Im sorry, I have to vent, as if hollywood isnt uncreative and homo only enough, yet another classic horror flick is set to be ripped off and totally castrated, you see the saps in hollywood wouldnt have a creative idea if somebody gave them one, if they are not ripping off the 5 star japanese horror movies, they are taking some of our best american classics, totally fucking destroying them, then releasing them as remakes, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hillls Have Eyes, Friday The 13th, and now, one of the all time greatest horror movies ever!!! The Last House On The Left!! im so sick I literally had to cover my mouth when I saw the preview so I didnt vomit, it's the most lame unexcusable worthless garbage I have ever seen, it's right on track with the american music scene, full of a bunch of un original and worthless shit!!! Thanx For listening!!!

Well, in my role as the outcast I have to put forward my thoughts. I appreciate that a classic movie is a classic movie and this is not a complete generalisation, but for the most part, I hate 80's movies, and certainly anything before then.

 

I'm not saying the new versions of old movies are great, but I do enjoy seeing them presented in a format I can enjoy. In movies, technological advances are one thing I can actually appreciate. I find that as long as an originally good story is not strayed from, I much prefer the newer look, production value and most of all the new actors, who in these horror films, are usually sexy young peices of flesh a role away from doing porn.

Geoff, Last House On The Left is one of the rare exceptions, it was Wes Cravens very first movie, and unlike the before mentioned horror flicks, it's not really a horror flick! it is, but not a slasher horror flick, and it does not!!!! suffer from dated special fx! because it never tried to be over the top with it's gore! and of course their are people like the 2 I wont mention...(mullethead & widdafuckchops) that don't understand how anybody could like it! but theyve watched it???? and I bet they didnt finish watching it with any sort of pleasent or happy feelings, I bet they remembered it for a long time after they watched it, it's truly one of the feel good movies in history! right up their with House At The End Of The Park, and Cannibal Holocaust, and heres the thing, It was banned in 1971 or whenever it came out, a big portion was never even let onto the video(vhs), it just barely has been available on the Dvd directors cut, and if they thought it was disturbing in regular vision, They definetly shouldnt watch the directors version! I dont see how they could remake it, just the pure concept of the movie is not something I could see them letting into the theatres, at least not here in america, now if the main character was Queer, then it would be getting an early showing, and be up for Oscars! but go see it, don't go see it, im sure it will be watered down just perfectly to fit todays standard of a scary american slasher flick! but if your really interested in seeing what really happened to Mari Collingwood(since it is based on an actual event) go rent or buy Wes Cravens version, but be warned, there might be a couple scenes with naked boobies, and javinas, and theirs a little violence here and there!

Perfectly genious and a fantastically quotable description of all that blows in the media whore machine that churns out pre-packaged, made for video, looks great on a t-shirt, can we market that to McDonalds drivle that turns the general public into the life sucking trogladites that they are!

 

Preach on brother Leykis. :drink:

Last House on the Left was disturbing to say the least...I can't see anyone liking that movie.

 

The soundtrack to that film is the funniest thing I have ever heard in my entire life. Swear. To. God.

The Last House On The Left is very unpleasent viewing,no more, no less.

 

It was one of the more notorious of the so called "Video Nasties" over in England.

 

Remaking a classic is always a bummer but remaking this may be an improvement, the original had a documentary feel to it

which added to the overall depressing feel of the movie!

Don't forget about the Psycho and Wicker Man butcher jobs...Psycho starring Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates... :wacko::blink: & The Wicker Man with NicholASS Cage. :rolleyes: ...

 

Psycho was atrocious but I quite liked the modern take on The Wicker Man, the original with Edward Woodward is hard to beat though! :tumbsup:

All the songs on the soundtrack were done by the lead actor David Hess, who came up as the guitar player in Carly Simons band in the 70's, you should check Wiki, or Imdb, he also co wrote a song with Jimi Hendrix, but im not sure which song,

 

As for the movie, watch the movie with the Directors commentery, Wes, and Sean, started in a studio that produced Documenterys, that is why it has that feel, that is the only reason, they joke about it at great length, how when they screened it for the first time, they had no idea how powerful, graphic, disturbing and documentery it had came out, Craven said it was then he realised just how powerful a movie could be, you don't notice it when your shooting scene by scene, just f.y.i.!

Sorry, Leykiss, but I'm going to disagree with your original rant. I'm a horror fan, and I readily acknowledge the "classics," but I also have no problem with them being remade, reimagined, reinvented, rebooted, or whatever they want to call it, and more often than not, I prefer the updated version because I appreciate the slicker production values. Now, do I wish the American movie industry came up with more original ideas for horror films? Absolutely. But the recent "reimaginings" of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes were fantastic, and I found the updated Hitcher, Halloween, and Friday the 13th to be pretty good too.

 

Unlike you, I couldn't be happier they're remaking The Last House on the Left. The original, while admittedly sticking with you like a dirty piece of gum on the bottom of your shoe, isn't great cinema by any stretch of the imagination, I don't care how you spin it. I like a modicum of entertainment when watching my horror flicks and the original Last House on the Left didn't entertain me one iota, and that lack of entertainment had nothing to do with the subject matter.

 

So I guess you can keep your gritty, poorly-produced, amateurishly-acted, mucho-beloved 70s horror movies and I'll stick to the slick, glossy, high-budget, FX-filled modern horror films of today (but only the R-rated ones...I like gore, not that pussified PG-13 crap).

 

C'mon, man, even you have to admit that at least the remake of The Hills Have Eyes was far better than the original...

Well your sure giving a shitload of credit to a direct line of rip offs?? my rant has nothing to do with production values or shitty acting from the 70's, at least in the 70's they could come up with their own ideas for movies, you dont have a leg to stand on sticking up for the remakes! I guaruntee you The Last House On The Left remake will be watered down, who likes pg-13 movies?? I often catch shit for not watching anything under R, but you can have your highly produced, "amateurishly-acted"(since I havent seen any oscar nominating performances in the remakes), high budget, fx filled, unoriginal, already thought up, rip-offs, called modern american horror movies, (they rip off japanese horror movies also) and I'll stick to my foreign, 70's, 80's,90's, and underground, movies, since as a real!!! horror fan, I know the difference between originality, and ripoffs with high production values! And if you want to watch something cool, buy Audition, if youve already seen it, then you'll be exstatic when it's being ripped off and released in america, which has to be sometime in the not so distant future, if you havent seen it, then you need to get with the program, also try Visitor Q, and im sure youve already seen the Cannibal movies as well as the August movies???

I love your vehemence, my friend, but this really comes down to personal preference, does it not? You prefer the classics, I prefer (often, but not always, mind you) the remakes. I don't have to have "a leg to stand on," because all that matters is what entertains me. You're not entertained by these remakes, don't watch 'em...just like I don't often watch the classics.

 

You also seem to infer that I only watch these glossy American remakes, as if they are my only horror fodder. Not true. I have seen most of Takashi Miike's movies (even owned Audition for awhile...great ending, though the film is a little on the slow side), am currently loving the new extreme horror coming out of France (Haute Tension, Inside, Martyrs, Frontiers, etc.), and even have some German gore films (Barricade, for example). So just because I enjoy the remakes, don't assume I am not a "real horror fan." Or go ahead and assume if you like...we all know by know you're a person with strong opinions, and I can respect that, even if I don't necessarily hold to them.

Steve Martin shamelessly hamming and mugging it up as Clouseau - now, there's a horror beyond one's worst nightmares. That egotistical has-been should be shot and pissed on for those atrocities.

I must check if my brother has 'Last House On The Left' 'cause I'm kind of interested now. Definitely interested in the remake.

 

Mark copied what I said, but in a slicker, easier to understand format. ;)

I'm not an expert when it comes to horror movies. If a movie looks entertaining I'll watch it. If it doesn't I won't. I do agree that original thought has been lost with the current movie industry. Everything is remakes, cookie cutter stories, or ideas taken from foreign movies. When the American film industry actually creates something that is original and successful they end up running it into the ground. The never ending Saw series is the best example. The first one was good and so was the second. The third one should have been the end of the series, but money talks. As long as people are paying there will be more to come.

 

What really pisses me off about the movie industry is the cookie cutter approach that is taken. That doof that made Transformers almost destroyed it. The forumula used for Transformers is have a military hero, involve the government and some secret branch of it, an unlikely hero, a hot girl who is the love interest, and blow lots and lots of stuff up. They probably had the basic story of Transformers done in 5 minutes. There was certainly nothing coherent about the thing. Being a die hard Transfomers fan I found it quite disheartening.

I wasnt trying to attack you personally, nor your horror movie knowledge. you surely know your likes and dislikes, I guess if they actually remade these movies it would be okay, but they water them down so poorely and change the story around, like on the trailor, Mari Collingwood was left for dead? WTF, she was dead as a door nail, there was no leaving her for dead about it, and she went into town, she didnt go into town, she went with a friend to a concert and to score some smoke! this is what I mean by watered down, if your going to remake a movie, remake it, don't take the plot and title of an original then do whatever you want with it, that's all, Takashi's movies are great, Audition is like a chick flick, but the last 15 minutes tell me you werent sitting there with your mouth on the floor? have you checked out the August Redmoon series?
