Wes Craven’s Westport

News of Wes Craven’s death brought this note from Chris Grimm:

He filmed his first feature, “Last House on the Left,” partially in Westport.

The graveyard scene was at Merritt Parkway exit 41, but what was the house where much of the filming took place? Nobody seems to know!

The film was produced by Westporter Sean Cunningham.

According to Wikipedia, “Last House” was made on a modest budget of $87,000. It was released in the US on August 30, 1972 — 43 years ago yesterday — and grossed over $3 million domestically.
