I've always wondered - how exactly did a human zombie get demon teeth?

Seen 52 of them. Always have been a huge fan of low budget, exploitative or 'tacky' horror, and always will be.

39 I think were officially on the list according to various sites I've seen and articles I've read but there is a link earlier in the thread (page 1 IIRC) that may offer some further info if you're interested.I think 74 were originally on the list but it was eventually reduced to 39 and they were successfully prosecuted.

EDIT; there is an interesting article here about this strange time in British film history and lists the films that were caught up in all the hullabaloo -www.angelfire.com

Watched Last House On The Left tonight for the first time. Perfectly watchable but in no way did it disturb me or make me feel dirty for watching it.
Craven says in one of the bonus features that it's a totally uncompromising film that refuses to make you feel comfortable, but all the slapstick with the police and the chickens, etc. totally took me out of the mood they had created. On top of that there are too many moments when it cuts away or there's a juddery bit of editing that highlights missing footage, so that doesn't help.

A lot of the film is surprisingly well acted and well shot though so it's not a complete waste of time.

I feel the same way although if we were watching it for the first time back in 1972 we'd probably be shocked.

Craven perfected the gritty feel in 'The Hills Have Eyes' (1978), but the setting was rather more fantasy, so it wasn't as disturbing - with Last House you feel it could happen to anyone you know....

Did you know.... Last House on the Left (1976) is based on an Ingmar Bergman film 'The Virgin Spring' (1960)?

Bought The Burning uncut off ebay the other day and was suprised at how tame it was. The score by Rick Wakeman was pretty good and Tom Savini's effects were quite impressive but it's a standard friday 13th rip-off.

The raft scene is good fun though. The only nasty that really shocked me was Cannibal Holocaust.Even the cut R2 is still shocking.

Just curious.

What do you all think of stuff like August Underground and Murder Set Pieces?

I was quite keen to see them but in the end I was rather disappointed. Yeah, each had their moments but...

Nevermind, I'm waiting for Ice from the Sun and Subconscious Cruelty

Murder-Set-Pieces is not very good, if anything some of it was funny and I'm sure it wasn't supposed to be. The 'head' scene being one that I remember..
