I’m a stranger to Last House on the Left and it’s subsequently endless knockoffs. Being a cinephile that caters more towards horror and genre films, it’s odd that I’ve never sat to down to experience said films (although I own them) myself. Night Train Murders is a film made solely to cash in on Wes Craven’s 1972 shocker, itself a pseudo knockoff as it’s borrows heavily from Ingmar Bergman’s The Virgin Spring. Whereas Last House and the films that followed goals where to disgust, Night Train Murders switches it up by being sharp and professional, with it’s fair share of nasty moments.

DVD: DVD: Night Train Murders

Released in America under titles like New House On The Left and Second House On The Left, the 1975 Italian exploitation film Night Train Murders crudely follows the template for Wes Craven’s notorious 1972 rape-revenge thriller The Last House On The Left. Act one: Two attractive young women venture off on their own. Act two: Sadistic thugs subject them to violence, degradation, and sexual assault, then leave them for dead.

Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Cult Films of All Time: #43 – Wes Craven’s ‘The Last House on the Left’

The Last House on the Left

Directed by Wes Craven

Screenplay by Wes Craven

1972, USA

Much like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and I Spit On Your Grave, Last House on the Left is a prime example of the discrepancy of censorship in independent horror films. The film developed such a bad reputation that it was banned in several countries due to scenes of sadism and violence, and in 1982 was put on the “video nasties” list by the Department of Public Prosecutions. But thanks to critics such as Mark Kermode and Roger Ebert, who praised the film as an important piece of work, it eventually picked up a rabid cult following, and is still ranked by mane as one of Craven’s best films.

Loosely based on Ingmar Bergman’s The Virgin Spring, the exploitation flick follows two teenage girls (on route to score some weed before a rock concert), who
