Trivia / The Last House on the Left

  • Actor Allusion: Mari in the remake is a champion swimmer. She's played by Sara Paxton, who previously played a mermaid in Aquamarine
  • Dawson Casting: It can be pretty hard to take Junior seriously in the original film, as he looks about the same age as his father.
  • Enforced Method Acting:
    • On the special edition DVD actors commentary track, the actors playing Krug and Weasel boast about how they terrorized the actresses playing Mari and Phyllis, right down to hinting during the filming of the rape scene that they'd go ahead and actually commit the act if they didn't think the actresses' performances were convincing enough. They seem to think this is awesome.
      • ...and David Hess complained that he couldn't ride the subway anymore, for the dirty looks he was getting. No wonder.
    • The part where they make Phyllis pee her pants? For real.
  • Playing Against Type: Riki Lindhome from Garfunkel And Oates and Another Period plays Sadie, Krug's wife.
  • What Could Have Been: Vestron tried making a sequel (directed by Danny Steinmann) in the 1980s. Ultimately, the proper permission to create a sequel was never secured.
