After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Mari Collingwood tells her parents that she is going to the concert of underground band Bloodlust in New York with her friend Phyllis Stone. She borrows the family's car and heads with her friend to a dangerous neighborhood in the city. Meanwhile, the sadistic and cruel escapees Krug Stillo and Fred 'Weasel' Podowski are hidden in a hideout with their partners Sadie (Jeramie Rain) and Krug's addicted son Junior Stillo (Marc Sheffler) after killing two guards and one shepherd in their runaway.

The scene when Weasel walks up to the apartment door when Krug knocks on the door, Weasel asks "Who is it?" In which Krug responds "It's J. Edgar Hoover.". J. Edgar Hoover was the first director of the FBI from 1935 until his death in 1972. He died on May 2nd, 1972, 3 months and 28 days before the film's release. See more »

Ah, it looks like Mari's getting cards from half the civilized world. Mari Collingwood. Mari Collingwood. Mari Collingwood. You'd think she's the only kid to reach the age of 17. Of course she is probably the prettiest piece I've ever seen.

In the 1980s, the American video versions contained additional text after the film had ended, reading: "Coming soon to a theatre near you. From the producers of Last House On The Left, and the director of Friday the 13th Part V, ... The Last House On The Left, Part II. You won't believe your eyes!" (No sequel ever materialized) See more »
I'm laughing myself out of my chair, I can't believe how people here see the symbolism and artistic flair in this 5th rate piece of junk.
I saw Last House on the Left with my cousin and a friend in 1972 at a midnight movie. It was clear to all the teens that this trashy film was simply made to throw a few shivers into us. Seriously, the packed theater was roaring with laughter at the horrible acting, lousy screenplay and obvious violence. The show became a word-by-mouth cult film ala Night of The living Dead, and I must have seen this " trip down trash lane" about a dozen times. Shocking? You've got to be kidding! Ha..Hah..in 1972 it was a laugh fest.
Funny how time turns junk into art.
