Produced for the 30th anniversary of the film's theatrical release, this documentary gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a film about brutal murder and even more brutal revenge that has become one of the classics of the modern horror genre. Includes interviews with the cast and crew, including director Wes Craven, who relates some of the difficulties he had getting the film finished and released.Written by

it's only a documentary, it's only a documentary, it's...
In this barely thirty minute featurette, it covers the basics of what went into making the low-budget film. The cast, writing, advertisements, how they came up with the title and the advertising campaign are all covered fairly well. OK, granted that Wes Craven didn't come off as much of a pompous little jerk as he usually does, I'll give him that. Most of the actors also don't like to be associated with this film, and who in their right mind could really blame them for that? I've seen better documentaries, but I've also seen worse. This documentary can be located on the special edition DVD of "The Last House on the Left"
