Another horror classic getting remade


WesThe fine tradition of serving up warm sloppy seconds continues…

Hot on the heels of his “Hills Have Eyes” remake, Variety announces that another old Wes Craven film – in fact, the one that kicked off his career – is about to get the remake treatment. Yep, “The Last House on the Left” is about to get a contemporary makeover.

Rogue Pictures have assigned Craven, who wrote and directed the original, long-time partner Marianne Maddalena, and Sean S. Cunningham, producer of the original, to produce the remake – which starts filming in 2007.

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.

The same article mentions that Craven is also in talks to remake his – flops (!) – “Shocker” and “The People Under the Stairs”. Like printing money….
