"Can a movie go TOO FAR?"

Two teenage girls head to a rock concert for one's birthday. While trying to score marijuana in the city, they are kidnapped and brutalized by a gang of psychotic convicts.

Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left is one of the most controversial horror films ever made and faced heavy censorship from the day it was released theatrically. Some theaters wouldn't show it at all while others exhibited it but did their own censoring. Because of cinemas butchering and censoring the film, Craven and crew members would get cut-up prints back from exhibitors and had to restore them before renting them out again.
