The Hills Have Eyes (2006) Review
Written by: zomcom
The Hills have eyes was a surprisingly good remake.The story:During a trip through New Mexico, a family got stuck in the desert. The father and his son-in-law returns to a fuel station where they've passed before, to try to get some help. Meanwhile, the rest of the family stay in the camper, without knowing that they're being besieged by monstrous people, apparently deformed by the effects of radiation pollution, resulting of the nuclear tests made there since 1945.
In fact, the family are in a sort of crater caused by a bomb impact. However, the dog of the family will be the first to bump into with these creatures, whom eat everything in hand, even human meat. These cannibals will start a massacre with some of the family members, assaulting their camper and finally they kidnap a baby, in fact, the son-in-law's daughter. Nevertheles, he'll take the risk of rescue his little daughter, assisted by the other survival dog, crossing a dark tunnel that leads them to a tumbledown town, where this group of deformed creatures live.
I was expecting The Hills have eyes to be another lame slasher remake,but I have to say Aja did it,he is making a huge name for himself.Aja has a twisted mind.The acting was well done,I really enjoyed Arron Standford's performance.The directing was really good,Aja is a great director.The hills have eyes is extremely gory and disturbing and also the mutants are really well done.In the end a good gory remake with a great cast and director.
