Ideology Critique in American Literature and Film during the Seventies
Additional Notes on Authors / Auteurs
Wes Craven envisioned titles like Sex Crime of the Century or Krug and Company for his film The Last House on the Left. But unfortunately these titles were not inciting audiences to watch the film. Someone from PR recommended the title The Last House on the Left because ‘last’ and ‘left’ had an uncanny notion. Audiences responded to this title and thus it became the title of the film. Craven states the title does not have anything to do with the film. It is ironic that the title itself illustrates the gap between language and world.388
Other films by Wes Craven include The Hills have Eyes (1977), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988), and Scream (1996).
