Great Look at the Craven Classic

Looking Back at 'The Hills Have Eyes' (2003)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent 50-minute documentary about the making of THE HILLS HAVE EYES features Wes Craven, Peter Locke, Dee Wallace, Suze Lanier, Janus Blythe, Robert Houston, Eric Saarinen and Michael Berryman. If you're a fan of the film then you're certainly going to enjoy this documentary, which starts off with Craven talking about what he was doing around this time in his life and how being broke was the main influence to make this movie.

From here we learn about the pre-production including trying to find all the locations to shoot on. There are some pretty funny stories about the cast trying to deal with the heat. From here we learn about the casting and then of course the actual shooting of the movie. Everything tells some extremely good stories and especially Wallace who shares a story of how she finally cracked one day and screamed at the crew. Another great story deals with a rattlesnake that broke free during lunch one day. There's also some talk about its run-in with the MPAA, which hit it with a X-rating, although sadly there's no talk about exactly what was cut. Either way, fans of the film are certainly going to want to watch this film as it's a fun look back at a now classic.
