Overview
Bold, powerful and starkly realistic, this chilling cinematic debut of horror master Wes Craven (Scream) is a shocking journey into the heart of evil. Written and directed with "almost unbearable dramatic tension" (Chicago Sun-Times), The Last House on the Left will make you deadbolt your doors and frantically mutter: "It's only a movie…it's only a movie…it's only a movie!"

Easy going Mari Collingwood and her fun-loving friend Phyllis are on their way to a Bloodlust concert to celebrate Mari's 17th birthday when three escaped convicts kidnap and torture them. But Mari and Phyllis are fighters, and although they are drugged and beaten into unconsciousness, stuffed in a car trunk and driven into the woods for even more brutality, they are still alive…But for how long?
