The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 


MOVIE REVIEW: Last House On The Left-1972

For Mari's 18th birthday, she and her friend Phyllis are planning to leave their rural town to see a rock concert in the city. Before the concert, they are looking to score some weed. They run into a dude named Junior (Marc Sheffler) who tells them he knows where they can get some and takes them to an apartment where his lecherous pals are waiting. The crew, 3 males and one female, are all escaped convicts and very dangerous. Krug (David Hess), the leader of the gang informs the girls that they won't be leaving any time soon and begins to terrorize them with a serious of threats. Meanwhile, Mari's parents are planning a surprise party for their daughter and become concerned when she doesn't come home. The next day Mari and Phyllis are tossed into the trunk of a car and the crew takes them deep into the woods, where the car stalls. The terrorizing continues in the woods until tragedy strikes. The crew discovers a house in the woods and asks the residents for help with their stalled car. Lo and behold.....the crew have stumbled across the home of (insert suspenseful music here) MARI! Will Mari's parents discover the crew's evil deeds and retaliate or will they become victims themselves? No more spoilers from me y'all!

This is Wes Craven of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" fame first film. This film is 10 times scarier than Freddy Kruger because this shit could actually happen. I consider this film the "Grand Guignol" of horror. Even though I've seen this film several times the impact never diminishes. I could just feel the despair the girls in the movie felt. Certain parts of this film are just plain uncomfortable to watch. It's probably due to the realistic quality of the film, which was filmed on a shoestring budget. The settings and wardrobe are straight up 70's, complete with wood paneling and bell bottoms. There are hilarious parts to the film as well, mainly the goofy music which was scored by the lead baddie, David Hess, this helps to ease some of the tension in the film. Wes Craven went on to direct many horror classics such as Scream, The Hills Have Eyes, The Serpent and The Rainbow etc.. but this one is still my absolute favorite. Contains strong violence, nudity, and foul language. Ladies, don't go looking to buy weed from strange dudes, once you find you a good weed man, keep him!

VERDICT: 4 Soul Claps
