Joe Lynch's... LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT?!Share on Facebook
But... while combing through the personal blog of filmmaker Joe Lynch, I found what I consider to be a really interesting take on LAST HOUSE, one that I personally would've liked to have seen.
Lynch has posted his full presentation (complete with test video and storyboards) for how he would've "updated" THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. This was his actual pitch for the film back in 2006, which would've set it in a more common, easily identifiable (and relatable) backyard & house in the suburbs. Can you imagine LAST HOUSE taking place on a dead-end street of a regular suburb, like the one you live in? The heartbreaking and brutal rape taking place in the girl's backyard a mere few feet away from her unbeknownst father upstairs? Or the 'murder in the lake' scene happening in a neighbor's backyard pool? Go the the following link to see & read for yourself:
Keep in mind, it is not our intention to belittle or compare this to the work of the filmmakers behind the current remake. It's just a really cool "might've/could've been" look from a filmmaker that we personally admire.
