"Couple's retreat, and retreat again"

Films: Long Weekend (1978)

Alias: Various, including dugongs, possums, eagles, huntsman spiders, ants, ect.

Type: Natural

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: Of each species, average sizes.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Good

Summary: If you're this callous to nature AND not a very decent person either, chances are fate will deal you a particularly nasty card. This couple had no idea what it was dealing with when the most nature-driven continent had it with their antics.

History: Peter and Marcia were vacationing in the Australian wilderness in an effort to mend their tumultuous relationship. However, they were lousy when it came to giving a hoot about the environment. Litter, running over animals, shooting said animals, the whole enchilada. Nature obviously didn't take kind to this, and instigated several non-fatal attacks on them to break their minds.

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: Peter and Marcia ultimately succumb to their paranoia, with Peter shooting Marica by accident with a harpoon gun before he runs off and gets run over by a truck.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Part of what makes it so effective is how these attacks aren't all-out assaults. They're the little things that slowly make you fear every single corner of the land around you. That dugong in particular is a bit freaky, as it crawled all the way to the campsite despite being shot dead earlier. Is this totally natural...?

Trivia: -This film was inspired by the scriptwriter's vacation on Easter Island. We don't have many details, but it must have been fun...

-The possum in the film had to be tranquilized so that it wouldn't go completely berserk on the actor feeding it.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

And protection against broken glass.

The next cover to any modeling magazine with the name "Trump" on it.

Hence the gigantic Emerald Boa.

Did that guy just turn into a cannibal?
Here's a postcard from your terrible fate!

Pretty hard to miss the squawking bird of death.
