If you've seen "Last House On The Left" then you pretty much know what you are in for (since this was a semi-sequel in Italy). It's definitely memorable, brutal and disturbing yet satisfying in some way. What happens is that two young girls are on the train home for Christmas when they are accosted by two thugs and a weird older woman who hangs out with them. Soon of course things get out of hand, and well I don't want to ruin anything so let's just say that there is rape, there is revenge and it's really darned dark and creepy (especially the older lady character). This is one of those things that will linger, and really I think it's more effective than last house because here there isn't that comedic relief (the bumbling cops) in this one.
