Product Description

Amazon.ca

Future Nightmare creator and Scream weaver Wes Craven's film debut is a primitive little production that rises above its cut-rate production values and hazy, grainy patina via its grimly affecting portrait of human evil infiltrating a middle-class household. The story is adapted from Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring, but the film has more in common with Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs as it charts the descent of a harmless married couple into methodical killers. A quartet of criminals--a distorted version of the nuclear family--kidnaps a pair of teenage girls and proceeds to ravage, rape, torture, and finally brutally murder them in the woods, unwittingly within walking distance of their rural home. The killers take refuge in the girls' own home, but when the parents discover just who they are and what they've done, they plot violent retribution.

Along with George Romero's Night of the Living Dead and Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Craven helped redefine American horror with this debut--all three movies portray modern society crumbling into madness and horror. But, unlike his fellow directors, Craven gives his film an uncomfortable verisimilitude, setting it squarely in the heartland of modern America. While at times it's awkward and inconsistent, with distracting comic interludes, his handling of the brutal horror scenes is unsettling, and the death of the daughter is an unexpectedly quiet and lyrical moment. --Sean Axmaker

1.0 out of 5 stars YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING July 2 2002
Format:DVD
I just wanna know how anyone can think this was good or scary. It was boring, ugly, terribly acted,cheesy, and the list goes on. I am very open minded and a HUGE fan of Wes Craven but c'mon people this is so amateurish it looks like some kid made it as a joke.Sorry but i just dont understand how anyone would think this slop is worth 12 bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Shocking July 16 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This true story is as shocking as it gets because it is as scary as the movie I Spit On Your Grave. This is a good one to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You sick mother..." June 1 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film is gross. It's revolting. It's crude. It's one of the coolest flicks I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. Two lil girls go out to a concert and end up getting kidnapped by a gang of escaped convicts who take them into the woods and have a little over-the-top fun with them, taunting them, humiliating them, violating them, and finally killing them. It's too bad the parents find out about it, because they soon plot revenge. MGM finally will be releasing the most complete version of LHOTL on earth. ...

2.0 out of 5 stars The Last House on the Left May 8 2009
Format:DVD
The Last House on the Left

An original concept, but like many horror movies the delivery falls short. Tries to be disturbing, insightful and raw. In reality though full of bad acting, bad directing and especially bad plot holes/continuity and editing. That said there are still some redeeming horror scenes though sporadic. In the end I only recommend this purchase for people interested in completing their collection of Wes Craven's films. If you're interested in experiencing much better disturbing horror I recommend "the Audition or Irreversible"

2.0 out of 5 stars like watching someone's home movie June 10 2010
By falcon
Format:DVD
this is one gritty and authentic looking horror movie.it's low budget,and it feels like you're watching someone's home movie.the acting is not exactly high calibre,but again that adds to the authenticity of things.the movie is certainly twisted and morbid,and i think original,certainly for 1972.i wouldn't say i liked it,but i didn't hate it either.i will say that it is slow,and most of the violence in it is not very graphic.the blood is very vivid looking,though.i caught it on premium cable,so i wasn't out anything,other than the monthly cable bill.anyway,i give Last House on The Left (1972) a 2/5

J'ai bien aimé ce premier long-métrage de Wes Craven. La cinématographie est par moment très belle lors des scènes tournées en extérieur (rappelle la scène de la robe orange de "Thriller" et le générique de "Cosa avete fatto a Solange" dans les couleurs). Le contraste entre le début Walt Disneyesque (où tout le monde il est beau, tout le monde il est gentil) et la descente dans l'univers tordu d'une gang de délinquants(de fond de ruelle typiquement américains pas de classe)est réussi. Si on prend le film au sérieux, on est assurément scandalisé( ou déçu ?). Si on prend le film pour ce qu'il est : un film (à sa sortie on a cru bon de le rappeler "It's only a movie") Ou mieux, comme un conte folklorique (jeunes innocentes tombant naïvement dans les griffes des gros méchants parce qu'elles n'ont pas écoutés leurs parents...) On peut même en rire! Et c'est là que ça devient intéressant... Bref, un film bien fait à peu de frais et un excellent moment passé dans le drive-in de votre salon avec vos amis et une bonne bière ou de la liqueur et des chips.(SI vous prévoyez y ajouter un joint...assurez-vous de choisir le bon dealer...) Franchement, chiâler sur ce film c'est se priver d'un divertissement simplement très excellent et étrangement... intelligent!?!
Mon préféré de Wes Craven et de loin!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Caught off guard April 22 2009
By VOS
Format:DVD
This movie wasn't what I was expecting. Especially from director Wes Craven. It was very raw and disturbing. I assume the remake has been toned down. I think certain scenes could have been left to the imagination.

First of all, I am a huge fan of distubing, thriller type movies. Unfortunately, this movie (I use the term loosely) was a terrible waste of my time. Read more

This is a snoozer. Wes doesn't have many good movies, and this is easily one of his worst. It was so boring and monotonous and it wasn't scary, disturbing, or suspenseful. Read more

Perhaps one of the most unfortunate things about Wes Craven's LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is that the film has gained such notoriety over the years, that it's likely to disappoint... Read more
