The film that pretty much set the tone for Last House on the Left a few years later. Much of the same themes are explored. Two girls go out into woods. One goes off the beaten path and encounters in this case, two shepherds who rape and murder the girl. Later they go unwittingly to the house of the Father who is unaware that these are the two that have murdered his daughter. One he finds out, he enacts a horrifying revenge. A Bergman masterpiece and has a thought provoking theme that can prompt for discussion. It's one of those movies that sticks with you after it's conclusion.

A good place to start if you haven't seen a Bergman movie before
