Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
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

Wes Craven originally looked at Michael J. Bassett the director of DeathWatch (2002) to take over the directing role, But ultimately chose Martin Weisz after scheduling conflicts with Bassett. See more »
(at around 44 mins) When the Colonel asked the soldiers about their CO, the soldiers replied that he was dead, referring to the sergeant. CO is the Commanding Officer of a company, who normally holds the rank of Captain. An E-5 Sergeant cannot command a company. See more »
I really should pay more attention to rumours. I should look at the logical side of things. It's been less than a year since the release of the original and here was the sequel. It didn't even start well. A pre title explanation of Sector 16 and the tragedy that befell the family in the original was unnecessary. The acting was below par, very below par. Who were they? You couldn't even say that they were clichés, they weren't even fleshed out that much.Sorry, I take that back. They did have a stereotypical shouty black sergeant! What was it with the mines? It seemed that Wes Craven realised that the original sequel was terrible but clung on to the idea that abandoned mines are scary. Think again. Every scare ( Well, what scares there were ) were sign posted! I shouldn't even waste time on this. Please don't go and see it, don't buy it. The Hills Have Eyes had the power to disturb, to stay with you for days after watching it, a true classic. Sdaly, this just leaves you out of pocket and bitter.
