Well I got round to watching the remake of Wes Cravens 'The Last House on the Left'. I admit I have never seen the original, it's not really something I thought I would like to see. I don't know how faithful or different the remake is to the original, but it was a good film, though very bleak.
A criminal on his way to a maximum security prison is sprung by his brother and girlfriend. The criminals cowardly son accidentally gets two 17 year old girls involved with the fugitives, and as a result are kidnapped. One of the girls 'Mari' causes the car they are travelling in to crash in the woods. Prompting the bleakest scene in the film involving death and rape which actually led to a few people walking out of the cinema, heh. The film really picks up pace from here, and leads to a fantastic last third where retribution is attained and people are killed in various gruesome and violent ways.
