4.0 out of 5 stars Superior horror movie
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars classic?
A family are travelling form New York to Los Angeles and along the way they take a detour to visit the old family mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Major Disappointment, 14 Mar 2004
This review is from: The Hills Have Eyes (2 Disc Special Edition) [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
Having recently enjoyed the excellent Wrong Turn and worthy remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I decided to check out this movie after hearing about it's influence on modern horror flicks and positive reviews from some people. Sadly, it didn't live up to the hype. Unlike the previous films mentioned,'The Hills Have Eyes' creates no suspense, no sense of danger, and no gore (surely, three pre-requisites of any standard horror movie). The bogeymen of the film, the faux- flintstone looking cannibals, fail to deliver on the scare front, and are introduced far too early in the film for the audience to feel any real tension or foreboding about what is 'out there'. What 'Wrong Turn' and 'TCM' do so well, is they are able to create real tension for at least the first quarter of the film; the period when the audience doesn't know what's going on, and doesn't see who's doing the killings. 'The Hills Have Eyes' fails to do this, and, as such lost my interest within the first twenty minutes. All in all, not recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?, 18 Oct 2007
This review is from: The Hills Have Eyes [DVD] (DVD)
Why this film is considered a classic is beyond me. the acting is poor, the lighting effects are terrible. Everything about the film is an utter joke. Watch the re-make, it is 100 times better than this pile.

2.0 out of 5 stars The hills have eyes, 25 Oct 2003
This review is from: The Hills Have Eyes (2 Disc Special Edition) [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
All i can say is do not buy this,i wonder of youll get to see this so-called review.I am so tired of having a dvd in my hands,that says the true running time of the film,and yet is so badly censored.It really is a pain.The cover states 89mins,but it runs for 1hr and 25mins,wheres the other 4 mins gone!!I checked on the BBFC website,and got even more confused!!This is a rip off,they did it with I spit on your grave,and Last house on the left,whats happened to the customers rights?Surely its illegal to advertise the incorrect running time on a dvd/video cover!More illegal and stupid than the films contents!!So dont but this dudes!!!Stay away!!!!
