Film: House on the Edge of the Park
House on the Edge of the Park is a horror/thriller movie released in 1980 directed by Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust). It stars David Hess and Giovanni Lambardo Radice. Two lowlife punks, Alex and Ricky(played by Hess and Radice respectively) invite themselves to a party at a posh villa and after being taunted by their snobbish hosts, hold everybody hostage and subject them to various torture and mayhem.The film was classified as a Video Nasty but has since been released. It is regarded as a sleazier and more inferior version of The Last House on the Left.
This film has the following tropes:
- Ax-Crazy: Alex is cut from practically the same cloth as Hess' other legendary role.
- Butt Monkey: The hosts. Enforced Trope though as it turned out. Ricky is a straighter version.
- Expy: Alex of Krug.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Tom and the other hosts.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The rape victim at the beginning turns out to be the host Tom's sister and he deliberately invited Alex to the party so he could execute revenge.
- Rape and Revenge
