I know it's not a great film by any means, but I was hooked to Last House on Dead End Street from the opening shot. AS SaviniFan said, I love the grainy look of the film. It does have a very 'home movie" feel to it. Much of the my interest in LHODES came from the history behind it. For years no one was sure who directed the film, and who the actors were. I would think that a little research would have answered all of these questions, but I guess not. The two scenes that stand out to me are the whipping scene involving a woman in black face and the infamous deer hoof scene. Thriller is an interesting film, but not one that I would go out of my way to see again.
