There is nothing more innocent and heartwarming than a family taking a trip across the country. In the case of retired cop Big Bob Carter (Russ Grieve), he's taking his extended family out into the desert in search of a silver mine. His wife Ethel (Virginia Vincent) is along for the ride, as are daughter Brenda (Susan Lanier) and son Bobby (Robert Houston). Also tagging along in a mobile home is Carter's married daughter Lynne (Dee Wallace-Stone), her husband Doug (Martin Speer), and their infant child. Rounding out the list are the two family dogs, one of whom will play an important role in the nightmare to come.Read more ›
Young kids have no clue what a good horror movie is all about and that's why remakes actually make money(actually most of them lose money) I've said this before and I'll say it again, anyone that knows anything about horror movies realizes there is much more to it than pretty people on screen, loud bangs and CG effects.
Craven's story about a family on there way to California stop off in the middle of the desert looking for silver. When their Vehicle breaks down they are in for the fight of their lives. A cannibal family living in the hills see a means to survive and plan on feasting on the "fresh meat".
So the lighting isn't great, so the effects aren't as good SO WHAT!!!!!!!!! I'd love to see 'any' director take Craven's budget for this film or Tobe Hooper's budget from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and make half of a movie today. Directors today can't even think of an original story.
Real fans of the genre will appreciate the originals, the classics such as "Halloween", "Black Christmas", "The Fog", "The Exorcist", "The Evil Dead" etc. People who still need to learn about the genre will prefer the remake fakes.
"The Hills Have Eyes" (1977) one of the best movies of the horror genre hands down!
Edit: I went and read some on this and i guess this is about the best they will do for it. So i guess. Either way a soft and fuzzy picture on your 1080p HD TV, cleaned yes, but a soft picture.
Image entertainment have taken over the blu-ray rights for this film from Anchor bay
Image ent' have done a Good Job giving this blu-ray a new HD transfer, but not an excellent Job
the Picture quality is slightly better than the Anchor bay release
infact the 1:85:1 transfer is from the Anchor bay release just slightly more cleaned up in terms of picture quality
which does look only slightly better than the Anchor bay release only
which means there still little bit of Grain & Dirt in the quality
but i guess Image entertainment did the best they could for a film like this
the sound quality is the same treatment from the old Anchor bay release
but has been boosted up to 6.Read more ›

A horror classic directed by the master himself Wes Craven. If you liked his later stuff like Scream you need to check out how he got started.Published 7 days ago by Amazon Customer

Package arrived quick and in great shape. This is a classic horror film, not to be matched by today's standards. Good buy.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
I rarely rate classic horror below the remakes, but in this case I'll have to. All this movie had going for it was a few scary scenes. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Alejandro Rivera Ramos
