On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
A team of trainees of the National Guard brings supply to the New Mexico Desert for a group of soldiers and scientists that are installing a monitoring system in Sector 16. They do not find anybody in the camp, and they receive a blurred distress signal from the hills. Their sergeant gathers a rescue team, and they are attacked and trapped by deformed cannibals, having to fight to survive. Written by

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 »
Members of the team frequently refer to themselves as members of the "U.S. National Guard." There is no such thing. Each state independently maintains its own National Guard, and it would be addressed as the "New Mexico National Guard." See more »

The premise of this awaited sequel was really good and after the huge success of the remake I expected a lot sincerely.
The sad truth is that this movie is really absurd and inept. The situations are dumb and beyond reason and the acting is truly awful.
This time there aren't likable characters or violins unlike the remake. Also, the gore is not that abundant and when it happens it's truly bad.
The violence is minimal and it's a shame because there are many arguments that make you think that there's room for heavy violence. I mean, there's a SWAT team that is hunting a family of cannibal mutants. You surely expect something different! When I watched it on the movies I wanted my money back.
Anyways this is a clear example of how rushed out movies turn out to be a mess and demonstrate poor quality on all aspects.
A mess that let down the fans of the remake like me. That's why sequels are never welcomed; at least this movie isn't as terrible as the 1985 sequel to the original.
