From the Press Release...

Banned in the UK for almost 30 years, Wes Craven's notorious shocker THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is finally being released as a special two-disc edition DVD by Anchor Bay UK. Loaded with a host of exclusive extra features, some of which have never been seen before on DVD anywhere in the world, this Anchor Bay UK edition of THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT represents a landmark release of a milestone in horror cinema history.

Based on Ingmar Bergman's highly acclaimed The Virgin Spring, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT tells the terrifying story of two teenage girls, Mari and Phyllis, headed up to the city to celebrate Mari's 17th birthday at concert by the band, Bloodlust. While trying to score some marijuana prior to the show, the pair are drugged, beaten and kidnapped by a group of escaped convicts and taken into the woods where their horrific ordeal ends in rape and murder. When the criminals coincidentally, but unknowingly, take refuge at the nearby house of one of their victims, the girl's parents discover the gruesome fate of their daughter and seek to exact their revenge.

Produced by Sean S. Cunningham (Friday The 13; Spring Break; House; Jason X) and marking the cinematic directorial debut of horror master Wes Craven (Scream; The People Under the Stairs; A Nightmare On Elm Street; The Hills Have Eyes), THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is a bold, powerful and shockingly realistic journey into the heart of evil. The film features a chilling performance (and soundtrack score!) by the inimitable David Hess (The House On The Edge Of The Park; Hitch Hike; Swamp Thing) as the gang's psychotic leader, and is also notable for being future film director Steve Miner's (Lake Placid; Halloween H20; Forever Young; Warlock; Soul Man; House; Friday The 13th Part 3; Friday The 13th Part 2) first foray into feature films, here earning credits as Assistant Producer, Production Assistant, Assistant Editor and Title Designer!
