If you enjoy watching women being raped and tortured to the most inappropriate music imaginable, this is for you.

The film is violent and seedy, an atmosphere made more effective by the use of unknown actors and a semi-documentary style... But Craven also introduces the kind of grace notes that he would use throughout his career.

A hugely significant and relevant piece of horror history for a multitude of reasons.

Indelibly scummy, Wes Craven's freshman shocker is less a rip-off of The Virgin Spring than a purposefully degraded update, with the medieval barbarism of the original cannily transplanted to Vietnam-era America.

It's pretty to look at and ugly to digest.

[Its] indictment of the human capacity for hatred and violence is nothing next to its status as a long lost Keystone Kops feature cut together with the world's worst folk musical.
June 13, 2013
A piss poor horror film with terrible production qualities.
September 27, 2011
A depraved exploitation film specifically designed to shock and repulse viewers...also a cultural artifact reflective of and reactive to the time it was made... [Blu-ray]

An ugly, disturbing, passionately conceived cult favorite, Last House on the Left is much more complex (albeit crudely made) than its controversial reputation would suggest.
September 26, 2007
It isn't artistically adroit, but if success in this genre is counted by squirms, it's a success.
September 26, 2007
Sartorially dated certainly, but still powerful, disturbing and raw.
July 23, 2007
Craven and company tap into something hot, dark and deep.
June 14, 2007
if one is not disgusted enough to stop watching, one is left wishing that the movie would show more than it does
May 26, 2006
It's disgusting and gripping at the same time.
February 9, 2006
Craven's cold, flat style of filming emphasises the fact that the violence dehumanises not only the victims but the aggressors.

The party who wrote this sickening tripe and also directed the inept actors is Wes Craven.
