Reviews:

“This movie is a good example of the heart and soul of guerilla filmmaking—nothing heavy thematically and not overly complicated. Two losers put into a crazy situation. I do wish the friendship of these two characters was explored more and that the characters had some redeeming qualities, but The Last House on the Street is what it is.” 22 Indie Street

“Although billed as a horror-comedy hybrid, I have to say that I didn’t really find this film all that funny. But, again, as written above, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good watch – only that the comedy was pretty minimal. There’s also not a whole lot to think about — no guessing at any plot points. You pretty much know what’s going on right close to the start…” Indy Red

“Two, very unlikable characters, portrayed by mediocre actors (I’m being kind here) and 95% of the film focuses on them […] It’s not funny, not thrilling, not horror… it’s kind of painful to sit through.” Null Unit

“The whole storyline in this film is completely unexpected and rewarding for attentive viewers […] Slow in its rollout (but nonetheless engrossing) and terrifying in what it ultimately discloses […] The Last House on the Street is both unsettling and unexpected…” Reel Reviews

” …somewhat reminiscent to direct-to-video horror comedies from the late 1980s and early 90s, with a couple of losers at the center of things that seem to be immediately relatable not despite but because of all their shortcomings, getting into situations that might be genre standards, but the film plays with them in an original and occasionally hilarious way.” Search My Trash
