The Hills Have Eyes

Rated 4.0

With the current crop of terror features, those of us who have been whining about wimpy horror films are getting payback with a vengeance. The latest is a remake of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes, where a family on a cross-country trek encounters mutant cannibals. It’s everything a horror film should be and more. Monsters, heads blowing apart, various weapons of appendage destruction and sweet revenge all wrapped up in a vile and somehow entertaining package. It’s the best mainstream horror film since that other successful remake, 2004’s Dawn of the Dead.
