I heard that when this came out it was one of the most controversial movies ever made and that Wes Craven was the one that made it and it was banned for a long time. This article just established everything I said:
Return To “The Last House on the Left”

Rogue Pictures has closed a deal to remake “The Last House on the Left,” the controversial 1972 horror film that was banned for much of the last twenty years in the UK and jump started Wes Craven’s career reports Variety.
The original followed a pair of adventurous teen girls who are kidnapped, raped and murdered by a gang of thugs. The killers unwittingly hole up in the home of one victim’s parents, who, upon realizing what their guests did, devise gruesome revenge.
Craven, who wrote and directed the original, will produce the remake which is eyeing an early 2007 start date. This follows in the success of this year’s “The Hills Have Eyes”, a similar early Craven effort that got the remake treatment.
Craven also confirms that new versions of his 1989 flick “Shocker” and 1991’s “People Under the Stairs” are also in the works.
I don’t mind them remaking Wes Craven’s movies, as long as he’s ok with it and as long as they don’t remake A Nightmare on Elms Street, because that should never be touched…ever!
