    Hi Dave,

    Nope - the slip-cased versions were limited for the first week or two of release. After that, the sleeves were no longer produced, and you can now only buy the UK R2 "Last House On The Left" DVD, as a regular double-disc Amaray case release.

    To be honest, though, the cardboard sleeves on all these kinds of DVD's aren't actually that nice or great. More often than not, I've actually taken them off and thrown them away. (e.g. Oldboy, Sympathy For Mr Vengeance, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex) etc.

    Yeah i have seen it and must admit it was no where near as violent as everybody made out, but was jsut wondering about these slipcases, cheers for the info pooch.

    My MVC has a version in a slipcase for £18.99, but theres no way im paying that for it, it does come with a free poster though.

    Hi Blondie,

    You said:

    Umm, with all due respect, it's not a snuff film! There is no such thing as a genuine snuff film! :lesson: I know it's not the best film ever made, but you do need to bear in mind the cultural context that it was made in; the fact that the film is still cut by about 30 seconds courtesy of the BBFC, plus the fact that it was one of Wes Craven's earliest works, if not his earliest work.

    Anyway, if you thought "Last House On The Left" was nasty, I'd not recommend seeing "Angel Guts", "Kichiku Dai Enkai", "Guinea Pig" or "Cannibal Holocaust"!

    I wish people would not make such blindly inaccurate comments about certain films, when they don't know what they are talking about! :mad:

    Agreed, beeing one of Wes Cravens first films if not the first then its something fans of his will probably want in there collection, calling it a snuff film is just stupid.

    Its supposed to show that although this is a film, it is really happening in the world.......or something like that, it explains it all on the celloid crime of the centure feature.

    Blondie,

    Dave is right. It was made as a reaction to the attrocities going on in the Vietnam war. People at the time were being fed a nightly diet of news footage of people being killed. People who weren't being named, or identifed, e.g. 6 more casualties. Craven and Cunningham were angry that people were being accustomed to violence, but weren't being shown "real" violence. It was being made safe, and palatable. "Last House On The Left" was their way of trying to wake-up American society, and to show them that violence isn't nice, and pretty, but absolutely horrendous, shocking and unrelentingly brutal!
