USA | 84 min | 35mm | Dir. Wes Craven
Wes Craven’s feature debut is a million miles away from his later mainstream success with the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises. Along with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Last House remains 70s horror at it’s most primal and influential. It’s filthy thumbprints are all over the splatter films of the ‘80s and the torture-porn so in vogue over the past decade. A loose adaptation of Bergman’s The Virgin Spring, Craven’s take on this tale of murder and revenge is unrelentingly grim, vicious, and unshakeable. You have been warned. The uncut, unrated version will be screened and the feature will be preceded by a special reel of trailers honoring the late horror maestro Craven.
