Well, this was horrible!!!!!!
The only thing that makes me give it 1 star is the acting of the blond girl. Her screams feel realistic.
Anything else in the movie is just awful.
DeFalco or whatever the hell your name is...you're a hack and the biggest freaking tard ever! Showing off your muscles in a morgue???!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA
This is another film that's supposed to be a message about toture porn instead of simply being toture porn. The film begins with a written message saying so and hopes that by alerting parents and potential victims to the scaries out there, maybe it will save a life.
What a joke. F*** you, you pussy filmmaker. Who cares if Roger Ebert didn't like your film? I didn't like it either because it totally sucked. And you made it suck more with your weakness.
[font=Times New Roman][color=#000000][size=4] OH!!! That?s right! It?s because I HAVE SEEN THIS FILM BEFORE! IT CAME OUT IN 1972 AND WAS CALLED [i]THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT.[/i] The thing that REALLY made me put this film in a low score category was the fact that the director, David DeFalco (who dresses like a wanna-be WWF goon in all the special features) doesn?t have the jewels to ADMIT this is a remake. If they (I include his producer here) had just been honest ANYWHERE in the special features and said they had remade LHOTL because they liked it or wanted to ?modernize? it or whatever, I would have given the movie at least one or two more points. The working title was [i]The House in the Middle of Nowhere[/i] and originally the cast included David Hess who played ?Krug? in LHOTL for crying-out-loud! This is a remake and yet DeFalco acts like he has reinvented the Horror genre with this film.[/size][/color][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][color=#000000][size=4] The special features include a blurb where DeFalco and one of the film?s co-producers ?answer? to a movie review written by Roger Ebert. All through their explanations and attempts at defending their movie they kept talking about their ?vision.? ?Our vision? this and ?our vision? that. I just shook my head. As far as I could tell all of this was Wes Craven?s vision since it was originally his plot and this movie copies it almost scene for scene through most of it. DeFalco tries to claim they based the Chaos character on ?Pee Wee Gaskins.? Donald Gaskins was a serial killer all right. It is thought he may indeed have eaten parts of some of his victims while he tortured them. That?s about all the connection I could barely make to the main character of this film.[/size][/color][/font]
[font='Times New Roman'][color=#000000][size=4] As a cautionary tale, it is useless because other films have done it before and done it better. It does not shock. It does not frighten. It certainly doesn?t do anything better or even that differently than [i]Last House on the Left[/i] did back in 1972. Even if the filmmakers wont admit it, this movie is a remake and it?s a remake that didn?t need to be done. The attempt to connect this film to real life events is laughable and despite DeFalco?s claim in the features that he is the ?future of horror? this film is useless sexploitation trash, not a real horror movie. If you really want a shocking (when it was released) cautionary tale, find and watch the original. Let this one gather dust on a warehouse shelf.[/size][/color][/font]
