Last House on the Left (Wes Craven), 15 Sept. 2003
This is one of the strangest and most uncomfortable films i have ever seen. Wes Craven makes his directorial debut with this unorthadox, yet powerful horror flick. The story is bleak, the characters poorly casted and the camera work horrific, however the chilling score and picturesque location still manage to grasp your attention until the end credits. In comparison to today's horror movies it looks tired and weak, but is still worth watching to understand how this genre has advanced and to see where Craven's crazy macabre style originates from.
