With the original being as shocking a film as they come. I thought there was no way this would even come close to making me think the writers and director were crazy. But this was just as savage and brutal. Definitely not for movie fans who are not used to extreme horror. But it was done incredibily. The ending belongs in history books everywhere.

What every parent would do for their child...I saw this movie the night it opened and the audience was a loud one, but when the rape scene came on, total silence. Just because it was so real, and so intense, yet very sad to see, but it happens in reality. Of course it's terrible to see and no one wants to ever experience it, but I'm glad they showed it because it's educational. Def. not for children to watch, but for everyone else to know how a raped victim feels and that it does happen...

Warning this movie is a 17 girl being sodomized on screen. This movie is a disgusting attempt at shocking the audience. We as an audience need to stop paying 10 bucks to directors allowing young girls to be brutally raped and sodomized on screen. It is evil and wrong. If we stop paying the 10 bucks they will stop making these kinds of movies. THis movie is a sexual predators dream.

The Last House on the Left left me feeling unsatisfied. I found that the acting was good. I was impressed with Paxton in her role as the young girl. I thought the actors who potrayed the heartless murders were excellent. You could just feel how cold hearted those people were. Tha acting was the only great part about this movie. In my opinion the story line lacked. It didn't keep me entertained and was very slow. I know most were disturbed by the rape scene as I was, but yet it is a horror film and they are hearless murderers. Something like that is to be expected. This movies is very hard and cold, there is nothing humorous about it. The killing/torturing scenes were very gruesume, but they were fun at the same time. All in all, I would wait until this is available to rent.

For all of you who go on & on about how bad this movie is, check out the original. This movie is a masterpiece in comparison. In the original, the murder, rape & torture of the girls, (neither end up living in the original), is much more drawn out & considerably more brutal, (the psychos make the girls have sex with each other, piss themselves, etc). And then when the bad guys end up at the parents house & the parents discover who they are, it just went downhill from there because any sense of realism flew right out the window.
The part in the original where the mother was giving one of the killers & BJ & bites his junk off & spits it out still stands as a serious low point in Wes Craven's otherwise excellent career.
At least the remake, (although still brutal), didn't feel like it was intentionally just trying to be gross for no reason. Watch the original, then realize that this is one of those rare cases where the remake actually outshines the original.
