Arrow Video invades THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (review)

The road leads to nowhere when a gang of escaped criminals rape and murder two teenagers and their getaway car just happens to break down in front of the isolated home of one of the dead girls' vengeful parents.  The original, controversial sensation that had audiences repeating "It's only a movie!" directed by Wes Craven and produced by FRIDAY THE 13TH director Sean S. Cunningham, presented uncut with two discs worth of extras and a CD soundtrack.
