Bad Houses

The Last House on Dead End Street

I found an interesting parallel in the two films from The List that I rented this weekend. They were Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Cure and Roger Watkins’s The Last House on Dead End Street.

Central to both films are abadoned, decrepit buildings. In Cure—a serial killer film that is more about mood and psychological tension than the gorefest that is LHODES—it’s an old hospital.
