Re: suggestions on movies you should see...


I think you're right about what Mars said to the blonde sister. That probably scared the hell out of her.

I was referring to what Mars first says when he enters the bedroom. He says it so oddly, that I watched the movie several times and only figured out recently what he said: "Baby's fat. You's [sign in to see URL] juicy."

About Last House: On my DVD, Craven and Cunningham mention that the film's story was inspired by an old folk story(or fairy tale?). It turns out the same story had inspired another film previously, which is probably the Swedish film you mentioned, but I'd have to check the extra features on the DVD again to be sure.

Since hearing of Zombi 2, I don't trust an Italian sequel. In the old days, films had a lot of names which weren't exactly official. I'm pretty sure that if the rights to the film's name haven't been sold, then either Craven or Cunningham would have to be involved in the sequel.

Re: suggestions on movies you should see...


What I do remember was Pluto trying to rape the blonde sister and he went angry after Mars threw him off the girl. I'm not quiet sure Mars actually did rape the sister but it might be possible.

Is Last House on the Left R-rated or unrated? And is this movie very gory exept for the rapes and so on? I heard tLHotL was more an adult movie than actually horror...

I don't recall if Mars raped the blonde sister or not. After what he said to her, she must expect him to come back at any time, though.

Last House is rated R, but I think the DVD is unrated. There is a lot of nudity, rape, violence, and a bit of urinating, but little gore. The deleted/extended scenes are totally disgusting-one of them is a scene of a girl being stabbed repeatedly, then the stabber holds her guts. It's sickening, but that scene has most of the movie's gore. Most of the movie is like an extended scene of sodomy. The gang forces the women to undress, then they force one of the women to urinate. Of course, no one has sex with the girl until she puts her clothes back on. It's all disgusting.

Last house on the left was released by MGM. Why would a company like this release such a shocking movie. TCM 2 okay, but LHotL movie was pretty shocking.

A little gore? I heard at the end someone gets killed by a chainsaw and also someone throat gets slashed.

I heard the mother bits off the penis of one of the guys, is this detailed? What do you see of it or is it off screen? Is it that hard to watch like all the other scenes?

One of the guys commits suicide. Did the parents made him do it? And this scene -I'm wondering, again- is this on screen, when he fires? Comparable to the death of pvt. Steel in Day?

I think that MGM depended on the fact that many people wouldn't see the film. Craven and Cunningham mentioned that the movie was made to be shown at theaters in one particular city. Therefore the movie did not have much opportunity to cause public outrage.

The scenes you mention actually are not so explicit. I don't think the wound is shown in the chainsaw murder. The suicide occurs when the gang member's father tells him to kill himself. He kills himself, but the camera "looks away" while it happens. In the penis-biting scene, only the women's face is shown; she shakes her head and grimaces as if laboring do this. The throat slash is shown quickly as well and without much(if any) blood, for the victim falls backwards into a dirty swimming pool, where she's actually no longer really visible. The deleted scenes are an entirely different matter, though.

Again, there isn't much gore in the film, but there is much violence and sexual depravity. The movie reminds me of the original TCM because early in the movie it becomes obvious that only bad things will happen. Malevolence is promised and then delivered. Unlike TCM, Last House manages a bit of light comedy in a few scenes.
