Death Weekend (1976) UK Quad Poster
Only William Fruet's second film after his dour Wedding in White, and followed by the Canuxploitation classics Search and Destroy (1979), 1980's Cries in the Night (Funeral Home), Trapped (1982) and Spasms (1983). He was a forerunner in every horror exploitation trope - psycho / vigilante / home invasion / rural / slasher / body horror. Time for a box-set!
Artist: Vic Fair - This is the pre-censored tagline. Feminist groups were angry about both poster and film. Showings were disrupted by red paint being thrown at the screen. A new tagline - 'It began with a rape. It ended with a massacre.' was printed, and the fuss seemed to die down.
Aka: The House by the Lake
