While this remake or Craven's 1972 classic is by no means watered down, it takes a different approach to the premise that allows it to stand on its own.

Last House is slicker than Craven's 1970s drive-in classic original, but it doesn't hold back. It kicks you right in the face on the some of the sequences actually. Garrett Dillahunt is a chilling Krug as well.

It may not have the same impact as it had back in 1972, [but] has lost none of its power, its relevance. [Full review in Spanish]

Dennis Iliadis does a facelift to the Craven film's squalid camp. [Full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2020
The film's most unexpected strength, and the one most necessary for it's success, is the quality of acting on display.
April 24, 2020
Aaron Paul as the uncle and Riki Lindhome as the female companion are good and creepy in a horror film kind of way, but it's Dillahunt that adds just the right mix of real life malice.

[The] Last House On The Left is worth seeing, and it's worth enjoying. But after it costs you a few hours of sleep and a careful examination of your own moral compass, ask why this film wasn't just a little bit more.

It's those small actor-y moments, along with some of Dennis Iliadis' directorial choices, that elevates Last House above so many other horror remakes.
April 24, 2020
Director Dennis Iliadis polishes up Craven's template to a lethal shine.
October 20, 2015
The director, Dennis Iliadis, is exactly the right type of person to helm an upgrade of this manner: he is a genuine fan of the source.
August 28, 2015
A fascinating and confrontational horror film that deals with terrors a lot more chilling than some dude swinging a machete.
March 1, 2011
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.
May 29, 2010
An utterly stellar revenge picture.
April 15, 2010
As remakes go, Last House On The Left is at least a decent addition to the 1972 classic.
December 17, 2009
This version is a capably, confidently, and chillingly effective opportunity to place ourselves in the worst possible shoes for a length of time.
October 22, 2009
Remaking Last House on the Left seemed like a dubious proposition at best...yet somehow the new HOUSE works better than expected.
September 16, 2009
... superior [to the original] in that it makes clear the conflicting justification and degradation of the retaliation, establishing a grayer level of morality.
June 19, 2009
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.
June 15, 2009
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.
June 12, 2009
A grimly effective new version of the notorious Last House On The Left.
