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

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Before the slashing talons of A Nightmare on Elm Street and the spectral smirk of the Scream series, Wes Craven first brought dread to suburban America in his magnificently appalling directorial debut, The Last House on the Left. Kicking off the director’s troubling inquiries into broken-mirror family doppelgangers, the film mercilessly chronicles the fate of two young women captured by a gang of monstrous maniacs, a gory ordeal answered by equally bloody retribution once the criminals unknowi"

"15.10, PC Piti olla järkyttävä ja häiritsevä elokuva. Eipä ollut. Tai ehkä joskus aikanaan on saattanut olla, nyt tämä herättää lähinnä haukotuksia Uuno Turhapuro -musiikeillaan ja väkinäisellä näyttelyllään. Oikeastaan koko touhusta paistaa jotenkin sellainen amatöörimäisyys etten tästä pystynyt nauttimaan. Loppua kohden tämä kirii tasoa jonkun verran ylöspäin, mutta oli tämä Wes Cravenin esikoinen kyllä melkoinen pettymys."

" Although I'm not someone who usually enjoys rape/revenge type horror films I had to give this one a pass seeing as it was the first feature film by Wes Craven, my favorite horror director. I also thoroughly enjoyed the remake, as the only of it's type that I have. Sadly, this is probably one of Craven's worst films, and though I understand it's place in history, I don't understand how it managed to gather any admirers as, vileness aside, it's simply an astonishingly inept film.

" Depressing rape-revenge movie about people at their cruelest filmed in an almost documentary style and where we get to see murder and rape portrayed disgusting and unentertaining for once. Sandra Cassel is heartbreaking as a innocent doomed girl forced to perform in sexual activities before she is killed off. David Hess is pretty disgusting as the lead killer and gangleader. It is such a dark movie that any attempts at misplaced humor about stupid police men feels forced and wrong."

"Violence and revenge, is not always the answer. Granted, the villains in this movie did horrible things, but however did killing them in the end, make the parents on the same level as the killers?"

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"A mixture of red and blue food coloring mixed with caramel syrup was used for the fake blood, which - contrary to most movie blood - actually looks real. According to various cast and crew members (especially David Hess and Fred J. Lincoln), actress Sandra Peabody was genuinely terrified throughout most of the shoot, at one point walking off-set."
