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 »
Every U.S. soldier is trained, often through repeated "corrective action", never to let his or her weapon out of his or her sight. The characters do this frequently, even before they encounter the mutants. See more »
I myself am not one who cared for the 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes. When it comes to inbred psychos, Wrong Turn has my heart on that one. Anyway, I gave this one a chance for whatever reason, and I found myself enjoying it so much more. It's still not a great movie, but definitely a dang fun one, one more tolerable than the, what I found to be, stale first installment.
The action is more intense, the crazies are crazier and the movie is more engaging altogether for the type of genre it needed to be. I do not know why so many people dog this film. It is certainly better than some of the other horrors that came out in the 00s and I would enjoy to watch this anytime I could; I was very satisfied with it as far as I can remember. Hopefully will be watching it again soon!
