Craving for some early Craven, anyone?

Wes Craven, the director that has been making us all scream since the 70’s, has decided to remake one of his own movies. His first one to be precise. “The Last House on the Left” was Craven’s 1972 debut film. It had a great tagline “To avoid fainting, keep repeating ‘It’s only a movie….it’s only a movie.’”

According to Variety, the new installment is slated to be re-written by Adam Alleca and directed by Dennis Iliadis. He is planning on producing through his company, Midnight Pictures, in conjunction with Rogue Pictures.

Craven has said that he is looking to re-make some his own early film because he has more ownership control over them. Talk has also been bantered about to re-make the 1991 “The People Under the Stairs.”

I, for one, would like to see a re-make of 1984’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. Then again, how can you get better than Johnny Depp getting sucked into a bed and a river of blood spewing forth?
