Films: Long Weekend (1978)
Alias: Various, including dugongs, possums, eagles, huntsman spiders, ants, ect.
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.
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.
