"Last House" is Next Remake

by | August 17, 2006 | Comments

Who can name all the horror remakes that have hit the screens over the past five years? Not the J-horror-type ones, but the "re-imaginings" of classics (and not-so-classics) of the ’70s and ’80s. Well, here’s another one: Get ready for a remake of Wes Craven‘s "Last House on the Left."

Now, having just watched last year’s woefully awful "Chaos," I simply can’t imagine why we’d need another new take on the rape & revenge chiller "Last House on the Left," but here’s what Variety has to say:

"Rogue Pictures has closed a deal to remake "The Last House on the Left," the 1972 horror film that started Wes Craven’s career. Craven, who wrote and directed the original, will produce the remake with longtime partner Marianne Maddalena and Sean S. Cunningham … Craven and Rogue are eyeing an early 2007 start date.

Rogue will retain worldwide rights for the redo, which follows the same storyline. A pair of adventurous teen girls are kidnapped, raped and murdered by a gang of thugs. The killers unwittingly hole up in the home of one victim’s parents, who, upon realizing what their guests did, devise gruesome revenge."

Sigh.
