Last House on the Left 1972

From Amazon: Future Nightmare creator and Scream weaver Wes Craven's film debut is a primitive little production that rises above its cut-rate production values and hazy, grainy patina via its grimly affecting portrait of human evil infiltrating a middle-class household. The story is adapted from Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring, but the film has more in common with Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs as it charts the descent of a harmless married couple into methodical killers. A quartet of criminals--a distorted version of the nuclear family--kidnaps a pair of teenage girls and proceeds to ravage, rape, torture, and finally...

Last House on the Left Movie Review by Steven (1/15/2009)

Last House on the Left Movie Review by Jarrod (4/11/2008)

'The Last House on the Left' is a brutal and upsetting film, though it caused more of a stir in 1972 than it would now; Hostel is far more graphic and disturbing by comparison, but both are really exercises in sadistic voyeurism; we, as the audience, are watching people being tortured and murdered, and are powerless to...

Last House on the Left Movie Review by Emmett (3/28/2008)

Last House on the Left became one of the more notorious flicks on the dreaded video nasty list. With rape, dismemberment, chainsaws and humiliation you can sort of see why! But is it really as shocking and vile as evryone thinks it is. One word. NO!!
