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 »

Unfortunately Wes Craven was just making some quick cash with this one
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Admittingly Wes Craven claimed he made this sequel to disturbing and scary hit The Hills Have Eyes for some quick cash. This being said, the movie was made very fast and effort was minimal at best or so it seems. A plus is that the same music score director from Friday the 13th is aboard for this sequel. Only drawback is this film compared to Friday the 13th in a lesser sense, as death scenes were comparative and most of them were un-exciting. Parts I found interesting were Ruby's return to the desert as a civilized human now, the number of remaining mine cannibals, and the amount of buildings. This film was far less brutal than the original however many flashbacks and references connected the two well enough to be franchised. I physically burst out laughing to the canine flashback scene, I wont spoil it and tell you what happened but I will remind you its infamous and applaudable. This was a somewhat entertaining 87 minutes of an 80s horror sequel and may be valuable to have viewed for the upcoming The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007). 80s horror sequels comparable to this film include: The Return of the Living Dead Part II, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, Friday the 13th Part II, and The Howling II. I gave this film 6 stars because I am a true fan of Wes Craven and his horror masterpieces even if this one is a pull it out of his behind piece of work, I also enjoyed the remake tremendously and look forward to the forthcoming sequel.
