Darren Bousman on

The Last House on the Left

Released 1972
Distributor Hallmark Releasing

“Keep repeating, It’s Only a Movie….” Wes Craven’s notoriously nasty, some say degrading, Vietnam-era reworking of The Virgin Spring expanded  the envelope for shocking depictions of depravity onscreen. Shot for peanuts in 16mm and originally relegated to grindhouses and drive-ins, it has since emerged as something of a classic and was remade in 2009.
