Death Weekend (1976)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
12.10.11

Death Weekend (1976) Amply solid Canadian rape-revenge joint. Not particularly abound with insane violence or nudity, though "Death Weekend" - a.k.a. "House By the Lake" - still manages to entertain.

Pretty much your standard set-up if you're familiar with this type of stuff: guy and gal get hassled by a carload of delinquents on their way to a country house for the weekend. After finally getting the better of the punks after an intense car chase and causing them to crash through a fence and into a pond, the enraged gang find out where the couple is staying and torment the hell out of them...

The performances in this one are considerably strong, notably the leader of malevolent attackers. They primarily 'get off' on verbally degrading the guy, drinking his booze, taking his speed boat on a joy ride, and trashing all of his expensive belongings while constantly giggling. Eventually, they decide to rape the woman who bursts into 'revenge mode', which is where the problem lay. Could've spent a bit more time on the whole revenge aspect, which seemed fairly rushed and unsatisfying.

However, "Death Weekend" is certainly one for 'exploitation' fans. Again, the performances are amusing and the pacing is decent. Mild recommendation.

Directed by William Fruet (Funeral Home, Spasms).
