Just got this email from amazon.ca:
We're sorry to report the release of the following item has
been cancelled:

Wes Craven (Director), et al "Last House on the Left
[WS]"

Although we'd expected to be able to send this item to you, we've since
found it won't be released after all. Please accept our sincerest
apologies for any inconvenience we've caused you.

We've cancelled this item from your order.
Anyone have any idea why or what happened?

I just got a copy of this over the weekend (a store I go to often breaks street dates) so I don't know what the story is from your on-line dealer.

Yet another Amazon.ca screw up. They'll have it back again in a couple of months at a higher price.

I'm pretty sure dOc has a review copy already too, so it is coming out.

This is Canada, so it's probably being released by Alliance Atlantis so they can Frenchize the cover or something, who knows... heh.

Actually, very few MGM titles are released late in Canada, but I do remember Mannequin was released late.. in fact, I'm not sure it's even in Canada yet? So they may have pulled it from Canada shelves?

Chris.

Damn, I completely forgot about Ron's review. Thanks for the confirmation.

Could it even have something to do with this disc being uncut and unrated? Does Canada have any censorship over there?

Not nearly as much as the States. I don't think that's the problem.

Another thread reported the same thing about the Pulp Fiction SE being "cancelled"

Maybe Amazon.ca isn't quite running up to speed yet?

Well, then, I'm just gonna order it from a "Canada-friendly" US etailer, just like I'm gonna have to do for Pulp and Jackie Brown. Stupid country. Stupid MGM. Stupid dual languages on DVD cases.

Sorry, I'm ranting and venting. But thanks for the heads-up from y'all.

I mentioned this in the Rons Review Thread. I noticed Reel.com took it off their release list about a week ago.

I was wondering why

Is Last House On The Left actually banned in Canada? I was under the impression that movies could only be banned by individual provinces (for instance, 5 years ago Pink Flamingos was banned in Nova Scotia, but not in Ontario). In any case, I was looking forward to this DVD and am annoyed by this news.
