Though it was released after A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 was shot before A Nightmare on Elm Street went into production. Writer-director Wes Craven has claimed that only about two thirds of the movie was shot before the studio halted production due to budget concerns. When A Nightmare on Elm Street became a box office success, the studio convinced Craven to finish Hills Have Eyes Part 2 using only the footage that had already been shot. Since there was not enough for a feature length film, footage from the first Hills Have Eyes was edited in to pad out the running time. Wes Craven has since disowned the movie. See more »

I thought it was more entertaining than the original
This movie I thought was more entertaining than the original. It just has more places to go than the first one. The characters are better and funny also. This is one of Wes Craven's most underrated movies. I give The Hills Have Eyes Part II *** out of ****
