Product Description

Product Description

Wes Craven produces this remake of his 1977 classic of the same name, about the Carters, an idyllic American family travelling through the great American southwest. The family's trip takes a detour into an area closed off from the public, but more importantly from society. An area originally used by the U.S. Government for nuclear testing that was intended to be empty - or so they thought. When the Carters' car breaks down at the old site, they're stranded - or are they? The Carters soon realise that what seemed like a car casually breaking down, might actually be a trap, perpetrated by the inhabitants of the site planning a gruesome massacre.

From Amazon.co.uk

Boasting an upgrade in production values, The Hills Have Eyes should please new-generation horror fans without offending devotees of Wes Craven's original version from 1977. There's still something to be said for the gritty shock value of Craven's low-budget original, made at a time when horror had been relegated to the pop-cultural ghetto, mostly below the radar of major Hollywood studios. With the box-office resurgence of horror in the new millennium--and the genre's lucrative popularity among the all-important teen demographic--it's only fitting that French director Alexandre Aja should follow up his international hit High Tension with a similarly brutal American debut to boost his Hollywood street-cred. Working with cowriter Gregory Levasseur, Aja remains surprisingly faithful to Craven's original, beginning with a bickering family that crashes their truck and trailer in the remote desert of New Mexico (actually filmed in Morocco), where they are subsequently terrorized, brutalized, and murdered by a freakish family of psychopaths, mutated by the lingering radiation from 331 nuclear bomb tests that were carried out during the 1950s and '60s. After several killings are carried out in memorably grisly fashion, it's left to the survivors to outsmart their disfigured tormentors, who are blessed with horrendous make-up (especially Robert Joy as freak leader "Lizard") but never quite as unsettling as the original film's horror icon, Michael Berryman. In Aja's hands, this newfangled Hills is all about savagery and de-evolution, reducing its characters to a state of pure, retaliatory terror. It's hardly satisfying in terms of storytelling (since there's hardly any story to tell), but as an exercise in sheer malevolence, it's undeniably effective.-- Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
During the 1950's and 60's, the US Government carries out nuclear testing in the New Mexico desert. The radioactive fallout infects the local population, and over the coming generations, gives rise to a breed of mutated, cannibalistic psychopaths. The make up and prosthetics used on the actors to portray this group of maniac hillbillies, is very well done and stomach churning. A bickering family of seven, with two German Shepherds, is travelling through the desert, in a truck and trailer home. The cannibals use spikes to puncture the tyres on the truck, leaving the family stranded in the middle of nowhere. One of the dogs is brutally slain, and then, one by one, four of the family is dispatched by the mutants in suitably gory fashion. The three remaining family members and dog are then left to fight for survival through the pitch dark night of the desert. This movie is a successful remake of Wes Craven's original, which was made 30 odd years ago. I remember watching the original as a boy in my early teens, and I never forgot viewing the bald-headed, bug-eyed leader of the cannibals bite off the head of a canary. The remake is actually quite faithful to the original, although not to the extent of being a slavish shot for shot reproduction. This time around it's a love bird which becomes a snack for one of the cannibals. The final half hour is especially tense and gripping, as one of the survivors, assisted by his fierce Alsatian, goes head to head with the cannibal family. The setting of the movie, in the rocky outcrops of the desert, makes it visually impressive.Read more ›

Format: DVD
Ah, the homely, squabbling Carter family. Traveling through the Nevada desert on the way to San Diego. When suddenly their trailer is beset with punctures and promptly crashes off the road. Was this an accident? Or is there here, in a place where atomic testing was done years before, really eyes in them thar hills?

So here it be, yet another horror remake of an older much loved picture from the age of the X certificate. Taking on the task, and wrath of fans, for The Hills Have Eyes is Alexandra Aja. Aja, boasting good horror credentials after directing 2003s Haute Tension (Switchblade Romance), actually pulls it off rather well. Sure it at times feels like he's confused as to if it wants to be "horror porn" or a "boo jump scary movie" but by and large it's a dirty damn grimy chiller.

Once Aja submitted his cut to the US censors for classification, word quickly spread that it was so grotty and sick it got the death knell NC-17. Rumours were rife that the film was so disgusting, people were walking out of test screenings feeling ill. There is no such thing as bad publicity, but in this case it became a bad case of unachievable expectations, the desensitised MTV crowd just wasn't enamoured with it. This was after all a hip horror director in waiting, aided on production duties by Wes Craven himself {director of the original}, throw in the shrewdly out there press reports, well it should have been the second coming of the anti-Christ in many eyes.

Yet now it's finally getting support in the right circles, and that's rightly so. For Aja builds his film up nicely with an extended introduction to our characters, whom we know are soon to be desperately violated.

Format: DVD
Most modern-day horror films are good for a bit of a scare on a Friday evening, resulting in the ocassional launch of popcorn into the air at jumpy-moments. However, this 2006 remake of the Hills Have Eyes maybe doesn't fall into that category..

The basic plot of the film is quite similar to other horror films in that it follows a family who are travelling through the desert of New Mexico enroute to San Diego. When their truck and trailer is run off the road and damaged..they become stranded. Que no phone signal or way of contacting anybody..safe to say, the family decide to explore the desert to find some help..

The intuitive film viewer will see the dangers here..the arid, vast desert, scuttling scorpions, and the rising hills. It's the perfect scenario for danger and malevolence..but of course our characters don't seem that phased by just how 'alone' they are out there..

What follows is a seemingly endless series of events, from the bloody to the downright questionable - a film of a particular genre that in today's society would only just be accepted. Don't get me wrong, the film is interesting and has you on the edge of your seat and the storyline makes for a promising horror chase.

First time horror flickers and those who don't enjoy the fantasy of blood, guts, gore and personal assault should steer clear, but those who enjoy a good fright, a good bit of gore will enjoy this graphic and intelligent remake of the 70s Craven movie.

A family travelling to California are told of a shortcut through the mountains that will get them to their destination quicker. After the tyres of their camper van are punctured they find themselves at the mercy of a group of cannibalistic survivors from Government nuclear testing, who begin to kill the family members one by one.
Wes Craven's 'The Hills Have Eyes' made in 1977 is in my opinion his masterpiece. Anybody attempting a remake really would have a hard act to follow. So the fact that Alexandre Aja succeeds so admirably is quite an acievement.
Apart from a few concessions to modern technology, the remake remains faithful to the original. There is also a refreshing lack of CGI effects.
It may lack the raw power of Craven's original, but Aja's remake is still shocking, extremely gory and has a cohesive narrative. Where this film does score heavily is with its depiction of the radiation affected mutants and their twisted sense of family loyalty. There is real tension in the passage of the film where Doug goes in search of his kidnapped baby and walks through the mine shaft into a forgotten world, an abandoned nuclear test facility complete with charred mannaequins and example after example of unspeakable horror.
So a terrific film, both taken on its own merits and in comparison to the fantastic original. 5 out of 5
