THEY SURE DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO!
19 October 1999 | by (Last House on the Left) – See all my reviews

What a roaring good time! Pure sleaze and degredation, simple and clear cut! In these post-Columbine times, it's good to reminisce and look back at the shock cinema which once was and will never be again. Totally disturbing and unforgettable. It smokes Last House on the Left and Last House on Dead End Street! I just love that wanna-be ABBA music that play in a few scenes! Don't miss it! WARNING: Definitely not for the squeamish or for fans of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.
