Trivia

Wes Craven thought John Bloom's voice wasn't strong enough for his role as The Reaper, so he had Nicholas Worth loop all of Bloom's lines in post-production. See more »

Goofs

Pluto is supposed to be holding on to the rope that is dragging behind The Reaper's bike. But, at one point, both of his hands are off the rope, indicating that it's attached to his body and dragging him along. See more »

"...the hills still have eyes."
15 September 2003 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

The Hills Have Eyes Part II is Wes Craven's less than great follow-up to the brutal original. The first film is damn near terrifying in parts. This one is slightly goofy and unbelievable. The flashbacks are my main problem with the film. Everyone has flashbacks. Every single character from the original has flashbacks, the freakin' dog even has flashbacks. If you're watching The Hills Have Eyes Part II, you almost have to be a fan. I think we're all familiar with the first one. If you're not, then you shouldn't be viewing it. Any reality or spontaneity is also gone. You know who is going to die right away. The cast is decent though. Michael Berryman, Robert Houston, and Janus Blythe all return. Kevin Blair from Friday the 13th Part 7 and Peter Frechette from The Kindred play moto-cros bikers while Nicholas Worth plays the voice of the Reaper. And can anyone tell me where the Reaper was hiding in the first film? If you didn't enjoy the first Hills Have Eyes, you aint gonna like this one.

Note for genre buffs: Kane Hodder is listed as a stuntman.
