Alternate Versions

The uncut version runs 76 minutes. The cut version runs 74 minutes, deleting much graphic footage and using zoomed or alternate shots to tone down the content. Among the differences in the cut version: the torture and murder of Angelica is about 36 seconds shorter, with the nipple severing, force-feeding, and vomiting implied rather than depicted, and one stab instead of three; the necrophilia is about 45 seconds shorter and omits the rear nudity; the murder of Emily is about 25 seconds shorter and omits her agonized reaction shots.

Remake of a classic with a twist
17 October 2006 | by DjfunkmasterGSee all my reviews

Now while the exploitation flick genre seems to be making a comeback of sorts, I should point out that it's market has always been strong in the underground.

here we have Chaos, basically a remake of Last house on the left with a more twisted vibe and a different ending. The theme rings the same for both films, and the world in general. There are sick and evil people out there and they are twisted enough to harm/kill/ and rape people on a whim.

Chaos has something going for it. the cinematography is very decent, and the acting isn't to bad for an indie film, however it falters because it relies to much on the Wes craven classic Last house on the Left for it's source material.

Now recently the production people behind the film have been in the news touting a film like this could have saved Natalie Holloways life, or at least prevented her disappearance.... whatever it exactly was, it was a shameless attempt at marketing a film, and the filmmakers should be ashamed for exploiting an overexposed media hyped case.

Now while the film falters because of the blatant borrowing from a classic film, it really hits home on the violence. Now I have seen films ten times more brutal than Chaos (I Spit On Your Grave comes to mind for brutality), but it is still a disturbing film when it comes to the sexual assault on the victims, however, the film relies on disturbing gags to be it's only marketable feature, and suffers in originality of story and plot.

Overall the film is not bad, I was able to sit through and enjoy it to an extent, but I couldn't help being reminded of the Wes craven film this film borrows from so heavily. The thing I found the most annoying about the DVD was the filmmakers retort to critic Roger Ebert. I felt their marketing of the film is a disgrace to indie filmmakers if not a down right slap in the face. However, I will forgive them because the film does have it's moments here and there.

Hopefully the filmmakers will have something more original next time around.

5 out of 10.
