    The Last House on the Left has must-see written all over it for the horror fanboy. Written and directed by Wes (Nightmare on Elm Street) Craven, and produced by Sean (Friday the 13th) Cunningham, Last House will surprise even the most jaded horrorphile with brutality and sheer raw terror.

    Not as much a horror picture as an exploitation-style revenge flick along the lines of I Spit On Your Grave, Last House's lineage has even bluer blood than that of Craven and Cunningham. As Craven explains in the featurette, Last House on the Left is his rewrite of Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring.

    Two suburban girls on their way to a concert get picked up by a carload of psychos on a tear that make Mickey and Mallory's run look like The Sugarland Express. Frankly the only reason this picture gets filed in the horror section stems from the haunting feeling the film leaves with the viewer. Every assault simultaneously violates and implicates the viewer until you are left on the couch unsure of what to think of yourself or the film.

    The picture itself benefits from the rawness of an extremely talented amateur work, which is essentially what it is. For folks that have already experienced this movie there are plenty of great extras, including a classic trailer and recent interviews with most of the people involved in making the film.

    The extras let us in on much of the behind the scenes process - some of which I almost wish I hadn't learned. Namely that Sandra Cassel did not wear any tubes under her pants in one of the films prime moments. The "Forbidden Footage" disappoints as it consists simply of raw footage from the more intense scenes without the audio track.

    Overall, the picture should interest anyone who has enjoyed any of Craven's films or really wants to test their mettle against one of the most mentally gruesome pictures ever made. A date movie this ain't, but it is a must see for indie film geeks and a must own for Craven fans.
