What Culture

The remake deviates from its source material, giving something new for fans of the original to enjoy/moan about, and employ some imagination with a few of the killings.

As remakes go, Last House On The Left is at least a decent addition to the 1972 classic.

This version is a capably, confidently, and chillingly effective opportunity to place ourselves in the worst possible shoes for a length of time.

Remaking Last House on the Left seemed like a dubious proposition at best...yet somehow the new HOUSE works better than expected.

... superior [to the original] in that it makes clear the conflicting justification and degradation of the retaliation, establishing a grayer level of morality.

Given my particular distaste for both remakes and rape-revenge movies, I was as surprised as anyone to find that this is a better horror movie than it probably should be.

in its way [the film] out-Hanekes Haneke (without feeling like a lecture), by confronting us in the end with what we expected (and possibly also desired) all along from this kind of movie.

A grimly effective new version of the notorious Last House On The Left.

Dennis Iliadis's remake retains its ferocious power and provocative themes, and thanks to a focused script that unfolds in real time, it ratchets up the suspense and sucks us into a remorseless cycle of violence and revenge.

Its biggest shock is that there's much to praise, with a couple of stellar performances complementing the mounting tension and intriguingly twisting narrative.

Director Iliadis succeeds by building tension and putting everyone at unease rather than grinding out cheap shocks.

As pointless remakes go, this is actually pretty good, thanks to strong performances, impressive camerawork and stylish direction.

This remake by Dennis Iliadis cost a great deal more than Craven's $100k and in many respects is an upgrade. What it lacks in the shock-of-the-new it makes up for with a more rounded storyline.

More a thriller about family ties taken to unimaginable extremes than an attempt to engage with any real subtext.

There's something admirable about a film that so effectively taps into a viewer's primal instincts.

Brutal. Graphic. Disturbing. The remake of "Last House on the Left" is all those things. And, oh yes, this adults-only story is ancient.
