Critic Reviews for The Hills Run Red

All Critics (7)

It's the blood, gore and nudity that captures the eye of the casual fan.

June 26, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

a horror film about horror films, replete with not only crowd-pleasing shock and gore but also funny deconstructions of the fixed clichés of slash and dash... but there is little here we have not seen before, ironic self-referentiality and all.

Chills, thrills, and gory, gory kills...

The Hills Run Red is an example of the kind of horror movie that gets a pass from forgiving genre fans, but its clumsy, obvious execution will otherwise not likely entertain (much less scare) anyone else.

This is disturbing, merciless horror ... the way it should be. See it now.

Audience Reviews for The Hills Run Red

A sloppy, but fun horror film. It's pretty cheesy and the acting is not so great, but Sophie Monk keeps the film smoking hot and the violence is pumped up to a juicy nice level. Good story and great cinematography help us forget about the terrible acting and poor script (dialogue) - to an extent. Graphic violence, T&A, sadism and torture make this an above average slasher flick about horrors of a mysterious snuff film. "Rated R for strong bloody horror violence and torture, grisly images, sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use." ...Good times! Photobucket

An above average straight to DVD slasher. Surprised could have done ok at the cinema. A creepy looking killer, good location, quite a few familiar faces in the cast including William Sadler! Quite gory in places, the story is original if very far fetched. A mix of 8mm, Scream and Wrong turn. Better than most recent slasher films I've seen.

The Hills Run Red is one of the most brutal, violent and disturbing horror films of recent memory. The story is original and terrifying. The acting is decent. The violent is bloody as hell, and will satisfy any gore hounds. This film is the work of a director who knows what makes horror great. This film has every element from an awesome horror flick. Terrific pacing and chills arises as the killer stalks his victims as they search for a lost slasher film called The Hills Run Red. This film takes no prisoners its executed with confidence and doesn't let the viewer catch a breath. The film attacks you on all fronts, and when you watch it, you experience genuine terror as this is one of the most original horror films since The Devil's Rejects. A tense horrifying ride, The Hills Run Red is an awesome achievement in the horror genre.
