More a suspense thriller than the horror film it is made out to be: this is a higher budget remake of the 1972 film of the same name.
Dr John Collingwood (Tony Goldwyn) - together with his wife, Emma (Monica Potter) and their teenage daughter Mari (Sara Paxton) - head out on vacation to their lake house. Shortly after arriving, Mari borrows the family car and drives into the small town nearby to spend time with her friend Paige (Martha MecIsaac.) In the store where Paige works, the two girls encounter Justin (Spencer Trat Clark - a shy teenage youth who is passing through the town, and who invites them to his hotel room to smoke some weed. There, they meet Justin's father, Krug (Garrett Dillahunt,) who, unknown to them, is an escaped convict! Krug has a hard-faced girlfriend, Sadie (Riki Windhome,) who proves herself to be just as unpleasant a character as Krugt himself.
The story is predictable from there on; with the unique twist that when the chips are down, the three Collingwoods - the "Good Guys" - prove that they can be every bit as nasty as the actual villains themselves!
The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari and her friend are kidnapped by a prison escapee and his crew. Terrified and left for dead, Mari's only hope is to make it back to parents John and Emma.
Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe.
And when her family learns the horrifying story, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House on the Left.

Review This Product
Mon, 18 Jan 2010 | Review by: Carlisle Johnson
This dark, brutal thriller is produced by horror master Wes Craven. The movie is actually a remake of Craven's 1972 film of the same name. The original was a shock to the system due to it's intense violence and depravity, and while we've seen more shocking movies since, this new version still manages to provide quite a few jolts.
There is a shockingly violent rape scene which will definitely make you uncomfortable in your seat, as the bad guys are truly despicable people. But once they encounter their victim's parents, the story becomes a tense and thrilling ride which will keep you on the edge.
Not for the faint-hearted, but this is truly one of the more exciting suspense thrillers I have seen in ages.
