Product Description

Hills Have Eyes DVD

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.

With his 2006 remake of Wes Craven's 1977 slasher 'The Hills Have Eyes' French director Alexandre Aja manages to accomplish what many directors fail to do by making his film a definite improvement over the original. With Craven on board as producer Aja sticks pretty closely to the first film's script and storyline but with the help of a larger budget special effects better actors and slick cinematography creates a much scarier story. While the film's setting is contemporary it maintains a 1970s feel in parts paying tribute to the decade in which the slasher subgenre was born. With an interesting opening-credit sequence consisting of actual nuclear testing footage we are told that the film's desert setting was the site of nuclear testing during the 1950s and '60s. Warned to vacate the miners that lived there refused to leave thus subjecting themselves to high levels of toxic radiation and breeding mutant babies as a result. It is this generation of now-grown mutants that the poor Carter family has the misfortune to encounter while driving through New Mexico on their way to California. When their vehicle breaks down in the desert the Carters are too busy bickering with one another to realise they have entered enemy territory. But it doesn't take long for the demented creatures living in the hills to make their presence known. The gore fest that follows is packed with terribly frightening scenes of the deformed killers delighting in the torment and intended kill of each family member young mothers teen girls and babies included. Much of the film is set in a government-created test city in which deteriorating mannequins take the place of actual humans. Posing lifelessly alongside their mutant neighbours these waxy figures provide a chilling backdrop for the graphic war between the mutants and their victims.

Customer Reviews

This movie is very gory, and has some scary and disturbing scenes. It also has big production values for this kind of movie. But despite all that, it is really not that good, and although it pays tribute in style (and has nearly the same plot) to the original, this remake feels less inspired than the original, one of the iconic slasher films. It is watchable, especially if you love gore (and is certainly better than the sequel).
