Interesting look at the making of a true shocker
2 January 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting documentary on the making of - and the legends surrounding - Wes Craven's notorious 1972 revenge shocker, the Last House on the Left. Whilst there are no great revelations here, fans of the film will enjoy spending some time with the cast and crew (though the two female victims are noticable by their absence) as they remember their running battles with poor filming conditions, a shoestring budget, Craven's wilfully outrageous script, their own relative inexperience and, of course, the censorship battles and incredible notoriety that followed. They're an interesting bunch - David Hess is particularly good value - but Fred Lincoln comes across as a bitter old man, trying too late to cover his tracks. I laughed a hollow laugh when he said "Last House is the only film I've done that I'm ashamed of" (Lincoln is a veteran of sleazy porn films, most of them hardcore and concerned with explicit S&M) and that Craven's film is "a piece of s**t", directly responsible for "eighty rapes" (who on earth would be collating such information?). The rest of the cast regard the project with rather more good humour. It's a shame Fred couldn't be a little more generous.
