Today, my friends and I will be watching "The Last House on the Left" which I heard was said to be brutal and gory. We'll be watching the remake, the toned-down version-i think. Looking at the tagline, I'm guessing the movie is about revenge.
The last 'revenge' film I saw was quite disturbing, it affects you psychologically but the story was intensely amazing. I'm talking about the Korean film, "Old Boy"which is so twisted, even more twisted than "Orphan"- which I didn't exactly enjoy by the way. Revenge is a shallow term for the story, vengeance would be most appropriate. I learned about this movie from a French girl I worked with when I was an intern. She said this was her favorite movie, so I decided to take Frenchy's recommendation and I loved it.
I'm all about original films and I actually don't understand why people need to do re-makes of films, because rarely do they come out with something better. I heard Will Smith will be playing the lead role in a RE-MAKE of this film, and will be directed by Steven Spielberg. Here's to another disappointment. I highly highly suggest you watch the Korean film first.
