This was the original House on the Left movie that was originally released quite a few years ago. A bit cut and dried, the second movie was released some time later. The characters were way better in the second version, I found the first version flat, poor selection of actors etc, the whole plot in this first movie I thought was a bit amateur. If you want to see this film; I strongly recommend getting the second updated film. Much, much better!!

If a film has ever displayed the benefits of a low budget, this is it. In a time where films are judged upon their special effects, its nice to be able to see a film that is so low budget, it would look like a snuff film if you didn't know any better. According to an earlier review - I'm disturbed because I find this film funny. However, I find it hard to understand how any normal person wouldn't find Craven's sick little piece of black comedy amusing. While disturbing at times, the gang of criminals who rape and kill Mari Collingwood are clearly a parodic sketch of the "gang of criminals" portrayed in many an episode of Kojak in the seventies. Equal parts terrifying, uncomfortable to watch (espescially since a certain male body part is bitten off *ouch*), and funny - Last House on the Left is one of Wes Craven's best.

This is a flick that ranks up there with "Requiem For A Dream" and "Kids". While the two movies I just mentioned were in completely different genres of film. And are two far superior flicks, they all do the same thing. They scare you. But they don't scare you with shocks and boogeymen, they scare you by showing the [messed] up things humans are capable of doing.
This film is scary because it looks too real. It's a warning to people, don't trust anyone. The 2 girls go to some guys house to buy some smoke. They get kidnapped, raped, tortured, and it's a mess from there.
In regards to the way the film looked, some say sloppy, amaturish, the filming looks just like "The Evil Dead." But the gore effects in this movie look real. The film is really violent. I think Wes Craven knew this when he was making the film, thats why hecut the violent scenes with stupid ones about two bumbling cops. The comedic interludes don't work because you are still reeling from the scenes of violence that preceded them.
I think you have to be disturbed to find this flick boring, stupid, or funny. It's not. It shows that there are people out there you a completely {messed] up.
Can this movie be viewed over and over? I really don't think so. This DVD is pretty much for the completest horror fans who need every "Good" horror DVD in their collection. But then again the... price tag won't break your bank. Buy it, watch it once and place it next to your copy of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre."
