2.0 out of 5 stars the curse of infamy, 18 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Last House On The Left (2 Disc Special Edition) [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
this film suffers badly from its censorship cuts (like 'the hills have eyes' & 'I spit on your grave') and the final edit is made to look shabby. however, this film is better than the two referenced above. craven does exhibit some sense of cinema - his use of music for one is well done here.
this film tells the story of a gang of criminals who assault and kill two girls only to get their comeupence from the parents. these rape-revenge films are largely subject to controversy and bans but the infamy they gain leaves it difficult to be objective - or dissapointed(?). it's a seventies film so the acting is corny and what was then cool certainly isn't now(hiding alcohol in a river tied to string?) the rape scene isn't pleasent but then that's no surprise and the scene when one of the girls is made to pee herself isn't nice either.
this film has a reputation as being nasty but as with most of these films it has dated 'not so well'. one of the better films in this sub-genre but still not a great one.
