Even though Long Weekend ticks off every horror cliché known to man, Wantha's movie feels quite fresh. However, we could also put that down to my resistance to Asia's lank haired lure. Thai horror is rarely groundbreaking but it regularly delivers the goods and Long Weekend is no exception. With memorable dialogue like "I'm dead enough" when one of the characters meets his extended fate, likeable characters and impressive death sequences, Long Weekend delivers a satisfying rush of token scares and brutal set pieces.
If you still have a candle burning for Thai horror, Long Weekend won't be the film to put it out. Wantha might not be firing on all cylinders with this one but he's still a considerable talent. Long Weekend is a satisfying slasher movie - brutal and occasionally brilliant - likely to frustrate only the harshest of horror critics. There's a lot to enjoy if you're not yet tired of this saturated sub-genre and the ending is a real corker. Recommended!
