Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes 2 has always been a guilty pleasure for me. My mother was never fond of my watching horror movies while growing up and the VHS cover was too catchy to ignore. Because of this, I was bound and determined to enjoy it no matter what. Is it the most original for a sequel? No. But the story did keep me watching to find out who'd live and who wouldn't. And yes, the flashbacks from the dog's perspective are quite amusing. One strength the film has going for it is Harry Manfredini's score, which I hope one day sees an official release.
The difficult part in reviewing much more about the movie itself is actually getting to SEE the movie on this Blu-Ray disc. This is remastered? The audio quality is okay, but the picture quality is simply awful. The grain is ridiculous, the picture is dark to the point where I'm not convinced it's better than it looked on VHS and it appears the entire film was simply thrown out there to make a quick buck. Granted, it probably wasn't in terrific shape to begin with, but this is hardly a worthy effort on the part of Horizon movies.
