Horror film icon Wes Craven revisits Last House On The Left, the landmark film that launched his directing career and influenced decades of horror films to follow. Bringing one of the most notorious thrillers of all time to a new generation, he produces the story that explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who harmed their child.
The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari (Sara Paxton) 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 her parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the place she thought she could be safe. When her family learns the horrifying truth, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House On The Left.
My memory banks tell me that I actually haven’t watched the original 1972 film, which is surprising, because I am a huge horror fan, and have seen most of the original Wes Craven cult flicks. But this remakes looks worth the time. It’s due in theaters in Spring 2009.
This will be a sophomore effort for Greek director Dennis Iliadis, who previously helmed a Greek crime drama called Hardcore, with Wes Craven and his partner in gore Sean Cunningham, handling producing duties.
The film also stars Garret Dillahunt, Martha MacIsaac, Riki Lindhome, Spencer Treat Clark, Aaron Paul and Joshua Cox.
