The remake of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes. What makes this one special is the fact that Craven spearheaded the remake himself and has had his hands in the project from start to finish. He also smartlty enlisted a great director, Alexandre Aja, who recently kicked major horror ass with the film Haute Tension.
Quote: A suburban American family is being stalked by a group of psychotic people who live in the desert, far away from civilization.
The most recent potential victims consist of a middle-aged detective, his wife, their teenage son, two daughters, the older daughter’s husband, and their infant child. As they travel down the dirt road, they hit a string of spikes that blow out their tires and make them crash their vehicle. Of course now they’re way out of range to get any cell phone reception. The father, played by Ted “Buffalo Bill” Levine, decides to leave the family and walk back to the service station while his son-in-law (Stanford) heads off in the opposite direction to see what lies ahead. This leaves the women and teenage boy alone to fend for themselves. Things donâ€™t go well for the Carter family.
I watched that movie in the cinema yesterday because some of my friends recommended it. Well, it’s really pretty violent, but without any kind of sense – in my opinion. Additionally the music partially just doesn’t fit. I’m not a big fan of the Horror Genre although I would say that Saw is a great movie. But this one here is only interesting for real Horror freaks who like plenty of violence. Especially the Rape scenes were pretty disgusting.
