News arrived at my in box yesterday that the remake of "Last House on the Left" is hitting theaters one month after a remake of another Sean Cunningham production, "Friday the 13th", hits screens. That would be March 13, 2009.
Masters of horror Wes Craven and Sean Cunningham revisit their landmark film that launched Cravenís directing career and influenced decades of horror films to follow: The Last House on the Left. Bringing one of the most notorious thrillers of all time to a new generation, they produce the story that explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who harmed their child.
The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari (Sara Paxton) and her friend are kidnapped by a prison escapee and his crew. Terrified and left for dead, Mariís only hope is to make it back to parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe. And when her family learns the horrifying story, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House on the Left.
