The Last House on the Left


Hailed by critics as one of the greatest horror movies of all time and now fully Uncut and Uncensored: dare you enter The Last House On The Left? Teenagers Mari and Phyllis stop off before heading to a concert in the city to score some grass when they are accosted by a group of thugs led by the reprehensible and deeply psychotic Krug. While Mari's parents are just a mile away preparing a party for their daughter, the two girls are subjected to the most terrifying ordeal imaginable. With his male and female cohorts, the monstrous Krug delivers a grueling catalogue of assault and depravity on the two girls that stretches the bounds of on-screen horror to its very limits. Only after the girls' suffering is ended does the enormity of their actions dawn upon the villainous gang. But for them the nightmare is just beginning: the house they happen upon to spend the night is one from which they may never leave alive. From master of horror Wes Craven comes a film so powerful, so shocking that it has never been permitted in its complete and uncut form in the UK... until now.
