Last House on the Left Metaphor/Simile Watch


  • Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice: “Like stamp collecting … seems practically a morality tale … a cold, low-gravity planet settled by Scandinavian designers … like a real family … a Greek import … resembles a dive-bar slumming suburban psychobilly band … the keglike torso of a UFC journeyman.”
  • Dennis Harvey, Variety: “An unsettling memento … pearl-in-a-dungheap … a soothing dose of reaffirmed family values … strong meat.”
  • Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York: “Awful stomach punching … dismembering Craven’s landmark extremities … like frenetic yuppies looking for new things to put in their microwave.”
  • James Berardinelli, Reelviews: “The wheels fall off … their daughter is on death’s door … this slippery slope … a master of playing his audience … those who go in with open eyes.”
