a return to the slashers
9 November 2009 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Not really knowing what to suspect of The Hills Run Red somehow Fangoria took my attention surrounding this flick. It's indeed clear that the torture porn is over, the hype of Saw is declining. For a lot of people it's been there, seen it done. Due the remakes of gems like Friday the 13th and My Bloody Valentine more and more geeks are returning to the slashers. And this one surely is a slasher with an ode to the 70's. A movie called The Hills Run Red was made then and is lost. A lot of people are searching a copy so some one is able to track down a girl who was the daughter of the director. The only minus is the storyline in the beginning. The daughter just comes along with the searchers of the flick. Without thinking just like that, but you will see why she does it. In fact, everything a slasher should have is included. Of course the killer himself, with mask! and a lot of nudity. In the beginning the killings are of camera but how further you go into the movie much red stuff flows and it even gets gory. For me it was never frightening but it sure has his moments. Not the best slasher but a welcome into the rise of the slashers.
