The Last House on the Left-remake

Don't think I've seen a thread on this yet, anyway I just watched the trailer for the remake of Wes Craven's 1972 The Last House on the Left

Wiki article for the original film

You can go see it when it comes out on March 13th, or rather don't bother and just watch the trailer instead as it tells you EVERYTHING that happens in the film

So what do horror fans think of this? IMO remakes of classic horror films can go very right (Dawn of the Dead) and just "what was the point of that?" bad with claptrap like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This kinda looks along the lines of The Hills Have Eyes remake, (which I enjoyed a lot) in that it follows pretty much the same lines and to be fair not that many have seen the original. And I presume like THHE it will be equally as brutal when it comes to what has to happen

Also I had to laugh that it's Cromartie from T:SCC after the girls
Doubt he'll be as good as David Hess in the role though

Re: The Last House on the Left-remake

I don't really care. I'm waaaay past the point of being sick and tired of remakes. I'd rather watch Craven's film again than waste time on a remake that will probably suck. Yeah I know, I haven't seen one second of it, but the track record for horror remakes is terrible. With the exception of The Hills Have Eyes, but that was a mediocre film to begin with.

Re: The Last House on the Left-remake

I've never been a fan of remakes, no matter how good they are. Id much rather see an original production of a movie than the remake, no matter how awesome the remake is.

So, with that, I'm not too terribly excited about this. I am more excited for the Midnight Meattrain.

Re: The Last House on the Left-remake

Actually, the story of the original Last House On The Left is based on a Scandinavian folk tale which also provided the basis for Ingmar Berman's 1960 film Jungfrukallen (a.k.a. The Virgin Spring), starring Max von Sydow. A timeless story, really, since violent crime and equally violent revenge will always seem to be with us, unfortunately...

Even though I'm just as wary of remakes as anyone else, I just might check this out. I actually already saw the trailer on YouTube, and even though it looks considerably glossier, without the guerilla-documentary roughness of Wes Craven's '72 debut, it just might be worth a look...

They should remake bad movies and turn them into good ones.

How many braindead Bruce Willis or Sly Stallone or Wesley Snipes action movies actually had something there they just never even bothered with?

Hated it the first time. I don't hold much faith in any 'improvement'.
If you accept your enemies' evaluation of you, you accept undeserved blame, and thus give them the power to destroy you.

Re: The Last House on the Left-remake

Well apparantly the movie is out today in the US & Canada.

Although looking at that it's not out here in Blighty till friggin' September!
Even the rest of Europe get it way before we do

And they wonder why online piracy is such a problem. Fuckwits
