Alexandre Aja directs this remake of Wes Craven's film The Hills Have Eyes. In this update, a family is taking a cross-country road trip when their trailer breaks down, leaving them stranded in the desert of New Mexico. There, they find themselves under attack by the savage "hill people," who were deformed by radiation during nuclear testing. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Boy, this one's typical Wes Craven (did the original in the 90's and produced this version of it later). It wasn't insanely out of this world gruesome but it was just eerie enough to make me want to sleep with a shotgun. Ruby will win your heart, if you can see past all the gore. Although I had to sleep with the TV on the cartoon network after I watched this I really want to see the 2nd one to find out why the first one ended the way that it did. Not as bad as the Hellraiser series, a little more scary thatn Basketcase. Fun, but not for the whole family. I did end up using humorous MST3K comments to make it through without really getting freaked out.
I really wanted to see a good ol' wholesome horror flick, but this was truly idiotic. The beastial sex was offensive and cheap. It degraded women and that seemed to be the theme of the movie, besides how many people could get killed in one movie. Stupid. Two stars only because most of the humanoids at the end were wiped out.
