essential viewing for the Last House fan
12 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Szulkin's featurette is a must-watch companion to your viewing of LHOTL. For fans of Szulkin's amazing book on the film, it's great to hear much of the material from the book coming straight out of the mouths of the sources themselves. Whereas most of these DVD-extra documentaries are "one viewing" affairs, I find myself checking this one out again whenever I watch LHOTL. As always, David Hess is endlessly entertaining and Craven and Cunningham are far more open about the making of the film than one would expect. But, for me, it's especially great to hear from some of the other stars, like Lucy Grantham and Marc Sheffler, who didn't do much in the business beyond this film. This is where Szulkin's documentary really goes beyond other pieces on the film. Technically, the featurette is well-filmed, nicely edited, and quick moving. For the obsessive completist like me, it could have been longer, but then again, that's what I have Szulkin's book for. For everyone else, it's a fascinating insight into what makes this horrifying movie so compelling.

My grade = A+
