I Watched Last House on the Left REDUX

Oh, hi. Yes, I’m recycling an old post. It’s been that kind of week, month, year. Sorry, my peeps. Your Aunt JD WILL be back, and better than ever, very shortly.

In the meantime, please enjoy my review of the awesome horror classic Last House on the Left. They recently dared to remake this (and I dared to watch it — BLAH! Where’s the vengeful blow job?!) so maybe this is somewhat relevant.

It’s the third post I ever wrote for my humble blog, so maybe most of you haven’t read it.

And finally! (Geez, I could’ve just made all this introductory stuff into a post.) Two questions:

1. Would you rather read a recycled post or dead air?

2. I had to boot Disqus, as many people were complaining that it didn’t work for them.

(I know. No. 2 isn’t a question. But it could be, if you read it with the appropriate inflection.)

Catch, catch, my horror taxi
I fell in love with a video nasty


To avoid fainting, keep repeating, “It’s only a movie . . . it’s only a movie . . .”

The Challenge

As all true horror buffs know, The Last House on the Left (1972) is a must-see cult classic. More a low-budget (albeit sickening) drama than an actual horror film, it has been described as

a supremely schizophrenic movie, alternating awkward scenes of bad comedy with gruesome and unsettling moments of violence that reach a nasty level of documentary realism.

Bring it on! Except . . .

I’ve been reluctant to watch this must-see cult classic. It keeps getting moved to the bottom of my “Gross, Scary, Awful Movies” list. I have a high tolerance for gore and scares, but Last House comes under the heading of “disturbing.” There’s a difference between scary and disturbing. Scary can be exhilarating, fun, an over-the-top adrenalin rush. Disturbing can leave you feeling sad and sick and sort of lost. SciFilm says the movie is for people who are

willing to be disturbed, to be angered, to be moved in a detrimental way by cinema. It is not for the thrill-seekers or gorehounds really, because there is no sense of outrageousness here. . . . The outrageousness is in its reality, and it is an ugly reality.

OK, now I have to watch it. Maybe some of us need to see these “ugly realities” on film to remind us how lucky we are not to have to see them in real life.

The Movie

Director Wes Craven introduces the film by recommending that viewers remove small children and “innocent animals” (hee!) and taking a tranquilizer (which I TOTALLY did) before watching. Two teenage girls, Phyllis and Mari, are on their way to a rock concert (Blood Lust!) when they are kidnapped by a group of sex-crime fugitives. Now here I have to interject. Nothing would have happened to these girls if they weren’t trying to score some grass. They asked the wrong guy and got pulled into a nightmare. Kids, if you must do drugs, don’t follow the dealer into his apartment/sex-lair where his gang members are waiting to punch you in the stomach.

When Mari doesn’t show up the following morning, her parents are understandably concerned. The tubby sheriff and his hayseed deputy (“comic” relief) aren’t much help. Little do any of them know that the two girls have been dragged by the gang (Krug, Weasel, Junior, and Sadie) into the woods right by Mari’s house, where they are tortured, raped, . . . and finally killed.

OK, that was bad. Disturbing in a quiet, low-tech, no-special-effects way. But here comes the payoff. The blood-splattered killers clean themselves up and head to Mari’s parents’ house, posing as insurance salesmen (!) whose car has broken down. They’re invited to stay the night—in Mari’s room!!! Mom overhears them mention the murdered girls and puts two and two together. She and her husband plot their revenge . . .

. . . which includes chainsaws, knives, and a blow job that ends in the worst possible way. Yay, Mom and Dad! You’re psycho-killers now, too!

The Opinion

Maybe I’m almost completely desensitized, but this didn’t bother me as much as I’d expected. Only when I thought the family dog was gonna get it did my finger hover over the fast-forward button. Don’t get me wrong—I don’t enjoy watching teenage girls get tortured and killed. But in addition to the admittedly disturbing scenes, there’s quite a bit of humor, both intentional and un-, bizarro music, and deliciously terrible acting. Plus, yes, I think I am completely desensitized. I’m sure if I’d seen this in 1972 my head would have exploded. As it was, I just felt sort of queasy and more determined than ever to stay away from heavy metal rock concerts and guys named Weasel.

Fun Facts about Last House on the Left

    The sound track listing includes “Phyllis Spills Her Guts” and “Etude for Chainsaw / Goodbye, Dick”
    Some of the original titles: Night of Vengeance, Sex Crime of the Century, and Grim Company
    According to imdb.com, here’s what some of the cast members have been up to:

  • Sandra Cassel, who played Mari, was apparently so genuinely scared during the filming that she walked out at one point. She went on to star in Legacy of Satan and Massage Parlor Hookers.
  • David Hess, who played Krug, the main baddie, has been on episodes of “Manimal” and played “Robaire” in Valley of the Dolls.
  • Fred J. Lincoln (Weasel) has an impressive list of directing credits, including The Last Whore House on the Left, as well as a part in the classic Edward Penishands 3 (look it up yourself, sicko).
  • Jeramie Rain, whose psycho-lesbian character is described as “animal-like” in the movie, married . . . Richard Dreyfuss!
If you want to watch Last House on the Left:
  • Nothing really bad happens until about 00:28:25.
  • If you’re only interested in watching Weasel get his dick bitten off (sorry, spoiler!), fast-forward to 1:13:30.
  • Enjoy the DVD extras, including
      Lively commentary by Craven and producer Sean Cunningham
      Outtakes & Dailies: no sound, but you get to see the 7-minute “Murder Sequence,” which includes the famous disembowelment scene—the intestines of which, you may be pleased to know, are actually condoms filled with peanut butter and jelly
      Forbidden Footage features Craven and Cunningham expressing disbelief that anyone would want to censor their film (INTESTINES, people!) as well as interviews with some of the cast. Who haven’t aged particularly well.
  • Read Roger Ebert’s review (3 and 1/2 stars!)
  • Watch the trailer
  • Read the book
  • Buy tranquilizers

And remember, it’s only a movie . . . it’s only a movie . . .

    Yay for booting Disqus. I personally do not care for it AT ALL. Just saying.

    And I didn’t read any of the scary post below your introduction as I never, under any circumstances, (NO, not even for you, JD!) watch or read anything remotely categorized as Horror.

    Oh, and dead air is fine as long as you let us know everything is F&D.

  3. 3 Jen

    I love recycled posts! Dead air is okay too but some of the older stuff can be lots of fun and not everyone has read it. I hadn’t read this one. Which leads me to …

    This Movie!

    I watched this movie when I was 17ish. A bunch of friends and I were staying at our cabin without parents. It was a simpler time back then. Anyway, we rented this movie because it was by Wes Craven, the guy who gave us Nightmare on Elm Street. A truly funny but scary movie. Last House on the Left was disturbing, not funny. Disturbing the way Deliverance was disturbing.

    Being in the woods to watch this movie didn’t help, it scared me but it also made me think. If my daughter had been murdered could I give a vengeful blow job? I didn’t have a daughter then but I could certainly understand why the mom might want to do that.

    As I recall the girls were hitchhiking, by the time I saw this movie no one hitch hiked anymore.

    I couldn’t watch the remake and there is no way in hell I could ever watch the original again.

    I’m a fan of recycled posts.

    Great review. I love to read spoilers of horror movies, now that I’ve finally discovered and accepted that I can’t watch them without totally freaking out.

    And now I want to make some intestines.

    hello! i don’t mind the repeats, and i appreciate the little addendum that everything is okey dokey.

    i really don’t like disturbing or reality horror movies. i don’t like movies that could really happen. then chances of godzilla running down my street are pretty slim.

    and having been a teen age girl on the way to many, many rock concerts…well, i really would not like this movie. and my advice is to wait to get your drugs until you get in the concert hall. there was always some body willing to pass the joint.

    I’m glad to see Disqus go. I couldn’t comment on your last post because Disqus was acting all wonky.

    I have never seen either version of this movie. This is one in a loooong list of movies that I wouldn’t have minded seeing but never did. I don’t go to the movies often (so expensive) and I don’t rent movies either. I’m missing so much! Luckily I have you to watch them for me. I really need to resubscribe to Netflix!!

    Recycled posts are fine by me (they’re all funny), but I understand that sometimes dead air is all you have time to deal with, too. When I first found your blog, I read the entry that had led me here (from Blogtations), then started at the beginning of the archive, so this was one of the first few posts I read. It completely cracked me up, even though I hadn’t seen the movie. And, honestly, I probably won’t see the movie. I watched and read a lot of horror stuff when I was younger, but I seem to have lost the taste for it.

    I’m a mess after having read that description. Husband likes his horror movies, but I don’t need to be scared like that. Especially not in disturbing ways. Ugh.

    p.s. I love the recycled post. Yours are always stellar and if someone hasn’t seen one before it’s new and awesome to them! I’m having a hard time blogging lately, too, and was thinking about reposting some of my horrible kid pictures. Redhead Ranting got me on that kick with her survival post.

    Barb at WillThink4Wine: Just curious: why don’t you like Disqus? I really liked it (liked being able to have conversations and reply directly to people), but a lot of folks said it wouldn’t let them comment. I figured, WordPress doesn’t have the ideal commenting system, but at least it WORKS! (And I understand you’re not wanting to read the scary stuff. That’s why I do it for you.)

    Jen: Oh, I’m so glad I reposted this! I used to hitchhike as a teen, but I sure as hell wouldn’t do it now. Also, I don’t think I could give a vengeful blow job, but you never know. And you’re absolutely right in comparing this with the equally disturbing Deliverance. That same sense of sick dread. Ugh.

    Two Hands and a Roadmap: Mmmm. Intestine sandwiches are my favorite. If you can’t watch a horror movie, then reading spoilers/reviews is the best way to enjoy them.

    puglette: Good advice! Yes, youth of today! Wait until you get to the show! Don’t accept drugs from strangers. Actually, if you’re youth, don’t take drugs at all. Heh. I agree with you. I don’t like “reality” horror movies either, all that much. I really regretted watched “Harry, Portrait of a Serial Killer,” because that could happen. Brrrr.

    Surfie: I’m glad you’re able to comment now. That’s why I had to get rid of Disqus. Too many people having problems. You don’t rent movies? YES you need Netflix NOW! Go! Do it! And put this at number one in your queue. But don’t bother with the remake.

    absepa: Aw. Thanks for flipping thru my archives. This is one of my favorite posts, maybe because it was one of my first and also because for me, movie reviews are hard to write. In the past year, I’ve been less and less impressed with the horror movies I’ve seen. Asian filmmakers are making the best ones, but even those get old after a while.

    babs – beetle: I’m sorry! I knew you’d be upset. I’ll eat a worm if it’ll make things better.

    Jenn of Many Cabbages: I guess I think of all my readers as my smart young children. I don’t know why. Regardless, it by no means obligates you to call me Aunt JD.

    Kathy: I freaking loved Redhead’s “How Did We Survive” photo post. It made me want to go thru my baby book and see if there were any photos of me lying facedown in a bassinet or maybe in an oven or something.

  12. 12 Ron

    Well, since I’m fairly new to your blog I haven’t read this post, so it was like reading a brand new one for me.


    Especially this part…….

    “and a blow job that ends in the worst possible way. ”

    I take it he never climaxed?!?!?


    I enjoy reading recycled posts, in fact I’ve done the same thing on my own blog. But, I also understand a time for dead air too. Listen, I’ll stop by to read you ANYTIME, girl. So, do whatever feels good for you.

    You and I should be listed as the two most comment system changing bloggers in the blogworld. HA! But, hey…we’ll never know unless we try them, right? Several people I blog with use Disqus and I’ve only had a couple instances when it didn’t work while leaving a comment. I actually like the commenting system you already have. I wish Blogger would use the same one, because as we all know….Blogger’s commenting systems SUCKS a big one.

    Anyway, hope you’re having a great week…..X

    Funny. I just recycled an older post too before making my blog rounds and here it is you doing the same thing!

    And, yay! The wicked Disqus is dead! It melted! It melted! An old song comes to mind… “Celebrate good times–c’mon! It’s a celebration!” It’s gonna be all right. We’re gonna celebrate tonight! I didn’t put those last two lines in quotes because I don’t remember if those are the actual lyrics or not. Anyway, “Celebrate good times–c’mon!”

    So, are you using an ancient version of WordPress that doesn’t have threaded comments? There was a plugin available before it was built-in to later versions of WordPress.

    hello again! i am glad to see discus go, it was a very stubborn little program. it would lock up and you would have to log in again, sometimes even rewrite the comment. and heaven knows i can only come up with the funny stuff once!

    also, i forgot to comment about the revenge bj…this reminded me of the book “the world according to garp.” garp’s wife is having an affair and is in her car in her driveway giving her lover a bj. garp comes home and slams into the car and she bites her buddy’s penis off.

    wonderful book, much better than the movie.

    Ron:Yes, I think we can safely assume that he did NOT climax (or if he did — SICKO!) Thank you for loving my ol’ recycled post and for understanding about dead air. This commenting system is fine, in that it WORKS, but I do miss the threaded comments. I may try something else . . . why not?!

    Jen: Too bad. If you did have a photo, you could start a whole NOTHER blog called “How Did They Survive” and it would be all about pets in danger. Hilarious danger!

    Daisy the Curly Cat: Yay! I’m glad you got a new one. Yes, both you and Harley are still too innocent to watch it. I know you’re not scairt.

    dcr: Yeah . . . I don’t know how accurate your lyrics are either, but who cares? They deliver the message. I’m up to the current (I think) version of WordPress. I’m gonna have to look into threaded comments plugins, because I really liked that about Disqus.

    carissa: The original is, in my opinion, wa-a-a-a-ay creepier than the remake. Watch it tonight! Alone! In the dark! I always love reading imdb.com to see “where are they now” for actors in movies like this. You’re pretty much guaranteed of getting an “Edward Penishands” reference.

    puglette: I don’t want to stress out any of my readers! Leaving a comment should be painless, and I so appreciate all my beautiful commenters. I recently rewatched World According to Garp and I’ve also read the book. I agree. The book is magical. The movie . . . Robin Williams. ‘Nuff said.

  19. 19 Lauren

    Does the disclaimer on “Last House on the Left” mention that disturbed people should not watch the film? If so, I’ll have to pass. Obviously, I haven’t seen it yet. Although, the sedative idea sounds like a good one.

    I haven’t seen any of the films on your list except “Clockwork Orange” but did see “Dusk Till Dawn.” Talk about disturbing. But it also has humor in it. I love creepy movies but blood and guts is tough to swallow. It needs to be sautéed.

    M’Kay, after reading your review, I’m pretty sure I’m never going to watch this. I don’t do rape scenes very well. At all. I got traumatized during Death Wish and haven’t been the same since. So I am wholeheartedly sincere when I say thank you for doing this (however many years ago) so I don’t have to.

  22. 22 Patricia (Picture of Union Jack/Old Glory)

    I’m glad to see Disqus go, but I wish it could be replaced with something similar that, you know, worked. I have too short a memory to remember what the person posted before I read your reply to it separately–it must be the massive amounts of mass media I was exposed to in childhood experiments.

    Interesting about the intestines–I read that in Slumdog Millionare there’s a scene (you know it if you’ve seen it) where a little boy is covered with the contents of an outhouse. I knew this before I watched the film as I saw it on some fine news program (Inside Edition or Access Hollywood–one of those fine news sources) that the ‘contents’ on the child was just peanut butter and chocolate. So I could say ‘it’s just peanut butter and chocolate, it’s just peanut butter and chocolate…’

    I still gagged, probably like that poor woman that did the revenge blow job. I’m not a man, but I can imagine that the word ‘revenge’ paired with ‘blow job’ causes some shrinkage.

  23. 23 Stephanie Barr

    I don’t mind. Not only have I done this, I’ll do it again, though I take stuff from my old blog. Which no longer exists.

    Not fond of horror, though I’m something of an expert with regards to serial killers and their history. Talk about disturbing. I can only expose myself for short periods of time. I get caught up in the pain of victims. I’m sure I’d have a hard time with the movie you watched. Thanks for watching it for me.

    Actually, I’m stealing your premise today. I hope you don’t mind. I’m sure you’ll be glad what I’m doing so no one else has to.

    Bummer about Disqus, though. Can’t you use threaded comments in WordPress? It’s under Settings/Discussion in your Dashboard.

  25. 25 JD

    Lauren: The sedative was an EXCELLENT idea, believe me. And it’s just a bonus for disturbed people even if they DON’T watch the movie. I saw Dusk Till Dawn recently and thought it was pretty good. That’s the one where Salma Hayak turns into a snake-zombie-thing? Oops. Spoiler!

    Margaret (Nanny Goats): Oooh, I’ve never seen Death Wish. But I don’t do rape scenes very well either. Unless, of course, they’re followed by many awesome and violent vengeful acts, which, I believe, is the whole point of Death Wish.

    dcr: Yeah. Someone else pointed that out to me. I felt pretty stupid until I realized that it IS enabled. It’s just not compatible with my theme. Maybe it’s time for a new theme.

    Patricia (Picture of Union Jack/Old Glory): Exactly. There’s got to be an alternative out there. I don’t think I knew about the peanut butter and chocolate, but I did figure it wasn’t . . . you know. The real thing. That would’ve been pretty gross and also unhealthy. I was so disappointed the remake of Last House didn’t include the revenge blow job. It made the horror of what happened previously a little easier to take.

    Stephanie Barr: Serial killers are fascinating, but, yes, only in small doses. Unless they’re fictional. Then: BRING IT! Not really. I prefer over-the-top horror like zombies and supernatural monsters. On my way to check out your “thievery”!

    cardiogirl: HA! Yes, the old stuff holds up pretty well, I think. Thanks for the “bravo.” It’s so true. I cannot watch animals in distress — not even make-believe. My theme apparently doesn’t support threaded comments. I didn’t even KNOW that was an option until people started suggesting it. I’ll keep looking.

    Oh my God, I saw this movie like three years ago when my girlfriend at the time was all: “Oh, I heard about this movie. Watch it!”

    And that was one of the parts I hated the most – as a woman. I know that makes me strange. I guess I knew the rest, technically, was wrong. The “celebrated” and expected by me revenge just creeped me in strange, strange ways. I almost know what it feels like to be a man!
