31 Days of Horror 2: The Last House on the Left

October 20, 2009: The Last House on the Left
You want to watch a shocking movie? Then this is your movie. Not only is it shocking it brings a whole new meaning to horror.
Inspired by Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring (1960), The Last House On The Left is a parent's worst nightmare come to terrifying life. Beautiful 17-year-olds Mari (Sandra Cassel) and Phyllis (Lucy Grantham) head into the city for a rock concert, but once there, they're kidnapped by three sadistic escaped convicts led by Krug Stillo (David Hess). After the gang drives the girls into the woods, where they rape and murder them, the disheveled crew ends up at the home of none other than Mari's parents, John (Gaylord St. James) and Estelle (Cynthia Carr).
This movie is shocking and hard to watch. Yes, there is gore but that's not the scene that will get to you. The scene in the woods with the two girls is the most horrible, shocking and brutal scenes in movies. This scene will make you feel sick and it's extremely hard to watch.
The reason I recommend the movie is because today it is a classic in the genre and it really stands alone.
They just remade this film and I was very impressed by it. I actually liked some aspects in the remake more then the original. So yes I am recommending you watch a remake.
