Falls into the trap of delivering its relentless arsenal of painful images with almost sedated enthusiasm. The movie has no venom.

On the strength of their 2003 slasher flick, High Tension, Craven hired director-writer Alexandre Aja and writer Grégory Levasseur, and the result is one of the most exhilarating, intense, and engrossing Hollywood shockers ever made.

Still not a perfect film, but it's still superior to the original.

Of considerably richer interest than the revampings of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Fog, not the least for having American-heartland horrors viewed through foreign glasses

It is an artfully crafted exercise in high-octane style, bolstered by a stronger cast than most horror films could ever hope to assemble, but it's a bitter, sleazy little pill that leaves an ugly aftertaste.

Some say this remake is better than the original, but it ain't so.

It's self-conscious nastiness, once removed from its motivating source.

... a scary, if none-too-original, horror movie. (Unrated)

The resulting bloodbath, both nasty and hilarious, is a master class in the art of the remake, wavering somewhere between respectful reimagining and gleeful pastiche.

Like Craven's original, Aja's version gets the job done - it makes your stomach turn, puts you on edge, and gives you a horror-movie ride.

The film is intelligent and aware, if utterly gross, and on a technical level it's first-rate.

It was going to take a lot to sell me on the remake. It delivered.

These Hills might have eyes, but they could have used some brains, or at least a steadier hand and a less contemptible sensibility to guide the grisly proceedings.

The Hills Have Eyes involves one basic premise: freaks with very rusty weapons eviscerating, disemboweling and decapitating stupid travelers lost somewhere between Point A and B ...

To describe this film as "pornographically violent" is an affront to pornography.

I suppose what the core fans want to know is: is it really horror? The ayes have it...

... Exists only to inflict an unfathomable amount of pain and suffering upon its characters and audience.

Filmmakers] Aja and Levasseur have no doubt created the cannibal holocaust of their dreams. It's certainly as brutal, bloody and ambitiously disgusting as the most demanding fan might wish.
