Surviving the Hills: Making of 'The Hills Have Eyes' (2006)

*** (out of 4)

Good documentary taking a look at the making of Alexandre Aja's 2006 remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES. A lot of the documentaries that found themselves on DVD releases were usually 10-15 minute promotional pieces where everyone talked about how great the other person was. That really isn't the case here because this documentary clocks in at 50-minutes and really gives you a great idea of what went on behind-the-scenes. We start off learning why the film was being remade and what attracted Aja to do it. From here we learn about deciding on the location and then we get into the actual shoot.

Subjects include the special effects, the use of CGI, the mutant creations and of course we get interviews with the cast and crew on what it was like to make the picture. If you're a fan of the film in question then you're really going to enjoy this because just about all the main people are interviewed. All of the cast members are on hand discussing their parts but we also get the director constantly talking about the production and Gregory Nicotero is on hand talking about the special effects. There's a lot of terrific behind-the-scenes footage and we also get a couple scenes that aren't in the movie.
