works as a taut thriller, but it also leaves plenty of room for political and ideological tunneling, if only for its horrific inversion of American family values

I've never been a Wes Craven fan, yet if there's one picture of his that I would place above all others, it would be The Hills Have Eyes.

In essence, this is a cruel odyssey prizing the survival of the fittest, both family units operating by their own socially dictated codes, reduced to brutality and savagery for survival.

There are still iconic and unforgettable elements to The Hills Have Eyes which allow it to stand the test of time and hold up among horror master Wes Craven's wide body of work

As disgusting as the movie is, the ride is never dull, but there's no need to take on the film to begin with unless there's something a little off inside your head.

Craven paints an interesting and uniquely bloody study of how 'normal' people will descend to the lowest depths in order to save themselves, but you'll have to suffer through a lot of tedium to get there.

As a mirror to the low-fi, sci-fi hero journey of Star Wars, however, The Hills Have Eyes is the far less damaging to its respective genre.

Craven's latent sick streak gets a major workout here, and the rudest shocks seem to center around the "good" family's parental figures.

...a sporadically effective Texas Chain Saw Massacre rip-off.
