The Last House on the Left is a sick, nasty film about evil and revenge which doesn't chicken out, except in some stupid "comic relief" scenes. It's called exploitation, but in my opinion it's less exploitive than its remake, which let its audience off the hook with a happy ending, as if to say: "all that rape and carnage you just saw? Don't worry about that, all the goodies got away! Now go home and sleep easy".
In this modern re-telling of Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring two teenage girls, Mari Collingwood (Sandra Cassel) and Phyllis Stone (Lucy Grantham), try to score some weed and in the film's most difficult scenes are captured, raped and murdered by Krug (David A. Hess), his son Junior (Marc Sheffler), Weasel (Fred Lincoln) and Sadie (Jeramie Rain), a gang of escaped convicts. Junior is the only human member. He's a pathetic wretch who's been mentally cowed since birth and hooked on heroin by his cretinous dad, a man so vile he'd make Freddy Kreuger blush. Their horrible deeds done, the gang unwittingly seek refuge with Mari's parents, John (Gaylord St. James) and Estelle (Cynthia Carr), who discover their crimes and take gruesome vengeance.
What Mari and Phyllis suffer is so heartbreaking that we find ourselves in league with the elder Collingwoods, even if we can't see ourselves doing what they do. They're a nice, middle-class couple who chide their daughter for using words like "tits" and wince at the idea of her seeing Bloodlust, a violent rock band. If you knew them you'd never in a million years imagine them committing brutal slaughter, but they do, because fate and their grief makes them sadists.
The one major problem with this film is tone. There's a sheriff (Marshall Anker) and deputy (Martin Kove) who try reaching John and Estelle while events unfold.

Format: DVD
As far as I'm concerned, this superb two disc DVD release of 'The Last House On The Left' is almost just as good as the film itself, which is a cult classic, and the first movie to be written and directed by Horror God Wes Craven.

It's compulsively watchable, realistic and suspenseful, with real brutal honestly that is sadly often lacking in today's horror films, where the violence can often come over as ridiculous and cartoon like. I disagree with people who say that it remains as shocking as it ever was, it is undeniably nasty, but quite tame I think in comparison to films that have followed. However, at the time of it's release in 1972, I don't doubt that it most certainly would have been seen as very shocking. It was, after all, banned in the UK for 30 years.

The script could sometimes use a little bit of work, but I think that the gritty and realistic performances from the cast make up for that. As the story goes, teenage friends Mari and Phyllis go to the "big city" to see their favourite rock band play. Along the way they meet recently escaped convict Krug, who invites the girls to his digs where he and his gang inside lock them in. The next day, they end up in the forest, but what follows next I won't say.

All too often the word 'classic' is overused, but I do honestly think that 'Last House On The Left' deserves such a title, and there is lots to like about it. As well as a good plot that will keep you watching, there are even a few light hearted moments, particularly from the comical Sheriff character and his deputy. I particularly enjoyed hearing some genuinely good music, including the original song 'The Road Leads To Nowhere' by David Hess, who even stars in the film itself as Krug.

Format: DVD
Over 10 years before Elm Street began, Craven was already creating fear, disgust, invention and controversy, particularly with The Last House on the Left, a notoriously banned film which, like most banned films is graphic more in theme than content. For its time though, it was heavy stuff, rape, murder, mutilation, torture, sadism, revenge, chainsaws...

The film begins calmly enough, with two teenage girls going out together to a rock concert, we watch them getting ready at one of their houses with one set of parents telling them to be careful, have a good time etc. However, after looking for pot before the concert the girls are kidnapped by a group of sadistic escaped criminals including Krug, the leader, and his apparent girlfriend Sadie. The girls are then raped, tortured, and eventually killed in brutal ways. Craven directs these scenes so that they are almost unbearable to watch even though we don't see much, and the performances of the cast are excellent. Even after the deaths the killers seem to realise what they have done and there seems to be some sort of confusion in their eyes, if not remorse. Then in a Bergman-esquire twist, the killers' car breaks down and they look for help at a nearby house which just happens to be the Collingwood home, where the parents of one of their victims live. They have called the police as their daughter has not returned home, and unwittingly invite the maniacs in. Soon though each group recognises the other, and the parents go about their bloody revenge using a variety of dentistry and home improvement tools to full, gripping effect.
