The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking into two very different movies from very different directors that both disappointed them, in somewhat different ways. "The Virgin Spring" is an Oscar-winning rape revenge film from Igmar Bergman, and it was remade into a low-budget 1972 exploitation movie by Wes Craven, the hugely successful "Last House on the Left." The guys watch both and discuss the problems in both and especially the issues of tone and execution with the remake somehow considered a genre classic.
