Last House On The Left (2 Disc Special Edition) [1&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Sandra Cassel

It's hard to analyse a film like Wes Craven's 1972 horror classic 'Last House on the Left', due to different types of audiences that view movies from the genre. It is very much a 'cult' film in every sense of the word, and anyone other than horror enthusiasts and Craven fans will no doubt find little interest in this intelligent work.
'Last House on the Left' is a genuinely disturbing horror opus, which pulls no punches in it's representation of violence and rape, and the debasing affects of these acts.

Fritz Lang's highly-influential 1927 masterpiece, 'Metropolis', is arguably the first great science fiction film ever made.

George A. Romero's 'Living Dead' trilogy, will always be remembered by horror buffs, as well as many other film fans, for it's radical originality, biting wit and extreme violence. From the first segment, 1968's 'Night of the Living Dead', Romero utilised a highly authentic documentary-style method, making the horrific scenes of zombie mayhem far more realistic than you'd expect. While daft in many moments, it's the trilogy's razor sharp and very black humour that gives it classic status, and it's political themes still impress.
The first of the bunch (presented here in it's 30th anniversary edition, with added scenes) is the best of the lot, and is clearly the forerunner of all the… Read more
