This movie has a Rape Scene, you are warned.

I had this on my Netflix queue for a while, and finally got to see it. I really wished I read the reviews PRIOR into watching this movie, but I was afraid of the spoilers. This gave me a typical psychological horror feel of a movie and I was rooting on the girl to get away from her pursuers. I've had my share of horror, slasher, gory films. It wasn't until the rape scene that I wanted to throw out the DVD. I will NEVER be able to get rid of the rape scene and her screams out of my head. It is NOT a pleasant. I do not get WHY do they have to make it so graphic. It's an utterly unnecessary part of the plot. IF the rape needs to be in it, then have the camera zoom out, blurred out so you can see the motions in the background, but you cannot really make it out, and it's obviously the girl ...

very disturbing and well done

This movie was kind of out of left field to me. As somebody who never saw the original I was excepting this to be like "The Strangers" with Liv Tyler. This movie was nothing like that though. This movie is very in your face with a lot of horrible imagery. Everything from a girl being stabbed in the stomach to an outright rape. The movie does a great job of building the characters and the acting is solid with the exception of Paige (Martha McIsaac) and Sadie (Riki Lindhome). The thing that actually bothered me the most was the very last scene. The move had a very solid ending and it fades to black only to come back on a microwave and the villain. I'm not here to spoil it to you but it was one of the only useless moments that was only in the movie to pad running time and add gore. ...

I'd expect a lot more fight outta you, John.

Unnecessary and painfully derivative re- make of Wes Craven’s semi classic and cultish movie “ The Last House on the Left”.
Last House is a well-made revenge thriller with an above average cast but lacks any moral fiber and is painfully unoriginal.
As an exercise in gore-nography, this is a movie, which pulls all the right strings; torture, mutilation and ultra violence abound and throw in a shockingly gruesome final death scene right out of a 1980s video nasty and the sadists get there proverbial moneys worth.
Taken at face value though, Last House has no character development, few shocks and is brutal, nasty and pretty ugly to watch. As with Rob Zombies “Halloween” this is another re-make which quite simply doesn`t hold a candle to the original.

Technically 2nd to last house on the left now.

Now, don't get me wrong; I think Cravens original from '72 can't be touched...and this still holds true. When I first saw the original '72 version it was just plain out disturbing. It was not at all what I was expecting but makes me understand how this was one of the films that makes Craven, Wes Craven.

The 2009 remake took it's artistic license to cater to a newer, more modern, more inpatient crowd needing a little more action, cast members, and fights. I would give this movie 3 out of 5, just because though it was shot well, and a complete movie...it just wasn't anything special to stand out. This is not based on a comparison with the original either, since there were enough things changed in this to basically make it it's own movie and the film makers merely borrowed the movie title...
