+ 1 (Plus One), the latest film from Greek director Dennis Iliadis (Hardcore), bases its plot around a pair of interesting questions: 1.) If you were given the chance to go back in time and rectify a terrible mistake, would you do so even though the previous outcome was the one meant to happen?; and 2.) How would you react to suddenly being confronted by a clone of yourself that has all of your memories but only up to a certain point in their life?
The first quandary is posed to David (Rhys Wakefield, The Purge), an aimless high school graduate whose college student girlfriend Jill (Ashley Hinshaw, Chronicle) feels that their relationship is going nowhere fast and David’s lack of future prospects is holding her back. These emotions are crystallized one afternoon when David mistakenly approaches Melanie (Natalie Hall, Pretty Little Liars) in the halls of the university believing at first that she’s Jill because the two of them look very much alike, but doesn’t reject Natalie when she kisses him in full view of the heartbroken Jill. With their romance in a free fall David and his friend Teddy (Logan Miller, Ultimate Spider-Man) decide to attend a massive blow-out being held at the home of local rich kid Angad (Rohan Kymel) that promises all manners of debauchery. Knowing that Jill will be at the party as well gives David the belief that he can still repair the damage he inflicted.

If someone hurt someone you love, how far would you go to get revenge?
That tagline perfectly sums up The Last House on the Left — the new horror movie remake of the 1972 Wes Craven classic. To look in the eyes of someone who has badly hurt or killed someone you love; that anger and confusion and complete uncertainty as to what to do next — a situation people can truly fear.
The movie follows John and Emma Collingwood (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter), as well as their daughter, Mari (Sara Paxton). The family is off to their lake house for a traditional and much-needed vacation from their busy lives. Not long after they arrive, Mari talks her parents into letting her borrow the car to go and see her old friend Paige (Martha MacIsaac) who works at a store near the summer home. While visiting her friend at the store, a very nervous looking boy named Justin (Spencer Treat Clark) comes in and attempts to buy a pack of cigarettes and is asked for an I.D. he obviously doesn’t have. The conversation turns friendly-flirty and a deal is eventually reached that in exchange for a free pass on the smokes, Justin would provide Paige with some high-quality smoking material of the illegal variety.
