Last week, MGM announced a new "Collector’s Edition" DVD of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, no doubt to capitalize on the upcoming remake. The DVD hits store shelves on February 24th, 2009, and below you’ll find a brief press release and the DVD cover art: (courtesy of DVDActive.com)
MGM Home Entertainment has announced a collector’s edition of The Last House on the Left which stars Sandra Cassell, Lucy Grantham, and David Hess. The Wes Craven film will be available to own from the 24th February, and should retail at around $19.98. Extras will include commentary with actors David Hess, Marc Sheffler and Fred Lincoln, featurettes (Wes Craven, Celluloid Crime of the Century, Scoring Last House, Tales that Will tear Your Heart Out), a deleted scene (Mari Dying at the Lake), never-before-seen outtakes, Wes Craven’s annotated shooting scripts, and a photo gallery.
FANGORIA points out that you should hold on to your previous DVD editions of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. The Wes Craven/Sean Cunningham commentary is not on this new collector’s edition.
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. The remake due out early next year was directed by Dennis Iliadis (HARDCORE) from a script by Adam Alleca and stars Garret Dillahunt, Rhys Coiro, Sara Paxton (AQUAMARINE), Martha MacIsaac (SUPERBAD), Riki Lindhome, Tony Goldwyn (DEXTER) and Monica Potter (SAW).
