The Last House On The LeftFollow the shocking and terrifying story that explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who violently attacked their daughter in The Last House on the Left.

Masters of horror Wes Craven and Sean Cunningham revisit their landmark film that launched Craven's directing career and influenced decades of horror films to follow: The Last House on the Left. Bringing one of the most notorious thrillers of all time to a new generation, they produce the story that explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who harmed their child.

In The Last House on the Left, the wrong place/wrong time theme seems to underlie the story in more ways than one. Usually being in the wrong place at the wrong time seemt to happen to innocent people who need to stop for the night, or whose car breaks down, or who are set up by the denizens of strange locales. Here are a few of our other favorite 'Wrong Place, Wrong Time' movies:

Uh-oh.
