A group of bikers traveling through a remote desert encounter some flesh eating crazies, and must fight for their lives!
While that description may sound cool or appealing, it's quite the opposite actually. The first question I ask myself, is why go if you are aware of what lies ahead? One of the characters is Lucy from the first film. She tags along, and eventually everyone realizes who she is. She knew all about it, so why risk everyone's life by going back? I really don't know. Sadly, that's only one of many flaws to be had in this film.
The plot is as straightforward as you can get, with a group of friends getting stranded in a remote desert, only to realize their lives are at stake due to deformed cannibals. Nothing special. And nothing worth re- watching. The hill dwellers are the same from the original version as well, so it was just same-old. Maybe adding a couple more villains would have helped? I think so. You have Pluto (Berryman), and his hairy friend the reaper. I mean, eight bikers or so can't take two idiots living in the hills? Just ridiculous. They were all pretty tough at that.
To be honest, I really enjoyed Wes Craven's first Hills Have Eyes film, and thought Michael Berryman did pretty fantastic as well. That at least packed some suspense, and had likeable characters. To think Craven took part in this picture is beyond me; very pitiful. But I suppose every director has there down moment right?
When I think of cheesy horror flicks, The Hills Have Eyes Part II is definitely one of the worst. It brings visibly nothing to the table, with literally boring characters, a predictable story, some of the worst dialogue I have ever seen, and absolutely no suspense to be had. I can't even look at this movie as a sit back, relax and enjoy it for what it is type flick. It's that bad.
Don't watch this if you're a Hills Have Eyes Fan. It just might ruin your day.
