While the rest of the family agrees there are plenty of better and more appropriate things to do to celebrate an anniversary, they make do with what they have, but things take a turn after a sketchy gas station attendant informs them about a “short cut” that will take them in between a series of hills in the desert. It doesn’t take too long before they realise they’re not alone and the hills indeed do have eyes.
Plot: Based on Wes Craven’s 1977 suspenseful cult classic, 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.

S10 Reviews: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Plot: A family taking a road trip to celebrate the mother and father’s silver anniversary run afoul of another type of nuclear family, one that is cannibalistic and mutated.
Alexandre (High Tension) Aja wrote and directed this remake of the 1977 Wes Craven (who is attached as a producer) semi-classic. It sticks pretty much to the source material story-wise. Almost all of the original is replicated here but a few new wrinkles were thrown into the mix mostly having to do with Jupiter’s clan and their origins. A little bit of a political slant is thrown in for good measure but it’s not awfully heavy-handed and most will glance over it. The remake turns up the style quite a bit over the original no surprise considering the better budget and change in directors. The gore got bumped up significantly and the family looks more disgusting than ever. Now for the big question, how does it stack up to the original?. I say it did pretty well. The original had it’s flaws as well as this one but I think they were both done honestly and Aja did an excellent job trying to pay homage to the original and breathe more life into it. The acting is as good as you’d expect with a pretty good cast. Lovers of the original should be OK with it, I am.
Both the original and the remake score a 7.5 or 8 on my scale.
Not scary, just deeply unpleasant.
I’m not sure why anyone would watch this – to watch graphic violence, to be grossed out by the moronic mutants, or laugh as the armed male protagonists turn tail and run when presented with a clear opportunity for a killing blow on those that have terrorised them? One minute, the boy is running away from an unarmed mutant, shooting blindly behind him, the next he has the awareness to set a booby-trap for the same mutant – and when it blows, he laughs, having witnessed his mother’s heart being eaten moments before? There’s no dark humour, and it’s difficult to care for most of the protagonists, apart from the young mother, who gets killed anyway. Awful.
