  1. Nicole Richie's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Such disruptive language and editing. The cinematography is pure delight.

  2. Rocco's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    An angry, perverse cultural artifact. Craven’s debut is quite primitive in approach, but this is a film with a point of view that feels inextricable from its time period. A dirty exploitation pic that takes the average American family to task for ill-preparing their offspring for the real word horrors that lurk just beyond their doorstep. Anti-Vietnam, certainly. The constantly shifting tone is defiant and purposeful

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Rewatch...this film isn't as good as people remember.

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    A grotty revel in abuse and revenge. Much like many other films then, except that in it’s crude way this is an unknowing pioneer of even crasser exercises to come - although it’s debatable if such a gatekeeper is worth honouring. To be fair it’s parred down & sandpaper-like single mindedness has more honesty in it’s grit than elsewhere, despite the uneven totality (which nullifies the veritie qualities in the end).

  5. Mr. Dude_o_o's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    "Sigmund Fruit". Brutal scenes with funny soundtrack... It sure doesn't sound harmonious. As if the music is there for the compensation for the terror caused by the brutal killings. The scenes where the dying bodies swallowed by the water reminded me of the famous death scene in Altman's MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER.

  6. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Depressing rape-revenge movie about people at their cruelest filmed in almost documentary style and where murder and rape is for once portrayed disgusting and unattractive. Sandra Cassel is heartbreaking as innocent doomed girl forced to perform in sexual activities before death. David Hess is disgusting as the lead killer and gangbang leader.A truly dark movie where any attempt at humor feels forced and wrong.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Oeuvre d'une tension insoutenable où la brutalité atteint certains paroxysmes et la violence soutenue de certaines scènes frise l'insupportable et le malaise... www.cinefiches.com

  9. Jason's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Down to brass tacks: we're aware that this is pretty puerile stuff; that's its selling point. But LAST HOUSE remains a stand-alone kind of sick. Its stark disjointedness of tone and tendency to jocularity keep the viewer in a state of unaccustomed imbalance. And it digs neural grooves. You don't forget it. There's a deep nihilist pleasure here. The movie genuinely seems to be against life. This the Age of Aquarius?

  10. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Somewhat dated, but still extremely powerful and stirring.

  11. Matt Reddick's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    The film that Herschell Gordon Lewis dreamed of making.

  12. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Like 'Easy Rider' this film spawned quite a few imitators, of which I've seen a few. It's source is the 'The Virgin Spring', but it has none of it's magic.

  13. lostlevel's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Sort of terrible but kinda funny.

  14. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

  15. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Despite its plot contrivances and swings into buffoon-comedy, few films show terror as grim and affective. Methodical in its run time, a gritty, docu-drama approach, and ending without a traditional epilogue, this is horror as a reaction: throwing the viewer into disarray. It's so resoundingly haunting, disturbing, and powerful when it's in horror mode that you soon realize the dumb humor actually lets you breathe.

  16. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    1972, dir. WES CRAVEN - 5/10 (USA)

  17. ADZERTY's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Un film à la violence baroque sur le thème sempiternel de la vengeance privée : oeil pour oeil dent pour dent. L'originalité vient de la gaieté presque naïve de la mise en scène et de la maladresse sans doute délibérée du montage et de la direction. Le résultat me paraît mitigé cependant parce que le propos est ambigu et peut-être tout simplement simpliste.

  20. Franck's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Too bad video quality. Was it from a VHS?

  21. the.deft.one's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    Beneath the surface of low-production values that come with Craven’s first feature is a slasher that feels familiar yet refuses to allow you to settle. Constantly flitting between depictions of grave horror and light comedic moments and a score that refuses to reflect the scenes it supports, begs the question whether Last House on the Left is an early masterstroke within the genre that Craven would...

  22. pengecut kau suripto's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    That was really really bad acting and poor directing it would make I Spit On Your Grave looked like an Oscar movie. But that was 70s and it was campy low budget film and i heard some provocative scenes has been edited.

  23. Log Lady's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    I'm all for campy humour, but there's an awkward disconnection here between gruesomeness and comic relief. An unbalanced affair whose classic status I cannot for the life of me understand. There are a couple of quiet and arresting moments that are noteworthy, and I liked that the tension comes from something else than gore. Disturbing and disconcerting? Yes, but as a film somewhat forgettable.

  24. Rattzz Matanzano's rating of the film The Last House on the Left

    The first half is very artistic, and the second half, too undersold...... Still, this is a mostly beautiful picture.
