Should be good! Considering these actors are on board, it'll be hard for this movie to fail.

I don't know if this movie is going to work nearly as well as the original. That's because the original, peope back then weren't use to seeing sick, demented, torture, in your face, like now a days. Hell, that was years before the first slasher flick, Halloween(and the best). The only movie that could compare with the in your face murder, was the original Pyscho. But, Pyscho didn't have the depravity, that the original, "Last House on the Left" did. So, this new version better have ALL the scenes from the first, including the girl urinating on herself, then walking into the water to be killed. Man, I'll never forget that scene, people actually left the Drive-in because of it! Hey, I'm always willing to give the new a try, but, I guess I'm getting old, and not ready to give up the originals, which 9 times out of 10, are far superior.

This once again is another classic case of directors and major studies losing there way. Last house of the left the orginal was one of the most important films for cinema violence and torture. Todays movie watcher will never grasp the full idea and balls that Wes Craven had when he made this film 20 years ago. Shame on you Hollywood!

It will be interesting as to how this new version will affect audiences. It is true, as the first poster mentioned, audiences have been desentisized to violence and torture due to a saturation in the market. However, as "Inside" proved, horror can still be brutal, creepy, and downright scary. Watching "Inside" made me feel like the first time I watched the original "Last House on the Left", traumatized, shaken, but overall, blown away.

i don't know about Ricki (i haven't seen her in anything), but Garret & Aaron are GREAT actors. at least the producers aren't getting crappy actors. these guys can play very effective bad guys! hopefully this movie will be awesome!

Even though these are screen test photos ,Garret does not have that maniacal look that David Hess had in the original . even without wardrobe and makeup , David Hess still looked creepy and violent. he was a serious scaring looking dude, even up to this day. he has that look. sorry Garret, but you got some huge shoes to fill .
this movie is unecessary . the hope that this movie will shock you is totally nonexistant. we know what happened already. the shock value is gone.
the comment Gambit made above is correct. you can shock people today in horror , but it has to a an original idea like INSIDE. something fresh that hasn't been done.
instead of remaking classic successful movies, why don't these studios take some of those ****ty movies from the past that never worked and improve on them . don't touch the classics anymore.

"Last house of the left the orginal was one of the most important films for cinema violence and torture."
I find this to be a FASCINATING statement, as if cinematic torture is some kind of world-changing topic. Movies about genocide, race, war, politics, adoption, abortion, corruption, etc--things like that are "important". Real-world stuff. Torture-porn films are at best a guilty pleasure.
If you find an over-the-top, hyper-violent movie about people being BRUTALLY tortured and killed "important" to society in any way, I find that interesting... Not to say I don't watch these movies and enjoy them for what they are, but come on...
Maybe I misunderstood your statement, which in my hoped-up-on red bull studying for finals state of mind is entirely possible...

The original film is evil. Plain and simple. This won't match it - at best it will be an effective 'revenge thriller' but nothing will match the hopelessness of the first Last House.

Ran across an homage / rough remake of the original Last House on the Left the last time I made it through Austin, through a friend of a friend who had it on DVD. Locally produced in Austin with some great local actors. http://underbellythefilm.com if anyone wants to check it out.

Last House on the Left was one of the craziest,demented movies I have ever seen.I saw this movie when I was about 15 and it stuck with me for many days.This is one of the very few movies that ever done that.The others were The original Shining and The House by the Cemetary.Anyways,this movie scared the **** out of me and I'll never forget it.I doubt that the new one will be like that,but I will still definatly be checking it out.Motel Hell and I Spit on your Grave were also some good ones.

I just hope they keep the fall season as a part of the shooting. Also the sound track really added to the movie as well. They need to keep it grainey if they want to seperate themselves from all the other horror/slashers films coming out these days.

Also the person who posted above is right. When this originally came out it was new and shocking. Due to the types of movies coming out today it's going to be hard to make this movie shocking.

I'm more interested to see how they are going to handle the rape scenes. Society is very strict on those these days and you know parents are going to argue with that. They HAVE to make this an R...there's no way it can slip through the cracks and become a PG-13. I'm not gonna go on and debate about R and PG-13 horror, because if the movie is good, the rating won't matter. I just feel there's no way this can be nothing less than an R.
