Hayden Welch’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Why don't you lay back and enjoy being inferior?”
Depravity for depravities sake, and with the proper style that commendable. No one has a more genuine and lively grasp of this style that Wes Craven. This alongside The Hills Have Eyes solidify that no matter how insignificant the budget Craven can deliver a spine-tingling unique experience that is so powerful in its bluntness.
I adore the way the atmosphere makes these human beings feel like a supernatural entity. In a time where worldwide res reporting was finally being able to explore the good — but more importantly, in this case, the evil — love to your living room! This feeling of actuality in evil is perfectly displayed as it comes to your backyard in The Last House on the Left.
