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

" Date: 10/18/2021 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Arrow Video) Re-Watch Note: For a while, I'd wanted to rewatch the original Last House on the Left, and I decided that this month would be the perfect time to do so as part of my 31 Days of Horror. I wasn't a big fan of The Last House on the Left when I first saw it as a teenager. The more I watch this film, the more I enjoy it. The Last House on the Left is my second favorite Wes Craven movie next to the original Nightmare on Elm Street. The story's raw an"

"21.8. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Hullun vahva ja hirvittävä aikansa kuvajainen. Merkittäviltä osin täysin epäsopivat David Hessin pehmeät laulut korostavat satunnaisen järjettömän väkivallan täyttä järjettömyyttä. And the road leads to nowhere jää pahasti päähän soimaan, eikä tunne ole mukava, kun sen yhdistää juuri näkemäänsä kuvastoon. Lohduton ja koetteleva, mutta kun mukaan on lähtenyt, on mahdotonta irroittaa, vaikka välillä voi vähän pahaa tehdä. Hassut tun"

“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 found merit in. 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. The cinematography looks like it was shot on a broken lens, the acting is either cheesy as hell or just plain bad, the music is annoying and out of place and worst of all, the two bumbling, comedy relief police officers are grating, annoying and in poor taste. 

Perhaps intentions were good,” 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"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (222 movies items)

"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."
