As most of you already know, opening tomorrow is the remake of Wes Craven’s “The Last House on the Left”. The film was directed by Dennis Iliadis and it stars Monica Potter, Sara Paxton, Garret Dillahunt and Tony Goldwyn.

For those unfamiliar with the original film, “Last House on the Left” explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who harmed their child. Here’s the synopsis:

The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari (Sara Paxton) and her friend are kidnapped by a prison escapee and his crew. Terrified and left for dead, Mari’s only hope is to make it back to parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe. And when her family learns the horrifying story, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House on the Left.

Anyway, while I’ve already posted my interviews with Garret Dillahunt and Sara Paxton, I’ve got two more and they’re with Director Dennis Iliadis and Wes Craven as well as Monica Potter. Both interviews came out great, and if you’re a fan of DVD’s and extras, Dennis reveals what you can expect.
