Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
If you think angering a mother bear could be dangerous, imagine what might happen if you unwittingly crossed paths with the parents of a young woman whom you had kidnapped, beaten and raped. That’s the sort of reception Krug (Garrett Dillahunt) and his fellow escaped convicts receive from the Collingwoods (Tony Goldwin and Monica Potter) when they attempt to hide out in The Last House On the Left.
Cast: Garrett Dillahunt, Tony Goldwin, Monica Potter.

Of Special Note:
Other, less violent movies have also explored the theme of how to treat others who have mistreated you. In The Mighty, a teenaged boy has to confront his childhood fears when his father is released from prison. A young girl finds some help in dealing with her emotionally scarred past, from three sisters who teach her about The Secret Life of Bees.
