Trivia

The Hills Have Eyes II was accidentally shown in a theater session of The Last Mimzy (2007) in Holtsville, Long Island back in April 2007. The audience members were mostly made up of young children and their parents having to watch the graphic birth scene of the mutant baby at the start of the film. The theater employees were unaware of their mistake until they saw people running out of the theater room crying and screaming. The theater apologized and offered movie vouchers and free counseling services to all of the audience members of the misplaced film. See more »

More entertaining (and delightfully ickier!) than the 2006 remake.
13 September 2007 | by (The land of the Bunyips) – See all my reviews

Even though it was generally well-received by genre fans, I found the remake of classic "The Hills Have Eyes" to be a typical modern remake. The casting was questionable and the overused shaky-cam was nausea-inducing. French director Alejandra Aja bypassed the original's subtle commentary on the American family post-Vietnam for some half-assed shock scenes that he claimed better fit the contemporary American situation. Huh? I also found the storyline to be much too close to it's predecessor.

Well, the sequel is a surprising improvement (and significantly better than the original's sequel from '85, too.) The storyline is different, the shaky-cam is only used a couple times (and less...shaky), and the filmmakers were wise enough to ditch the half-baked social commentary for a straight-up horror gorefest. And it's a lot of nasty fun! There's lots of very sick ideas here that most horror fans can probably appreciate. The acting is average, the characters are pretty much indistinguishable, and it's rather formulaic, but if you can get past all of that, then this one is good times.
