    Audiences with a brain cell left have only one choice: Look for the first exit on the right. show more

    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    The remake of The Last House on the Left breaks the template, taking the 1972 original into an interesting new direction, with bold camera angles, good actors and a script that heaps on just as much character development as carnage. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Not only is it plodding and completely predictable, the carnage is rendered slowly and quasi-reverentially, making the whole brutal experience come off like torture porn. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    The best in the latest crop of slasher remakes. Admittedly, that is faint praise. show more

    One sickening piece of garbage. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Adheres sufficiently closely to the original template so as not to offend purists and manages to pack an intensely visceral punch of its own, most effectively in the extended setup. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Hinges on humiliation and vengeance, which makes it like most other modern horror titles. Its focus on sexual assault, however, puts it in a different, more primal league. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    A warning: One scene in the middle is almost outrageously cruel and graphic. If you're the type of person who has to be reminded, "It's only a movie," stay away. This is the most depraved and dreadful piece of screen horror since last year's "Funny Games." show more

    The storyline was actually believable, surrounding a family willing to do anything to save one another. A horror film turned feel-good. show more

    Stephen Cole The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Horror fans anticipating grisly laughs are in for a jolt. Because the new Last House, though terrifying, is never, ever fun. show more

    an excellent film. Very good acting and story line with lots of suspense. i liked it better than the original. only for kids 16+ a rather graphic rape scene that includes brief nudity and some female breast nudity later in the film. Plenty of violence and blood. Language includes many uses of the f-word as wel as other profanities. Overall rating 8.5/10

    This movie was pretty good. I do not agree with all of the negative remarks about the rape scene. I wasnt going to see the movie after reading all the reviews but a close friend of mine assured me it was not that bad. I took a chance and went to see the movie. I am glad with my choice. The rape was not as graphic as many people suggested. Ive seen a handful of rape scenes that made me cry but this was not one of them. This is NOT a movie for children. The story line was great.

    im going to go watch this movie today and i was reading some of the reviews and frankly all you people whining about the rape scene are retarded. have any of you even seen the original last house on the left and know that this is a remake? in the original there were two rape scenes i am in no way advocating rape its wrong and takes a demented soul to do it but you cant remake this movie and not have that brutal aspect not appear in the remake. its fiction its a movie its what adds to the story and the horror of this movie. its no different than watching a hockey mask wearing juggernaught killing teens while their having sex or waterskiing topless or any other horror if your going to write a review watch the original and then go watch the new one then write your review!
