What can I say...Superior...amazing...this movie will blow you away...
ok...so it's not an award winner for dialogue, but it should be for everything else that is important for a straight up raunchy, diabolical, gore-fest/ rape revenge flick. For example, one of the most memorable lines is a rapist complaining that "the sex-crime business doesn't pay that well."...Wow!! bad line but what does it say about the mind set of the movie...exactly...not for the timid.
More than 30 years after being made, the film remains effectively disturbing and upsetting, simply because it portrays real people doing horrible things to other real people. note: Hallmark and Atlas International (distribution company) when they released the movie in Germany, attempted to pass it off as an actual "snuff" film (i.e. a real murder staged for the camera).
Wes Craven, whether intentionally or not, created a masterpiece of disturbing horror. And on his first try at that.
Blood, Guts, Rape, abuse, torture, penis biting, forced suicide, castration, pants wetting, and good ole disembowlment, and much much more kiddos...whew!
This is a must see...Whether you love it or hate it (Its like golf ...there is no in-between), you must admit that Last House on the Left is a powerful and important film (remember when it was made).
And by the way...TACOS ARE COOL!!
