"the last house on the left." >> you guys get the hell out of here, i'm going to start screaming. >> a raw, ground-breaking film about rape and revenge. >> for many years people forbade me to be along from their church, to get away from their dogs. all the polite people that i knew, the people from my academic background that i still knew when i made that film, took big steps back. >> how do you know what's scary? >> it's an intuition. but it's based on things i've experienced in my life in one form or another. schoolyard bullies can be as frightening as freddy kruger to a teenager. >> reporter: in fact, his latest film "my soul to take," out next week, deals with a young man who lost his father.
