. This needs to have a remastered in high definition on either DVD or Blu-ray to make it even more enjoyable, but the DVD does the job. I would recommend this movie for your horror collection. I got this movie really cheap at the time too which made me pleased with my purchase. I would rate this 3.9 out of 5

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it a lot February 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Sure it took forever for anything to happen, but I didn't mind it. One character was very entertaining to watch (I'm sure you'll guess which one). Wished the murders had been more graphic (as in bloody) and less chat though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Banjo Music, Halloween Masks, And A Weekend Retreat... October 15, 2008
This is a yawn of a slasher movie, made in 1976, although it was stuck on the shelf for five years before being released. When you see it you'll know why. The film plays like an uneasy combination of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Phantom of the Opera", and "Pod People".

After a brief, tense, and needlessly melodramatic opening revealing conflict and parenting issues within a tedious group of people, the cast goes to a creepy old cabin for the weekend, where crazy Otis works as a boat caretaker. How do we know Otis is crazy? The heavy-handed direction and screenplay have one cast member mention to another that Otis has previously kidnapped and branded (yes, with a branding iron) a woman. But that's all in the past, and they have no reservations whatsoever about letting Otis stay on as the caretaker of their boat. It turns out that Otis is none too skilled at his craft, as they bring in an outsider to assist him, after which many bad things happen. Coincidence?

The film is mostly boring, although there is one fairly good plot twist which you can predict if you watch carefully: I was too bored to watch it all that carefully in part due to the tedious flute and banjo music. I give "Savage Weekend" two stars for throwing the curveball at the end.

As a side note, the movie is available as part of the "50 Movie Pack: Drive-In Movie Classics" collection, normally for less that you would pay for this single DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like this movie but... April 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Awful. From beginning to end, this film is inept on all fronts. I wanted to like it and I gave it plenty of chances but to no avail. Avoid at all cost.
