Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For die-hard horror fans, The Hills Have Eyes 2 is a knock-off remake/sequel that delivers a few queasy thrills. While it represents a minor improvement over the 1985 sequel to Wes Craven's 1977 original (you know, the one with the notorious "canine flashback"), it's yet another cookie-cutter exercise in death by stupidity, focusing its Aliens-in-the-desert plot on a scrappy, ill-tempered unit of National Guard soldiers who've been sent to investigate the first remake's hellish aftermath in the bomb-tested wastelands of Nevada. (Like its far-superior 2006 predecessor, this sequel was shot on location in Morocco.) Unfortunately these bickering recruits are an embarrassment to their inauthentic-looking uniforms, and their reckless inexperience (not to mention a tired, uninspired screenplay by Craven and his son Jonathan) makes them easy targets for the ravenous, irradiated mutants who dwell within a treacherous network of tunnels and caves. As the generically! good-looking cast is reduced to a few terrorized survivors (which somehow doesn't stop costars Jessica Stroup and Daniella Alonso from looking like fashion models), music-video director Martin Weisz switches to auto-pilot in his dubious feature debut, serving up a basically plotless succession of grisly makeup FX by Howard Berger and his crack team of gore-mongers. The gross-out factor is sufficiently amusing (including one soldier pulled through a hole with one leg in the totally wrong direction), but even devoted horror connoisseurs will have to admit this is pretty lame stuff. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

National Guard soldiers stop at a New Mexican outpost only to find the isolated camp mysteriously deserted. Little do they know that these are the very hills that the ill-fated Carter family once visited, and that a tribe of cannibalistic mutants lies in wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars i have no idea what everyone's complaining about January 22, 2008
Format:DVD
If you've seen the original(not the 70's one. different story), you should already know the basic concept. theres a huge plot of desert land that the governemt used as a nuclear weapons testing area. the people living in that area who refused to leave became horribly disfigured from all the radiation. over time the people lost their sanity and became more like animals, killing and eating any normal people that come near their hills.

the disappearances been going on for a while at this point, so theres some scientists investigating the area. when a small national guard squad comes through the area and discovers the corpses, they decide to take action into their own hands. bad idea.

i read some complaints about the whole concept. like, how could some deformed backwoods guys take out a whole squad of armed soldiers? i found the situation relatively believable as things progressed. these hills and mines are their home. these creatures know their environment, and they use it. their stealth and timing pays off, taking out one soldier at a time, never revieling themselves to too large of a group. besides, these soldiers arent even done with training. they were sloppy, and they lacked experience.

a lot of people complain about a lack of suspence, but this movie had more moments that made me jump than the original. there was one really clever kill. i dont want to give anything away, but that guy died very slowly.

the whole breeding concept is really twisted, and the rape scene deffinitely was kind of disturbing, but its not like they gorified the idea. these "people" are monsters. they kill with no remorse. they eat normal humans. this helped communicate their lack of humanity. although it could've been a shorter scene.

overall it felt more like a really twisted, brutal action movie than a horror movie. i really dont understand what everyone's problem is. if you liked the first one, you should like this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars These Hills are flat... March 25, 2007
Format:DVD
A group of National Guard rookies is sent to assist some scientists for an undisclosed project at a remote location in the desert. They soon find themselves stalked by a group of vicious mutants.

Let's make one thing clear, this isn't a good movie, folks. It has none of the gusto, cool cinematography, stylish directing, and well-written screenplay of last year's remake of the original. Where the remake by Alexandre Aja actually surpassed Wes Craven's original, this sequel is totally uninspired. Once again, an interesting premise (albeit overly used in the past; Aliens, Resident Evil, etc) completely wasted on a bad script. The actors weren't very good either, for the most part. Save for three characters, I didn't give a damn about the group of soldiers (they're actually National Guardsmen). The directing was average, no pizzazz, no flashy camera tricks. The movie was predictable and didn't bring anything new to the genre. The suspense element was reduced to nil. The mutants were all huge brutes and pretty much resembled one another as opposed to the different personalities of the ones in the first film.

The only thing this movie had going for it was a handful of clever and inventive kills. The gore was minimal and the violence level was average; nothing we hadn't seen before. Skip it in theatres and wait for the DVD if you're morbidly curious. Go rent (or buy) the first one instead. Horror sequels are almost always bad and the recent ones (Ring 2, Grudge 2, Saw 3, Texas Chainsaw: The Beginning) were all sub par. I'm hoping they won't go for a third Hills movie after this one because it's bound to flat line at the box-office.

I didn't expect much from this movie being a sequal/remake but i was surprised. The movie does fly by and has alot of action and plenty of horror. I think it is an improvement on the 2006 remake although not as gruesome.

Written by both Wes Craven and his son Jonathon Craven i think they are trying to say something about the war in Iraq and possibly being unprepared. Jim Hemphill of reeldotcom makes an interesting point "Their script works on multiple allegorical levels, standing in not only for Iraq (with the mutants representing the insurgents), but Afghanistan. The implication is that, like the Taliban, the mutants are creations of our own government that have now turned against us, and part of the movie's impact grows out of the horror of this circumstance--a horror that goes deeper than expected from a conventional escapist thrill ride". He also points out Cravens Politcal Stands in The Last House on The Left with family values and People Under The Stairs and American's class divisions.

The Director Martin Weisz also has harder material to work with than in other horror stories being in broad daylight most of the time and here unlike the 2006 remake our victims are National Guard troops with automatic weapons instead of an innocent family.

I do have to say i was in an Army National Guard combat unit and women are not allowed in combat units, also I haven't seen many women that look like swimsuit models in the military. The seargant and most of these troops act all hardcore however they all leave their weapons laying around anywhere and that would never happen. I only point these things out as being annoying seeing the movie is taking itself seriously.

All and all like i said plenty of action and scares sprinkled with some political statements makes this an above average horror film especially by today's sequal horror remake standards.

why the take off the slipcover
The slipcover really adds nothing overall...
If you really want to then I suppose you could just go take one from Best Buy or something but I don't see why. It's just filler.

what is so different about the unrated version....
I agree, 9 times out of 10 the re-release of a re-release that was just released 2 months ago that costs $30 but the original release is now down to $10 is never any better than the original release. Who cares what the guy that cleaned the dressing room of the co-co-co-star found in the room... Read More
