Based on the original film by fright master Wes Craven, The Hills Have Eyes is the story of a family road trip that goes terrifyingly awry when the travelers become stranded in a government atomic zone. Miles from nowhere, the Carter family soon realizes the seemingly uninhabited wasteland is actually the breeding ground of a blood-thirsty mutant family...and they are the prey.
Cast & Crew
... a brilliantly reimagined version of Wes Craven's 1977 micro-budget horror classic ...
... a blast.
These Hills are more to be endured than enjoyed.
Hills' new mix of old elements somehow feels fresh.
Filled with gristle, gore and mutant mayhem, The Hills Have Eyes is a blood feast for horror fans hungering for something more than the by-rote splatter platters that lately have been filling movie theaters.
Hills is the unadulterated stuff, no cut, no chaser.
This vivid but brutal remake of Wes Craven's 1977 cult favorite The Hills Have Eyes made me a little sick with its gore and extreme violence.
