Robert Houston was actually the second choice for Bobby Carter and landed the role because the original actor left the production after reading the script. See more »
At the 1 hr 15 min point, Jupiter and Pluto are running down the wash. Just prior to Beast attacking Pluto, you can see a couple of equipment bags belonging to cast or crew sitting at the right side of the wash. See more »
What the hell was that?
Sounded like some sort of animal.
Yeah well, if animals around here are smart enough to run radios we're up shitcreek without a paddle.
You know you never used language like that before you moved to New York City.

Wes Craven's second film is well-crafted and frightening to say the least. LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT was more realistic (almost too much), but this perfect drive-in movie leaves you wanting more. It must have been an unbearable shoot. Check out the 2-disc DVD.
A definite 7 out of 10 with Michael Berryman giving the best performance. Perfect locale in these California mountains that is scarier than the Bates Motel. Great cast with all unknowns. Dee Wallace was quite touching as the young mother and the old Grandpa Fred in the beginning was authentic to the max! Even if you're not a big horror fan, you should check this out late at night. Wes Craven has a good eye and feel for blood relations!
