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

This is the kind of movie really stupid characters get picked off and you actually want the bad guys to win.
If you're one of those people who like classic 70's and 80's horror movies than you'll enjoy The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 from 1985, especially if you're a slasher fan.
THE BAD: The cheesyness of the acting, the not-so-great music, no scares, and the gore is not as good as the first film's.
If it's anything like THHE1, it's a over-the-top sick film depicting horrific acts of medieval style physical and mental torture upon unsuspecting victims. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Thomas J. Venditto

|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
