There have been several "special edition" packages for LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT overseas, but this seems to be the most complete edition in terms of bonus content that a US DVD release has ever seen.
Written & directed by Wes Craven (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) and produced by Sean Cunningham (FRIDAY THE 13TH), the 1972 shocker starred David Hess, Sandra Cassell, Lucy Grantham, Fred Lincoln, Jeramie Rain, Marc Sheffler, Richard Towers and Cynthia Carr.
