follows in the footsteps of ‘last house on the left,’ but isn’t as good. it’s not a total rip-off, but it certainly doesn’t break new ground either. it has a different style than last house – it slows things down quite a bit and allows things to unfold in front of the camera without much movement or cutting in many cases. it’s probably more realistic and should have been more effective, but for some reason it wasn’t. it produced some gruesome scenes, but ultimately didn’t have the emotion that it should, and could, have had.
