Wes Craven's first film was a crude but shocking horror opus that, like George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968), became a grind house hit largely because it went much further than terror films before it had been willing to go. Often compared to Ingmar Bergman's stark medieval rape drama The Virgin Spring (1960) (though one wonders whether this was influence or just coincidence), Last House on the Left follows a group of teenage girls heading into the city when they hook up with a gang of drug-addled ne'er-do-wells and are brutally murdered. The killers find their way to the home of one of their victim's parents, where both father and mother exact a horrible revenge. Like Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre two years later, Last House on the Left was an unrelievedly dark vision of contemporary horror that inspired many future films which copied its effects without achieving its visceral impact. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

An exploitation classic!

02/08/2011Lets be honest, if you're buying this movie on blu-ray you already know what to expect. Some bad acting, awkward comedic scenes, graphic violence.
It's old, it's beat up, it's extremely low budget, as another review pointed out yes there is an abundance of grain and things of that nature. Thank god for it, there's no DNR or anything like that added to the film, you're seeing it the way it was meant to be seen. But keep in mind this is an old movie, this certainly isn't demo quality, not something you'd want to pull out to impress your friends with your high-def setup.
If you're like me, and you own the 2002 dvd release, this is definitely a worthy upgrade for the extra features alone. (2 commentaries, multiple featurettes, deleted scene, etc.) The film also has a better (not by much mind you) transfer.
Last House on the Left is a great exploitation film that "inspired" films like House at the Edge of the Park, Last House on Dead End Street, etc. David Hess does wonderful in his role and did a great job on the music in the film. Just do some research and know what you're getting into before you blind buy a film like this.
For the price, this is a great deal, my one and only complaint is that the blu-ray doesn't have a menu, everything is only accessible through the pop-up menu when the film is on.
