The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
USA / English
"The lucky ones die first.
"A suburban American family is being stalked by a group of psychotic people who live in the desert, far away from civilization.
Brutal,savage and unrelenting - the way horror film should be.
A family on their way to California come across a rundown gas station
in the middle of the New Mexico desert.They then think they're taking a
shortcut through the hills,thanks to the kindly suggestion of the gas
attendant,but find themselves stranded in the middle of no where.And to
make things worse,the whole thing was a trap so a group of deformed
mutants can butcher and eat them."The Hills Have Eyes" remake was made
by Alexandre Aja,the guy behind "Haute Tension".It offers plenty of
nasty violence and gore,several scenes with nail-biting tension and a
few solid scares.One of the most radical departures from Wes Craven's
original is to give the cannibals back-stories.In the 2006 movie,they
are miners who were deformed by the radiation fallout from 1940s and
1950s nuclear testing.The trailer attack sequence is wonderfully
audacious and the violence is brutal and bloody.Aja manages to unsettle
the viewer few times,such as when he intercuts the burning alive of the
family matriarch Bob with the suggested rape of younger daughter
Brenda.The mutant and gore effects by Howard Berger and Gregory
Nicotero are excellent and the photography of the desert landscape is
great.A must-see for fans of intense survival horror!
