Produced for the 30th anniversary of the film's theatrical release, this documentary gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a film about brutal murder and even more brutal revenge ... See full summary »
After his latest film is met with horrible reviews, Able Whitman sets out to prove the critics wrong by finding inspiration in his cast and crew. Sometimes great art requires great sacrifice, and the director always gets final cut.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
Celluloid Crime of the Century is a fascinating look back at the making of The Last House on the Left, the original version
Just watched this DVD extra on the unrated disc of The Last House on the Left. Among the interviewees: writer/director Wes Craven, producer Sean S. Cunningham, and the players David Hess, Fred Lincoln, Marc Sheffler, Jeramie Rain, and Martin Kove. Fascinating anecdotes abound, not to mention revelations of how some of the cast members previously knew each other. Most interesting to me was that the one who played Junior became a television writer of various sitcoms I watched growing up and that the one who played Weasel did porn before and after his LHOTL role and considers that one the one he's most ashamed of! Other extras on the DVD that I enjoyed include "Still Standing: The Legacy of The Last House on the Left" and "Scoring Last House" concerning Hess' involvement of writing and recording the songs in the movie.
