Editorial Reviews

Terror hits new heights in this "brilliant, vicious little piece of work" (twitchfilm.net) set in a remote mountain wilderness. After a man traveling alone has a steamy encounter with a beautiful stranger, the pair join up and take a detour through the hills. But they are suddenly forced to abandon their cars when an unseen sniper puts them in his crossfire. Without understanding why they are being targeted, the strangers must survive their ruthless pursuers and their harsh surroundings. King of the Hill is a frighteningly realistic thriller that "builds steadily towards a crackerjack finale" (Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter).

Format:DVD
Many movies have told the story of the mysterious unknown hunter tracking human prey. Even though you've seen the premise before, you'll find yourself holding your breath as you watch this film.

Quim (Leonardo Sbaraglia) is making a road trip to see his ex-girlfriend and maybe patch things up between them. He stops for gas and has an encounter with Bea (María Valverde). He realizes too late that Bea has stolen his wallet. So, when he sees her car ahead in the distance he decides to follow her.

This is a particularly deserted stretch of road that winds through the forests and mountains of rural Spain. Both Quim and Bea are stranded when their cars are disabled by gunshots. Together they flee into the forest to escape their relentless pursuers.

There are some surprising twists and turns in the plot. To say more would give away too much.

"King of the Hill" is very well made. The cinematography is stunning. Sbaraglia and Valverde took home the Festival Trophy for Best Actor and Actress at the 2008 Screamfest in LA for their performances. Director Gonzalo López-Gallego won the Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film in Silver at the 2008 Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival.

The DVD has audio in either Spanish or English; subtitles are available in Spanish and English. There is also captioning in English for the hearing impaired. Do yourself a favor and skip the dubbed version. The original Spanish version is far, far superior. You'll catch a lot more emotion with the original language track, even if you're using subtitles.

Parents should be aware that, although the DVD is unrated, the theatrical release had a well deserved "R" rating for sex and violence. The movie is disturbing. There are no noble or heroic characters here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must see thriller!! June 24, 2010
Format:DVD
From the start this film takes you as a passenger and puts you into the mindset of the lead cast! You are as lost as this guy. A sniper takes out his tire and then he is hunted and stalked! Very original and very realistic as this is something that could happen to anyone. Definitely worth the money! Infact, i'm going to rewatch it today. With all the "thrillers" out there such as Sorority Row (LOL) this stands above the rest. Chilling ending.
