[Warning: this film contains sexual violence.] The late Wes Craven is a true master of horror known for creating some of the genre's most iconic franchises (A Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream, etc.). His directorial debut, The Last House on the Left, is an unflinching look at a group of on-the-run criminals who kidnap two young women and leave them for dead. The criminals flee to a nearby house owned by a welcoming couple to rest for the night, but a twist of fate sets a twisted tale of revenge and horror into a motion. The Last House on the Left is an interesting and disturbing time capsule of the 1970s that would set precedents still followed in the horror genre to this day. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you want to see how Craven got his start, LHOTL is one you shouldn't miss. A remake starring Sara Paxton was released in 2009 and is just as disturbing if the original left you hungry for more.
