Halloween Movie Marathon Day 22

The Last House on the Left: Collector’s Edition Unrated

Craven helped redefine American horror with this début. But, unlike his fellow directors, Craven gives his film an uncomfortable verisimilitude, setting it squarely in the heartland of modern America. While at times it’s awkward and inconsistent, with distracting comic interludes, his handling of the brutal horror scenes is unsettling, and the death of the daughter is an unexpectedly quiet and lyrical moment.
