An American family crossing the desert in a camper van are attacked by cannibalistic mutants who stalk their prey with the aid of CB radios. Not for the squeamish.

A derelict dump in a dismal, dusty desert. An old timer is planning to leave, hurriedly harbouring a feral girl who also seeks escape. A family of tourists - big car, bigger caravan - arrive in search of fuel and directions to a old silver mine. Despite the old timer's protestations that they go back to civilisation and stick to the main road, you know there's something out there and it might be crazed and demonic, but it's got more sense than they have. They're doomed, all doomed. This is a nuclear testing site and Air Force bombing range, and nobody is going to come looking for them. Did I say nobody?
What follows is a siege of the broken down car and caravan, the tourists slowly being picked off by a family of feral cannibals who watch from the hills then come looking for excitement and food.
Although marred by the cliché of the women doing a lot of emotional screaming while the men try to remain taciturn and phlegmatic, this is a superior horror movie. It's reminiscent of the Sawney Bean tradition famous in my part of Scotland. The horror gets a touch sentimental in places, and the bad guys are really just ugly nasties - there's little attempt to explain or elaborate their characters. The good guys, meanwhile, are probably just a touch too clean cut and stereotypical - and, I repeat, the women scream a lot.
"The Hills Have Eyes" builds on the tensions created by isolation and environment. This is civilised man confronted with the gradual stripping away of the trappings of civilisation - loss of wheels and mobility, loss of contact with the outside world, loss of food, loss of firepower, loss of life, loss of innocence. Surely anyone in this environment would return to the wild, become red in tooth and claw.

By far Wes Craven's best film. The Hills Have Eyes is grindhouse horror whacked up to the max.

A slow burner with characters and dialogue that keep you interested until the halfway mark where the mess hits the fan. Michael Berryman ever so delighful and a big softy in real life, is terrifying here.

The Hills Have Eyes is swamped in 70s nostalgia- a wonderful film that has not been bettered by the recent poor souless remakes.

Easy in my top 20 horrors of all time.

An essential purchase.

This film has the ingredients of a disaster - shockingly bad scripting, terrible acting, poor quality picture...but what the hell, it's still amazing!

A nice, all-American family are headed for California on the parents' wedding anniversary when they break down on a back road in the desert. Come night time, terror ensues - the dad is burnt alive, the youngest daughter is raped, the eldest daughter is shot, the mother is also shot and the baby taken for dinner. It's up to the survivors to rescue the baby and turn the tables.

It works really well. There is some fairly unpleasent tension, especially in the first half of the film before the family is attacked - you know that something is going to happen, and spend a lot of time anticipating it. It's not actually as shocking and brutal as its made out to be when the violence comes - the rape is, thankfully, played down a bit, and the gore surprisingly minimal. This does not detract from what is going on - it's still unpleasent viewing at times.

The main strength of this film is how Craven has us rooting for the family - they're shown as a nice, normal family, just trying to have a nice vacation, and they suffer so much. Several of the cannibal family members are suitably nasty, especially the rapist one, and you just want the nice family to win!

Brilliant stuff, a classic that has inspired many a modern horror movie. Watch this before you bother with the remake - this is the superior film.

Not much for me to say about this film that has not already been said.
It has not been bettered even though others have tried. It has certainly been imitated many times. Wrong turn, is one that springs to mind.
Wes Craven even tried to better this movie, but he failed also. In my opinion. The film is a bit dated, but if you like this type of film. Worth watching.

From the master of the macabre (Wes Craven) comes this sometimes brutal and really scary film. There's nothing like the original film where this one is concerned. Good storyline and excellent production from a decade of marvellous movies for the cinemagoers. 'Stay on the road, dont go through the desert...because the hills, still have 'eyes'.

Wes Craven began his film career in 1971 co-directing Together, a soft core documentary with Sean S. Cunningham. Cunningham would later go on to produce and direct the original Friday The 13th in 1980. Craven made his feature film debut with the gruesome Last House On The Left, beginning a lasting affair with the horror genre. Craven then gained some morbid inspiration for his next film, The Hills Have Eyes. Made in 1977 on a budget of around $250,000, this is one of the most influential horror films made. The story is about a family the Carters, that decides to celebrate Mom and Dad's Silver Anniversary by driving cross country and camping in a trailer along the way. Well, actually it's the father that decides that this a good idea and everyone else must go along with it.

As they trek along a "shortcut" through New Mexico they have serious car trouble, and are stranded in the middle of nowhere. This situation is made much worse by the fact that there are people living in the isolated desert hills... A deranged family of cannibals that terrorize the typical American family for different reasons: surviving, and the pleasure of torturing. The family, now, must try to survive in their tiny little dot of civilization stuck right in the middle of an unforgiving, big and bad primitive world. This is no contest Cravens best in my mind, he delivers a real, gritty, intense horror movie that in my mind is one of the best of the 70's.

The themes in The Hills Have Eyes can be interpreted as very deep, or merely as a scenario that leaves a family vulnerable to attack and terror. It's brutal and makes you wonder if it could happen to you and your family. Craven improved a lot and created a suspenseful, violent, raw movie.
