The Last House On The Left (2009)

The 2000s saw horror enter a phase of remaking older classics, from franchise starters like Halloween to one-off works like Sorority Row. Greek director Dennis Iliadis’ first U.S. feature was the remake of Wes Craven’s directorial debut, 1972’s The Last House On The Left – which itself was also a remake of Ingmar Bergman’s 1960 film The Virgin Spring. It’s interesting then, that although many of the remakes of this period were derided – especially when compared to the originals – Iliadis’ work managed to eclipse Craven’s messy original.
