"Chaos", despite being basically a remake of Craven's "Last House on the Left", is quite successful in delivering its intentions. The film sets out to shock and it manages to deliver a powerful sucker punch to the viewer.
From the moment "Chaos" begins, with its almost "public information film" blurb, there's an impending feeling of doom. The movie is quite clear from the onset that this is a warning to youngsters and parents alike. As the film starts to pan out, its resemblance to the earlier Craven film is unmissable.
Kevin Gage's Chaos is a thoroughly unpleasant chap with a penchant for violence. Gage is excellent in the part and is thoroughly believable as this screen psycho.
The whole cast are very good for an independent film of this nature, particularly the actors who play the parents.
7 out of 10. Worthy of a rental.
