If you’ve been watching horror movies over recent years (especially the ones that find their way directly to DVD) then you’ll probably know how they go... kids (annoyingly attractive), drive to wilderness (totally remote and beyond the reach of anyone’s cell phone) and encounter X (could just be basic human rednecks, could be vampire things that live underground – it doesn’t really matter). From there it’s your average ‘stalk ‘n slash’ until the last teen is left standing.

‘The Hills Run Red’ is hardly a classic, but at least it makes some attempt to be a little bit different. Okay, so the attractive teens go to your average out-of-the-way place and fall foul to... (well, you have to watch the film to find out), but at least the film-makers know the ‘horror conventions’ and do their best to subvert them. The teens are investigating a ‘legendary’ eighties horror film that has somehow got lost among the way, therefore there are plenty of references to horror movies’ conventions and they do manage to break them here and there.

The acting is about what you’d expect from a B-movie and the kills are inventive (although some people might notice the excessive use of CGI here and there) and, as I’ve mentioned, there’s a few little differences that makes this one (at least) worth a watch if you’re into the genre. Yes, it’ll never be in the same league as the original Texas Chainsaw film, but it’ll while away an hour and a quarter if you have time (and teenagers) to kill.

As any discerning horror fan knows, sometimes you have to trawl through an awful lot of bilge before you hit upon something worthwhile. Having sat through an awful amount of said bilge of late, it was with some trepidation that I sat down to watch "The Hills Run Red". Even the title seemed a little strained.

Thankfully within minutes of it opening, and it has a particularly gross opening by the way, I knew I was in good hands! Firstly, it didn't look cheap and the credits were nicely rendered (it's amazing what a difference this can make to first impressions!) and, secondly, the actors could clearly act, which is always a bonus!

The story, such as it is and without giving much away, involves a young man's obsession with a notorious and unavailable slasher movie from the 80's. His quest to find out about him leads him and his small gang of friends to the woods and, as ever, there are very bad things lurking in them thar woods!

What followed was a good old fashioned, unapologetically nasty and creepy horror with more blood and guts than a messy abattoir!

Those who don't appreciate the genre may pick holes in the plot and moan about the general level of unpleasantness on display here but, for the true horror fans, this is what it's all about!

It's a no-brainer to watch, no doubt about it, but that's generally what I want from my horror, I want to see lots of killing and gore and occasionally, just occasionally mind, ask myself WHY I'm enjoying it!

On that front, THRR certainly delivers! The gore hounds among you will be satisfied by this one. It doesn't shy away from what's going on. It also boasts a pretty creepy, iconic-looking bad guy in Babyface who, once upon a time at least, would've surely been fit for a franchise.

Another horror film that's been hyped up beyond belief. And yet again is a total let down when I finally get to watch it. This has nothing new to add to the slasher genre. The plot is dull; the twists are predictable right from the beginning. Cliché' moments throughout with spooky china dolls and children's Nursery rhymes. A deformed killer with complete with mask and mummy issues. That's not to say that it is all bad? I did still somewhat enjoy it. The acting is above par for a horror flick. William Sadler and Sophie Monk stand out in particular. Also there are some nice gore and unsettling moments of torture. But all in all I have seen much better attempts at 80's slasher homage's.

* 'It's not real until you shoot it: Making The Hills Run Red': 28:17 min. documentary

The second half of the film, involving all the violent and gore sequences is without doubt the best part in this production. Seems director Dave Parker feels rather more comfortable telling and depicting raw horror scenes than with the rest of the film. After a brief opening sequence showing the origin of the demented killer we find ourselves overwhelmed by a quick succession of nude scenes. No complains about this, but feels a bit strange to me, like having desserts without taking the second course... Then we have some typical clichéd moments, some chatter here, some chatter there... until the action really begins, and from that moment on we are in for a quite disturbing killing spree that recalls me The Texas Chain Saw Massacre at times but with a more gruesome and gory touch. The Hills run red is truly a gore fest.
