The Last House on the Left

Directed by Wes Craven
United States, 1972
Horror, Cult


Wes Craven’s infamous 1972 film has accrued a mighty reputation and taken its place among such similarly uncompromising and controversial fare as Driller Killer, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I Spit on Your Grave.

Our take

Wes Craven may now be known for his slyly satirizing Scream series, but what new horror fans forget is that he pioneered the modern horror genre with such enduring terrors as this, his debut (!), and The Hills Have Eyes. A sign of their classic status? They’ve been remade into much worse films!

Critics reviews

Forty-six years after its release, The Last House on the Left remains a ferocious work of sadistic cinema. The film is so unnerving for appearing, on the outset, to have been unintentionally achieved—a flakey, dangerous quality that many contemporary filmmakers unconvincingly attempt to emulate.

The double-edged sword of The Last House on the Left showcases both an (arguably) unwarranted sadism and a credible revenge story; the film’s sheer existence attests to its potency as an attack on the status quo.

A truly uncomfortable film, The Last House on the Left had a naturalistic texture that stood in direct opposition to the deluxe quality of big-studio horror hits like The Exorcist. Notwithstanding its ugliness, it may actually be Craven’s best-directed movie.
