      I thought it was a great movie.

      Did anyone notice that in Cabin Fever and Last House On The Left they both used alot of the same music?

        i own the movie. i really like it.

        See when i watched it, i put myself back into the 70's. In reality, there were a lot of cuts to the movie because theatres were repulsed by it, and thought that it was lewd. When watching, really put yourself back into that time, i think there were some really intense scenes, like where the one guy makes her urinate herself. it's more about the mindset, and how she is beside her house the whole time.

        I really enjoyed the film. Wes Craven's first!

          I agree. I bought it, watched it once, and have no desire to watch it again.

            Hell yeah, brother..you have your choice of a horror story on almost every news channel..and sadly, unlike the movies, the FX we see on the news are VERY real and people DO die, there are no stuntmen

            Anyhow, between LHOTH and I Spit On Your Grave, ISOYG was a bit colder in terms of the revenge. That bathtub scene made me wince (not to mention Lorena Bobbitt was probably watching this when she got HER brilliant idea..) Also, drawing my opinion from personal exp. I met the lady who played in ISOYG at onew of the Chiller cons' and she's the last person you'd expect to see do a film like this..couple that with the fact that looks are decieving, and it chills you a bit.

              i rented this twice when i was little and my parents stole it both times and returned it. i finally saw it years later and JoeViturbo is right, it's worthy of a watch but it's nothing spectacular. the scene with the mother at the end still creeps me out though.

                  I have to say, "Last House on the Left" is a guilty pleasure movie. Not saying that I like the idea of gang rape or anything.....I think that the movie struck a chord for the era it was made and it was a pretty controversial movie. The last scene with the parents is my favorite.

                      The more I watch it, the more I like it. Not even close to I Spit On Your Grave, though.

                        I felt like I was watching a snuff film…

                        That’s why I enjoyed it.

                            Very ordinary and overrated, since it was banned here at one stage i expected it to be far more brutal but it was weak and the dumb ass cops pissed me off.

                              yeah, those cops ruined the movie. However, I still enjoyed it. It's worth a watch, but as mentioned in an earlier post, I wouldnt recommend buying it - unless you see it for an unbeatable price, of course.

                              I havent seen it in a while...i should pop it in tomorrow.hmmm....

                                The MGM DVD is $10, it doesn't get much cheaper than that.

                                Anyway, I find the film a classic. David Hess plays one of the screens ultimate sleazebags. The film is very mean-spirited (when the dumb-ass cops aren't around) and I think it still holds up today. I'd be willing to bet considering the subject matter that the film today would still get an NC-17. It's definitely not gory or scary, but it isn't meant to be either. It has alot of bite with the rape/torture/humiliation scenes as it is. You will never see a film play your local multi-plexes today with extended rape scenes like that.

                                I'd recommend anyone who liked the film check out the recently released Criterion DVD of The Virgin Spring. That is the film that inspired the story for Last House on the Left and is a classic in it's own right. Way ahead of it's time. It stars the venerable Max von Sydow.
