The Film
A trio of escaped mental patients lure some call girls to a Hollywood mansion for some sexual and Satanic fun but the boyfriend of one of the girls will try to stop their nasty plans before he loses his love forever.

THE LAST HOUSE is a low budget, sexually charged, horror thriller filled with notable names to fans of the genre. From Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) to Jason Mewes (Mallrats) and adult film star Joanna Angel, it is Ezra Buzzington (Rob Zombie's Halloween, The Hills Have Eyes) that shines as the head psycho. It is Buzzington's performance that is what you need to see in THE LAST HOUSE. He is believably chilling, leaving your skin with a trail of goosebumps.

THE LAST HOUSE is violent and bloody, a little bit sexy even if that area is a bit understated for how big of a role it plays in the film and a bit twisted from start to finish. Come for the horror, stay for Ezra Buzzington. Keeping the review short is best for this film. I wasn't a big fan of the whole thing, I found it to be convoluted and long in the tooth, trying to be too many things without being great at any one of them but I have to repeat that Ezra Buzzington is spectacular and his performance alone makes the film worth watching.

The Audio & Video
Wild Eye Releasing gives THE LAST HOUSE a nice DVD presentation with an anamorphic widescreen transfer with deep black levels and a crisp and clean picture quality. Colors and skin tones are natural and are pleasing to the eye overall. The stereo audio is clear, free of any distortions or background noise. It's a nice mix between the dialogue and music.

The Extras
-Audio Commentary with the Director
-Deleted Scenes
-Cinemayhem Interview with the Director
-Gorezone UK Premiere

The Bottom Line
This isn't the best film you're going to watch this year, or even this month. It is heavily flawed but I just loved Buzzington's performance enough to warrant a recommendation.
