RT on DVD: Final Futurama Flick, Pirates II, and Akira on Blu-ray
Plus two Dario Argento classics and the original Last House on the Left.
Revisit Wes Craven's 1972 horror exploitation classic (if you have the stomach for it) with a new Collector's Edition, released just in time to coincide with next month's remake. The disturbing tale of a band of rapists and murderers hunted by the parents of one of their own victims -- itself an update of Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring -- earned its controversial reputation for portraying particularly grotesque sadism onscreen, though contrary to his assessment of the similarly-themed revenge thriller I Spit on Your Grave, critic Roger Ebert praised Last House as a guilty pleasure "on par with Night of the Living Dead." Owners of previously-issued editions will find much of the same bonus menu materials, though new Craven interviews and select scenes have been added.
