Dated and uneven, yet historically important

"Mari. She was a lot tougher than you, doc. She took a while to kill. She was really tough. We had a hard time with her."

Every filmmaker has to start somewhere. During the 1980s, Wes Craven and Sean S. Cunningham separately developed two of the most lucrative long-running horror franchises in cinematic history: A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th, respectively. Yet, the ... read more

Wes Craven’s early filmmaking technique, to me, feels very scattered. Scattered in the sense that he never knows exactly where he’s taking his projects. At least that’s my experience of him. Though, “The Hills Have Eyes” was brilliant, and another brilliant remake was released in 2006. For that, I may have brought my expectations a little too high, as I personally loved both the original... read more

Since I have a weak spot for Wes Craven and since this movie had developed a rather infamous reputation since its release, I was quite eager to check it out. Unfortunately, I didn't care much for the whole thing. I mean, it was still much better than the recent remake which was really weak but, in my opinion, it was just a rather nasty cheap-ass horror flick like they used to make back in those da... read more

""Ah, it looks like Mari's getting cards from half the civilized world. Mari Collingwood. Mari Collingwood. Mari Collingwood. You'd think she's the only kid to reach the age of 17. Of course she is probably the prettiest piece I've ever seen." Wes Craven's first feature film is a movie that disturbs me on a number of levels. What I really like about the film is that it really plays as a cautionary tale, much like little Red Riding hood in a sense, about the corruption of innocence and how veeri"

Movies That Suck (14 movies items)

"Legendary classic horror film, right? A must see for anyone interested in the horror genre, yes? Don't you believe it. The acting and dialogue are terrible. The music is wildly out-of-place, as were the scenes with the bumbling cops. But what sealed it for me was this: the mother of one of the girls, having just learned that not only was her daughter brutally raped and murdered but that it happened at the hands of the very people she was nice enough to provide lodging for in her own home, decid"

"26/01/2014 The Last House on the Left selkeästi haluaa tehdä asioita, mutta ei osaa laittaa esitystään täysin ehjään muotoon. Elokuvassa näkyy tekijöiden halu esittää rintaliivittömät naiset, raiskaukset, spedeilevät poliisit ja moottorisahan rynkytys, mutta tarinankerronannallisesti kaikki esitetään pienesti puolivaloilla. Tylyimmillään elokuva voisi olla tuhannesti tylympikin, jos vain hahmoihin olisi jonkinlaisia tai vahvempia tunnesiteitä syntynyt."

“Wes Craven is a good horror directer and story teller, I think this movie was all about the hype because it was the first real shock horror movie. I actual like the remake better, this movie comes across cheap nasty and stupid. Like I said it had a lot of hype when it came out, but that is the only good thing was the hype other wise this Wes Craven film was bad. It had a good story that had promise, but it just went down the stilly track. Instead of feeling for the victims I did not really care, because the movie just made you feel nothing for no one. It is a cult movie and one to watch, but the remake is better in story acting etc.” read more

I mean, it was still much better than the recent remake which was really weak but, in my opinion, it was just a rather nasty cheap-ass horror flick like they used to make back in those days. I was really surprised to discover that the late Roger Ebert actually liked a lot this movie since he never displayed much love for this genre. I mean, there was some good stuff, absolutely. For example, the juxtaposition of raping and mutilation with the upbeat soundtrack was really striking and some of the actors were actually decent (not all of them unfortunately). The mood was also really ” read more

Movie Reviews (part 5) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Depressing and showing people at their cruelest filmed in an almost documentary style and where we get to see murder as murder portrayed as something disgusting and unentertaining for once. Sandra Cassel is heartbreaking as a innocent doomed girl forced to perform in sexual activities before death. David Hess is pretty disgusting as the lead killer and gangleader. The Downs: Terrible attempts at misplaced humor where we can laugh of the stupid police who can't even take a hike correc"

"Spoil. Hyvin vaikea elokuva arvioida. Sanotaan nyt kuitenkin The Last House on the Leftin olevan yksi inhottavimmista, ahdistavimmista ja pelottavimmista katsomistani leffoista aikoihin. Hirviöt ja kuolemattomat sarjamurhaajat tyyliin Michael Myers voivat vetää viikseen tämän vierellä, niin vuolaana virtaa kylmä hiki pulssin noustessa Wesin esikoisen äärellä. Vaikka hahmot ovat surkeasti kirjoitettuja eikä näyttelykään ole kaksista (castissa mukana mm. pornotähti Fred Lincoln),"
