Product description

Product Description

Hailed by critics as one of the greatest horror movies of all time and now fully Uncut and Uncensored: dare you enter The Last House On The Left? Teenagers Mari and Phyllis stop off before heading to a concert in the city to score some grass when they are accosted by a group of thugs led by the reprehensible and deeply psychotic Krug. While Mari's parents are just a mile away preparing a party for their daughter, the two girls are subjected to the most terrifying ordeal imaginable. With his male and female cohorts, the monstrous Krug delivers a grueling catalogue of assault and depravity on the two girls that stretches the bounds of on-screen horror to its very limits. Only after the girls' suffering is ended does the enormity of their actions dawn upon the villainous gang. But for them the nightmare is just beginning: the house they happen upon to spend the night is one from which they may never leave alive. From master of horror Wes Craven comes a film so powerful, so shocking that it has never been permitted in its complete and uncut form in the UK... until now.

The film which brought Wes Craven to the attention of the horror movie world, "Last House on the Left" (originally "Night of Vengeance") is an enigmatically titled reworking of Ingmar Bergman's classic "The Virgin Spring" - for 'reworking' read 'dumbed down'.
In its day (released in 1972, shot earlier), it was seen as a horrific gore fest and was denounced as un-American. As has been frequently pointed out, the visceral images from the film were hardly as disturbing as the daily diet of television news from Vietnam which the American public were then watching. For some reason it was seen as going too far, as being too violent for its time ... and the notoriety meant it sold and sold and earned a cult reputation which can appear a little surprising by contemporary standards.
Originally envisaged as a hard-core porn movie which would push the boundaries, "Last House on the Left" evolved into purist horror during the shooting (or maybe the editing). It presents two young women heading off from rural Connecticut into New York city to watch a band called 'Blood Lust'. It's Mary's 17th birthday, she's lovely and innocent, and this is her first real excursion to the big city. Her friend, and obviously a corrupting influence, leads her astray ... and they find themselves kidnapped by a couple of guys newly escaped from prison ... or rather, by a couple of guys and their two hangers on.
The gang take the girls back to Connecticut, coincidentally parking up outside Mary's home, and take the girls for a walk in the woods. I use 'walk in the woods' euphemistically. Mary's parents will stumble on what has happened and exact their own, gory retribution.
Frankly, it's dreadful.

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.

Infamous for having been banned in the UK for many years, Last House on the Left is still a vicious little film. As might be expected, Wes Craven's first film has production values so low they are barely there, but the lack of polish makes this seem a much more grainy and real film - this is a million miles away from the slick horror of A Nightmare on Elm Street, instead seeming more like an early template for the sadistic horror of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The story is presented as a collision between two families - one a normal conservative suburban family, the other a drug-crazed psychotic Charles Manson-type Family. The first half of the film - while crude - shows flashes of genius, and the fate of the two girls the Family come across is both shocking (convention leads us to expect at least one of these girls to survive to become the heroine of the film) and brilliantly acted and filmed (witness the dead-eyed girls post-rape walk into the river). Unfortunately the second half of the film doesn't quite convince - the actors playing one of the girls parents are dire, and if two parents found out their daughters killers were in the house I would expect them to attack them without thinking, not potter around laying traps. The film as a whole deals with an incredibly dark subject matters, but Craven unwisely tries to inject some comedy interludes with a couple of bungling policemen - while not completely without merit these inserts clash horribly with the tone of the rest of the picture. The music score is also utterly bizarre, with someone playing an acoustic guitar and singing along songs about the characters in the film over the action, but somehow this works well in highlighting the mood, and becomes one of this films most distinctive and quirky delights.Read more ›
