There are so many horror movies out there I’m sad to admit I haven’t seen a lot of them. One inparticular I’ve been meaning to check out is the 1978 Australian pic Long Weekend, which is being remade by Jamie Blanks. While out promoting the release of Storm Warning, Blanks chatted a bit with B-D about the remake, which is now in production. Read on for the skinny and check out Storm Warning on DVD February 5 from Dimension Extreme.
When asked what type of horror film LONG WEEKEND will be Blanks replied, “A very different one… You’re going to have to wait and find out.” The synopsis for the film is pretty vague and we tried to get Jamie to reveal just tad more, but sometimes keeping the story a secret can add to the viewing experience – at least it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. “I can promise you that it’s nothing like “The Birds” or any other “Mother Nature Goes Apeshit” movie that you’ve ever seen,” he continues, “There are elements from the original that I wouldn’t dream of changing and there are also many times in which we depart from the original film. I’ve long loved the first movie and am having the time of my life with the remake. It’s going to be an amazing movie and I’m already proud of what we’ve done with it.”
Watch for the full interview later this week and pick up STORM WARNING on DVD February 5 from Dimension Extreme.
