Hey everyone! Just got back from Vegas. Sorry there have been no posts in a while. See, I live in the dark ages and do not have constant access to email or computers. Amazingly, I survived. Before I left, out of sheer boredom, I re-watched The Last House on the Left remake from 2009
I am on record as not liking this unnecessary remake. I felt it was pointless. The characters of the parents were not well drawn, and as usual I was rooting for the girl to die. Only the villains were somewhat interesting, as they usually are. What bothered me about this film is that Stephen King LOVED it. I mean, he practically named it the best picture of the year. I love and respect King so I thought I would give it another try. Well, I still didn't care for it, but I did notice something about it that I had missed before. It looks like a Sofia Coppola movie. I swear, the music, the photography, the lingering shots of young women staring off into space.... The Last House on the Left is what a Sofia Coppola horror film would look like. Watch a double feature of Last House and The Virgin Suicides and see if you don't agree.
