Rating:

The Last House on the Left is an unrated film version of the 2009 American horror remake directed by Dennis Iliadis and starring Sara Paxton, Monica Potter and Tony Goldwyn. The movie is a revamp of the Wes Craven 1972 classic of the same name. The Collingwood family is finally going on an overdue vacation. The plan is to head to their lake house to relax, see old friends and enjoy being a family. But when the only child Emma (Potter) gets kidnapped and left for dead by notorious wanted criminals, the Collingwood clan may have to deal with something other than the woods' mosquitoes. As a storm rolls in overhead their daughter's murderers end up unintentionally seeking shelter at the Collingwood lake house. Things come to light, motives are found out and let's just say it's time for these parents to do some grounding...six feet bellow the ground. It's a suspenseful, revenge ridden thrill ride you won't want to miss.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Replacing the earlier movie's more depraved sequences with sustained tension and truly unnerving editing, the director proves adept at managing mayhem in cramped spaces.

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    If the original could be accused of having a real point (even a subtext), the uninspired redo has none whatsoever.

  • 10

    Los Angeles Times

    A shockingly mundane disappointment taken on its own and a deeply misguided refraction of the original.
