The Hills Have Eyes
Also play the great 3D game here
It's a remake of a classic Wes Craven (Nigtmare on Elm St) film by the same name.
I'm usually pretty bad in horror films as I'm really squeamish but now I think it's all in my head, as I really enjoyed The Hills have Eyes and didn't think it was that gory at all. Rob (mr Horror himself), Brad, Christian and the others through it was very gory and felt a little disturbed. I did jump about 10 times and felt foolish for falling for all the old tricks (peopel jumping at windows etc etc) but the audio was cranked in the screening room so everything had huge impact.
I guess to me someone getting a pick axe to the head is very comical rather than disturbing. Someone getting their lips scissored off to me is disturbing.
I haven’t seen the original but I don’t think this matters much.
The plot is about a bunch of mutant miners who control an area of the Arizona dessert and a family who get stuck in their territory. There’s a nice solid story behind the film and it looks amazing.
The girl from LOST (the one who had the baby) is in it and a mutant that looks like a thin Gary Busey. There’s also a dude who looks like Rubber Johnny with a giant piñata head.
It’s worth seeing even and there is a great scene with a freezer that really freaked me out.
The Truffle rating of 8/10 as thats an enjoyable horror film.
