The Last House on the Left will be released on Friday, March 13.

Rogue Pictures’ The Last House on the Left is set for release on March 13th. The trailer, which premiered last week, was attached to a print of the 10pm screening of My Bloody Valentine 3D last night and received a fairly positive reaction from the crowd who responded to the preview’s “microwave gag.” []

Fox press junket: more about The Road and the Gang Member

Garret was promoting The Sarah Connor Chronicles at Fox’s midseason press junket. The first report is mainly about The Road. It’s up at SCI FI Wire.

“I play the Gang Member, and they meet up with a pretty nasty road gang toward the beginning, in the first quarter,” Dillahunt said in an interview on Tuesday in Los Angeles, where he was promoting Fox’s Sarah Connor Chronicles. “Yeah, in the truck. And me and Viggo have a great scene in the woods where I try to take his son. The big fight in the woods.”

Dillahunt said the film shot in winter in rural Pennsylvania, a bleak setting that mirrored the book’s grim landscape, which Dillahunt described as “beautiful in its spareness.”

“We shot in just horrific places, you know,” Dillahunt said. “We found this incredible stretch of road that hadn’t been used since 1964, outside of Pittsburgh, these incredible tunnels and everything, really spooky, and the trees are bare, freezing cold. And I think they assembled a group of people that’s very interested in preserving the book.” The movie is directed by John Hillcoat and written by Joe Penhall.

Dillahunt—who, unlike many of his characters, is the nicest guy possible—says the role made him wonder how he’d react in similar circumstances. “I like to think I’d be like Viggo’s character or Guy Pearce’s character, you know? I’d like to think that that’s how I’d respond to that crisis. But if I’m starving, I wonder what I would do. I’m pretty certain that it wouldn’t be cannibalism.”

Still, Dillahunt said that he had to get into the mindset of a cannibalistic marauder. “I had more sympathy for the guy when I tried to think of it in those terms,” he said, but added with a smile: “That might have been… too kind.”

Last House on the Left – new stills, comments, trailer news

Rogue Pictures has released a couple of new stills from The Last House on the Left. They are available at Fangoria Online.

From the same site:

Fango visited the South African set of LAST HOUSE ’09, and based on the cast’s remarks, this version isn’t dialing down the intensity. “This is a hard one,” Dillahunt tells us. “I think we’re in a bit of denial about some of the scenes. I’m sure the original cast had similar experiences.”

“I really feel this is going to do the original justice,” adds Aaron Paul, who co-stars as Francis. “People are going to be creeped the f**k out and disturbed. For instance, the scene with the Krug family and the girls in the woods—it’s just terrifying, and what Garret has done with Krug is just brilliant.”

Look for more of Fango’s on-set coverage of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT beginning in issue #281, on sale in February.

The trailer is being sent out with David Goyer’s The Unborn (Gary Oldman’s Nazi curse flick) and is expected to hit theatres this weekend, says
