    If there was an Oscar for best horror movie prologues, I'd nominate Alexandra Aja for his fantastic opening sequence to his remake of Wes Craven's classic The Hills Have Eyes. Starting with a brutal sequence that looks like it was set on Mars, we immediately know these mutants are not fucking around. We then get a captivating AND disturbing montage of historical nuclear blast footage interspersed with flashes of pictures of real deformed babies (apparently from Agent Orange, not radiation). The setting should be considered an actual character in this movie as well. While supposedly set in New Mexico, they actually filmed the movie in the Mars-like Ouarzazate area in Morocco. I've seen some of the desert in Nevada and it is definitely earthbound and more ugly. I think the MPAA got lazy (thankfully) in the first decade of 2000 as this was just one of a slew of graphically brutal movies introduced during this period that included other remakes (TCM 2003) and the torture porn genre (Hostel, French extreme horror Martyrs, Inside, Frontiers) that probably traumatized an entire tween/teen generation. A great cast and score really elevates what could've just been a run-of-the-mill remake.

    Just shows how much farther horror films have come recently. This film was considered decent at the time of its release, and though it has an interesting setup, it's badly flawed.

    It started off like it was going to surprise us but a few poor jumps later it turns into a gory action film that was just weird and never offers anything new or memorable.

    One of the best horror remakes to come out in this most recent trend. Rather than ignoring its source material, or taking the other extreme of drearily rehashing it scene for scene, Aja and Levasseur's The Hills Have Eyes simply expands and improves upon the original.
