Watched this tonight - having heard some random Scottish Cat Stevens lookalike raving about it and just about anything else with a nasty rape scene...

Suffice to say, it wasn't as unpleasant as I was expecting. That said, it's an enjoyable piece of exploitation with some rather pleasing eye candy and a rare, villianous turn from the man Lovelock.

The Japanese print is a little washed-out and grainy, for the most part - how does the Sazuma version compare?

That's right comp, its pure exploitation- doesn't have much in common with police & crime films besides the opening robbery sequence. Its a rape & revenge movie like NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS, HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, etc... The movie itself is no NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS but its still great Italian exploitation!

Perhaps you should consider adding an Italian/European (s)exploitation section to the forum?

By the way was it actually released anywhere under the title HOUSE BY THE BEACH???

The Sazuma DVD is well worth getting. Looks better than the Jap release and has great extras! Time to get rid of your Japanese disc! :)

I've only seen it listed under that title as it was released to cash in on the numerous LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT riffs including NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS which was also marketed under the title NEW HOUSE ON THE LEFT.

It was more commonly known as TERROR which is how i first saw it via the old UK and Greek tapes.
Gotta agree with Vigilanteforce the Sazuma dvd beats the Jap one hands down,also look out for the English track which is accessable via your remote only and is not advertised anywhere on the packaging or menu.

It's had a few different titles, 'House by the Beach', 'Last House by the Beach', 'Terror', 'The Seventh Woman'... So all are valid.

The only actual release titles on home video as far as I know though have been under the titles 'Terror' (Cinehollywood VHS in Greece and the UK) and La Settima Donna (Italian VHS and Japanese & Sazuma DVD).

The Sazuma DVD is superb, a must have for fans of Italian exploitation cinema. Great bonus CD in that package too!

xploitedcinema has had this for a couple of months now. The sazuma one. They also put out an exuberantly remastered edition of CANNIBAL FEROX that puts the Grindhouse release to shame only that one has superior extras. The sazuma does have lobby card repros though.

Thanks for that bit of info ;) I watched it in German, because a) I LOVE German dubs from the 70's/80's  - They add a whole other dimension to the entertainment value of your favourite exploitation titles. - and b) it's one of the early victims on Germany's seemingly endless list of banned movies. ::)

That Lovelock interview on the Sazuma list is defo worth a look. Though I don't agree with his views on violence in the movies, I found his perspective honest and straightforward. :-\

I was watching this a few nights ago (I grabbed the Sazuma edition from Xploited) and cracked up at the Bryan Ferry 'Lets Stick Together' riff scoring the bit where the Italian chicks sunbake.  Solid entertainment.

It had two swedish vhs releases, on Cinehollywood as Terror and on Walthers as Gisslan (Hostages). Great terrorfilm, got to love the ending!

The Sazuma DVD has a hidden English dub on it. Access it via your remote once the film is playing.
