Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


The forbidden films referred to here generally contain the intention of satirizing society and mankind. There are no more than three reasons for being banned: excessive pornographic rendering (sadistic love, abnormal love, incest love, etc.), bloody violent scenes (murder, torture, etc.) and exaggerated film techniques (stage effect, dialogue, action, props, etc.). The first kind of cases are Caligula, sensory world, anatomy of hell, etc; The second situation mainly includes “killing regardless of left or right”, “I spit on your grave”, “irrevocable” and so on; The third category is relatively dramatic. The representative videos are magic baby, sewer mermaid, Sodom 120 days, etc.

The movie “killing without distinction” is a horror film made in the United States in 1972. The video is not long. Due to different deletions made by countries, the duration varies from 64 minutes to 84 minutes. The dialogue is in English and French. The plot of the story is: Mary is the daughter of a middle-class family. Although her family is not rich, she is also happy. The night before Mary’s 20th birthday, she went shopping with her good friend Phyllis. At puberty, they were full of strong curiosity about the unknown world. On the way, they had the idea of buying marijuana to smoke. They found several sellers engaged in drug trading on the street. When they entered the door of the group, they found that they had been deliberately kidnapped. The next day, four criminals took them to the jungle in the suburbs and abused them wantonly. Phyllis came up with a dangerous move to escape. She led three of them away, and Mary tried hard to persuade one of the young people left to let her go. Phyllis ran desperately, panicked, fell into a circle of three, and was stabbed to death by the angry criminal. Mary was also recaptured by the three people who were driven back on the escape road and shot dead after being brutally raped. The four fled to a family for the night, but it was Mary’s house. Mary’s parents were very anxious to see that her daughter had not returned for a long time and had reported the case. While entertaining four people, Mary’s mother accidentally found traces of their killing Mary when she was tidying up their clothes. Through the wall, Mary’s parents found her daughter’s body by the lake. In grief and anger, the couple intoxicated the three and separated them (the young man committed suicide because he was insane after witnessing the shooting scene), and then killed the killers one by one by more cruel means. When the police came, they found Mary’s parents crying silently in the face of the prepared birthday cake

The English name of the video is “the last house on the left”, which is translated into “killing regardless of left and right”. Just like the translation of “Caligula” into “the erotic history of the Roman Empire”, it is a gimmick deliberately made by film distributors in order to attract attention and increase sales. English film title refers to the location of Mary’s house in the film, which plays a certain role in promoting the development of the plot. The story revolves around Mary’s residence. The place where she plays with Phyllis and the place where the kidnappers kill her are not far from Mary’s home. It is worth mentioning that taking location as the title objectively means increasing tension.

After 200 years of constitutional rule, the domestic security situation in the United States should be much better than that in developing countries. Otherwise, a middle-class family would not easily choose to settle down in such a remote place, and a mailbox with family address would be erected on the avenue to inform passers-by. Who knows, the gangsters just took advantage of the carelessness of the gentleman’s country, openly kidnapped the people who kept themselves in line, and carried out criminal activities under the eyes of the people around them, until they killed the parties. This can not be said to be a tragedy caused by the loophole of the social system. So the victim didn’t make any mistakes? Obviously not. Obviously, it is the impulse to smoke marijuana that makes the two poor girls deep in hell and unable to ask for help from the outside world. It can be said that a mistake has become eternal hatred. Apart from their curiosity, the decadent thoughts left over by the Vietnam War to American youth can not be ignored. The Vietnam War, which broke out in 1964 and stopped in 1973, branded an indelible psychological trauma on a whole generation of Americans. By 1972, the war had basically subsided, but the seeds of scars sown by returning American soldiers were everywhere. How many young people began to smoke marijuana, depressed and degenerated in the fog. From the perspective of the landscape characteristics and dialogue language of the video, the two girls living on the US Canada border are less affected by this trend of thought, and the behavior is still so. It is conceivable that the mental state of the whole American people is different.

In addition, the careless handling of the police after taking over the case and the unexpected teasing on the way to the crime scene also highlight the inherent humor of ordinary Americans. The indifference of tramps and truck drivers to the work of the police and even malicious jokes and mockery have not only brought some comic effects to the video, but also undoubtedly added fuel to the fire of life-threatening cases. With humorous and relaxed music, the audience has a funny taste on the surface, but it is sweating for the girls in the heart. It should be pointed out that this artistic technique is not used properly, and the coordination and unity of video style has been broken. Whether it should be attributed to the general mentality of pursuing novelty and seeking differences caused by the prevalence of hippies at that time, let’s put it aside for the time being.

The video also focuses on the good and evil of human nature. In fact, the young man guarding Mary didn’t want to be with the three gangsters. He just had to drive for them before he got on the thief ship. He pleaded with Mary to allow her to flee the scene and wanted to go away with her. After seeing Mary killed, he was in a trance and talked nonsense in his sleep. Finally, he couldn’t stand the torture of his heart and shot himself to end the pain. Although the three gangsters were heinous, when they raped Mary and saw Mary go to the lake in pain, the sad background music sounded, the three were silent, their hands holding the dagger hung down involuntarily, and their ferocious eyes showed an imperceptible softness. Such close ups are the highlights of the film. Although they have no impact on the development of things (a few minutes later, the criminal still raises a pistol to Mary who is not in the center of the lake), they create a soothing atmosphere and give the audience a short time to think. The theory of good nature and evil nature is a debate topic in the debate of Confucianism in ancient China. Westerners naturally know little about Confucianism, but it does not prevent them from unconsciously mixing such rational brilliance in the film. The newly produced South African video gangster also has a similar exploration of human nature, which can be used as a reference for each other.

There are not many naked scenes in this film, just two or three. According to officials, the reason for being banned is largely the extreme authenticity of the scene, which has almost reached the level of documentary. From stepping into the criminal’s house, the girl went through several episodes of struggle and resistance – humiliation – planning to escape – unfortunately caught – tragically killed, which is simply a reproduction of the original facts of the case! The helpless cry of the girl, the proud grin of the criminal, the torn look of the victim’s parents, together with the bloody dagger and the body with a broken stomach, give people a strong visual shock. But look at today’s Hollywood blockbusters, whether it’s the wax museum of terror, nude cutting, or the soul of the chainsaw and guillotine Valley, the degree of flesh and blood and the special effects adopted are higher than those in the ignorant stage, which makes people suspect that it is banned and there is no inside story. After all, What the members of the Film Censorship Committee think is much more complicated than the plot of the film. In any case, as a representative of early horror films, killing regardless of the left and right will certainly leave its special position in the film world, whether it is beautiful or ugly, good or evil.

In 2002, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the film “killing people everywhere”, the original director revisited his hometown and produced a documentary “this is just a film” introducing the video shooting process and gags. He invited the original team to play and correct the name of the film that had a far-reaching impact on later horror films. This is gossip. I sincerely wish Ms. Sandra Kessel, who plays Mary, and Ms. Lucy Grantham, who plays Phyllis, a happy life for the rest of their lives. I also hope that such human tragedies will disappear forever.
