Storyline

While celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, a couple are caravanning through the desert with their 3 children, son in law and their baby granddaughter. While the rest of the family agrees there are plenty of better and more appropriate things to do to celebrate an anniversary, they make do with what they have, but things take a turn after a sketchy gas station attendant informs them about a "short cut" that will take them in between a series of hills in the desert. It doesn't take too long before they realise they're not alone and the hills indeed do have eyes. Written by ahmetkozan

Goofs

(at around 23 mins) When the family is setting up the camper after they crash, the shadow on the wall of the camper from the shade cloth is not matched with the time. It starts with the sun very high in the sky and then it shows the shadow like the sun is very low, all within a few minutes of conversation. See more »

A gory killing horror movie about the classic Wes Craven story
9 May 2007 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The movie begins with a prologue saying: Between 1945 and 1962 the United States conducted 33 atmospheric nuclear tests.Today the government still denies the genetic effects caused by the radioactive fallout.This gore-feast deals about a family in holidays traveling in a caravan.The family is formed by father(Ted Levine),mother(Kathleen Quinlan), daughter(Vanessa Shaw) with her husband(Aaron Stamford)and their baby, and two teens(Dan Byrd,Emilie De Davin). A gas Station attendant(Tom Bower) lead them for driving along a wrong turn throughout the New Mexico desert.But their journey becomes a nightmare for the familiar group pushed by eerie maniacs.Then a cruel band of inbred mutants cannibals attack them.They are taken in the nightmare clutches of homicidal inhabitants desert.A mysterious unseen creatures drag them away and torture,kill and they transform into flesh eating.These brutal people with rare names,Lizard(Robert Joy),Papa Jupiter(Billy Drago) and Big Brain(Desmond Askew)murder and dismember passing travelers.The maniacal assassins slaughter victims and annihilate the family members.

The film packs,tension,suspense,chills,terror,sadism and lot of blood and gore -including impalement,attempted rage,shot in the face,sliced,stabbing- courtesy of Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger.They create a creepy make-up of horrible mutants cannibals.The murders are gruesomely executed and equally as graphic as the original movie.The film is constituted by a well done terror set pieces with creepy and spooky atmosphere.The mutants appearance delivers the goods with hair raising chills and full scares.The story is borrowing from the classic¨Texas chainsaw massacre¨until recent movies like ¨Wrong turn¨and ¨House of 1000 corpses¨and of course¨Wes Craven's The hills have eyes¨. The motion picture is skillfully directed by Alexandre Aja.In spite of seeing a new version,it's certainly one of the most unsettling remakes of the last years. It's recently exhibited the second part directed by Martin Weisz.The film isn't apt for little boys,neither squeamish.
