This is very likely the best remake I've seen in a looooong time. It goes beyond the original Wes Craven film and turns it in to a film you'll enjoy especially with the Mrs. or the Mr. on the coach next to you.

This movie could've been really great except the added some things that they really didn't need to and it brought the movie down for. Good story line though.

Rape/Revenge Remake?

This film had me very confused when I first heard about it. How does one remake one of the most extreme rape/revenge flicks from the 70s? Along with I Spit On Your Gave & Thriller: A Cruel Picture Last House is considered to be one of those films that quite a few people find very hard to watch. The original is best known also for being the first film directed by Wes Craven and is a true classic of the horror genre.

The remake doesn't hold up to the original. The problem is the happy ending. By allowing two characters to live who die in the original (the daughter & druggie son), the remake fails to capture the true horror of the situation and seems to be a cop out. The death by microwave sequence is also really lame.

This movie was kind of out of left field to me. As somebody who never saw the original I was excepting this to be like "The Strangers" with Liv Tyler. This movie was nothing like that though. This movie is very in your face with a lot of horrible imagery. Everything from a girl being stabbed in the stomach to an outright rape. The movie does a great job of building the characters and the acting is solid with the exception of Paige (Martha McIsaac) and Sadie (Riki Lindhome). The thing that actually bothered me the most was the very last scene. The move had a very solid ending and it fades to black only to come back on a microwave and the villain. I'm not here to spoil it to you but it was one of the only useless moments that was only in the movie to pad running time and add gore. Overall this movie is pretty solid and well worth a watch.

Microwaves pop more than just popcorn
Monkdude | Hampton, Virginia | 06/28/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left was released in 1972 and I heard from many people who were old enough to see it when it first came out (like my dad) that it was the most shocking thing anyone had ever seen. To this day the original is still a raw and often disgusting piece of cinema, so being that in 2009 films can push the envelope even more, I didn't know how far this thing would go.

It's shocking, brutal and gross, but it didn't just go the buckets of blood route. Yes, there is some gore, but compared to films like Hostel and SAW this is quite tame. What does get under your skin is the rape scene. I read that some people witnessed others leave the theater at this point and they never came back. I guess they didn't see the original or read up on what they paid to see before plopping in their seat. It shows little skin compared to the 1972 version, but it's a long scene that is painful to watch.

The cast is quite good, though most are actors whose names you won't know. The father, played by Tony Goldwyn, and the leader of the killers, played by Garrett Dillahunt were the standouts.

For a film as gritty as this one, the cinematography is polished and takes away a little bit of the raw power that the original had. I actually don't think Wes Craven's 1972 flick holds up well today and thought this remake was better.

Make sure you are in the right frame of mind before seeing this one. By that I mean, don't watch The Last House on the Left and expect to be in a good mood when you leave. While it's a pleasure to see the parents take out the villains one by one to avenge their daughter, you will leave the theater looking for the bright sun to make you feel clean again. Too bad it was raining when I got out. Don't worry, I think I'll be okay."
Best re make in years

"Watched this picture a few days ago and it is simply facinating in the mood it creates.The original was in all fairness brilliant for it's time but a re make for the new generation was long overdue and boy did they get it right.The rape scene is extremely tough to stomach and the gore factor is certainly not easy on the eyes but the revenge driven parents are a joy to watch for fans of this genre.Very satisfying ending.For the few out there who have not seen the original i would reccommend watching this version and please keep an open mind.To summarize...this picture can be extremely disturbing from time to time but the end result makes the ride worthwhile.Keep a special place in your mind for this style of horror/thriller as it won't leave you easily.Definitely one for the books."
In some ways, better than the 72 version.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The 72 version was good, but this one was darker, the rape scene was less graphic, the outcome was better-not getting the police involved was a nice touch and the revenge tactics were graphic but not nauseating, strangely enough, I expected somewhat worse, the actors do a nice job, the script is good, but I can't recommend either version to under 18 year olds."
