Trivia

Director John Carpenter, another horror icon just like Wes Craven, wrote unproduced horror thriller script titled Prey which had plot that was similar to both Wrong Turn (2003) and The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007), which was written by Craven and his son. Carpenter described his Prey script, which he wrote with another writer James Nichols years ago, as mix of Deliverance (1972) and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). The main characters of the script were three young women who go on a trip through the woods in order to get to some mountain but then they are captured by inbred family living in the woods, and just like in this movie the leader (father) of the family wants to use the women as breeders. Eventually the story of the script ended with last surviving woman escaping from the inbred family, the family members hunting after her through the woods and then being killed by her during the hunt and father of the family getting captured and put in jail.

Goofs

In the mine, "Napoleon's" M4 carbine is shown firing in continuous full auto. While the M4A1 does have this function, its issue is limited to select units (e.g., Rangers, Special Forces, Asymmetrical Warfare Group, etc.). The standard issue M4 is limited to a three round burst, just as the M16A2 and A4 are. See more »

Has Its Moments...
17 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hills Have Eyes II is what you would expect it to be and nothing more. Of course it's not going to be an Oscar nominated film, it's just pure entertainment which you can just lose yourself in for 90 minutes.

The plot is basically about a group of National Guard trainees who find themselves battling against the notorious mutated hillbillies on their last day of training in the desert. It's just them fighting back throughout the whole film, which includes a lot of violence (which is basically the whole film) as blood and guts are constantly flying around throughout the whole thing, and also yet another graphic rape scene which is pointlessly thrown in to shock the audience.

I'd give the Hills Have Eyes II 4 out of 10 for pure entertainment, and that only. Although even then I found myself looking at my watch more and more as the film went on, as it began to drag due to the fact it continued to try and shock the audience with graphic gore and the occasional jump scene just to make sure the audience stays awake. The Hills Have Eyes II is just decent entertainment, something to pass time if you're bored, and nothing else.

4/10
