Last House On Dead End Street (1977)
Last House On Dead End Street is notorious for its gruesome gore scenes but for me this is not where the horror is. For me this thing was so scary because of how bizarre it all was. This thing was shot on 16mm and 35mm and it is so gritty it makes Texas Chainsaw Massacre look like Avatar. The dubbing is so far out and weird and for some reason it makes Dead End Street that much more creepy. Then we have Terry Hawkins and his crew. They look like members of the Manson family and looking at it now, there is no doubt that the Manson murders inspired this thing.
Maybe someday some one will find the remaining footage for this thing and release it as the Fun House but until then we are stuck with Last House On Dead End Street and its a horrible thing to be stuck with (In a good way).
