The Last House on the Left (Unrated Collector's Edition) Blu-ray Review

Synopsis: Bold, powerful and starkly realistic, this chilling cinematic debut of horror master Wes Craven ("Scream") is a shocking journey into the heart of evil. Written and directed with almost unbearable dramatic tension (Chicago Sun-Times), "The Last House On The Left" will make you deadbolt your doors and frantically mutter: "It's only a movie it's only a movie it's only a movie!" Easy-going Mari Collingwood and her fun-loving friend Phyllis are on their way to a Bloodlust concert to celebrate Mari's 17th birthday when three escaped convicts kidnap and torture them. But Mari and Phyllis are fighters, and although they are drugged and beaten into unconsciousness, stuffed into a car trunk and driven into the woods for even more brutality, they are still alive...but for how long.

Review:  The Last House on the Left is for the adult thriller fan only!  This remake of the Wes Craven classic entails the downfall of two teen girls that are attacked by a group of cons and the revenge that follows.  The original was during the era of A Clockwork Orange where they were really trying to shock audiences and play to moral limits.  This new film kinda loses that spunk, and its just a hyper-violent action thriller.  The film is available now on blu-ray in this great collector's edition.

The special features on this blu-ray include: "Still Standing: The Legacy of 'The Last House on the Left' with Wes Craven"; "Celluloid Crime Of The Century"; "Scoring 'Last House'"; "Tales That Will Tear Your Heart Out"; "Wes Craven's Annotated Shooting Scripts".

Interest Range: Thriller
