Director Dennis Iliadis shocked horror audiences with his work on the 2009 remake of Wes Craven’s classic The Last House on the Left, mostly because despite virtually everyone agreeing that this was a film that absolutely did not need a remake, the remake itself was actually considerably better than it should/could have been.

The independent horror film scene, perhaps more than independent film in general, often presents the dedicated fan with a peculiar problem.
