The Last House on the Left
The Last House on the Left is the movie that helped put Wes Craven on the map and I am a huge Craven fan, but I did not like The Last House on the Left. I found it tonally bizarre and downright gross – I have never been a fan of gross horror. I didn’t understand why on earth the police officers in the film were inserted into the film as slapstick comedy segments, and the music choices were just as odd.
I really can’t say a whole lot about this movie, like most of the horror classics I’ve seen I leave them wanting more. I do know that I don’t really want to dwell on this movie too much because while I thought it was kind of stupid, it was also pretty disgusting. However, I actually disliked this movie so much that I am not sure I will see the remake.
