THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT
1972, Park Circus, 83 min, USA, Dir: Wes Craven

A pack of degenerate psycho killers led by the deliciously slimy David Hess unknowingly find a night’s lodging with one of their teen victim’s families, to their ultimately gory woe. Along with contemporaries George Romero and Tobe Hooper, Craven proved with LAST HOUSE… to be in the vanguard of a startlingly imaginative, high-voltage rejuvenation of world horror cinema. Produced by FRIDAY THE 13th director Sean S. Cunningham.


FRIDAY THE 13TH
1980, Paramount, 95 min, USA, Dir: Sean S. Cunningham

The bloody franchise begins! Years after a series of tragedies, Camp Crystal Lake is about to re-open … but someone wants to prevent that by any means necessary. Distracted by sex, drugs and obliviousness, the counselors find it hard to get anything done - especially when they starting turning up dead. Keep your eyes peeled for Kevin Bacon in a small role.
