Last House on the Left (1972)

1972 Horror, Thriller

User Score: 50/100


A pair of teenage girls are headed to a rock concert for one's birthday. While trying to score marijuana in the city, the girls are kidnapped by a gang of psychotic convicts.

Extremely graphic shocker written and directed by Wes Craven and produced by Sean S. Cunningham featuring chainsaw killings, disembowelment, and castration. Two girls are kidnapped by a gang of escaped convicts and subjected to demeaning torture and repeated rapes before their brutal deaths. However, the convicts accidentally take refuge at their victims home only to have the girls’ parents exact revenge. Strangely compelling, this movie pushed the boundaries of acceptable horror to the limit and is not for those without a strong stomach.
