Craven was looking to simply scare some folks with blunt violence and a lecture on the primal nature of man. Aja's effort is an absolute declaration of war.

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.
August 30, 2009
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

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

... a scary, if none-too-original, horror movie. (Unrated)
July 9, 2007
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.
February 6, 2007
The film is intelligent and aware, if utterly gross, and on a technical level it's first-rate.

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

A good subtext can make a horror movie good

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.

Everything great horror used to be: Disturbing, outrageous, subtextual, and (don't run from it) morally aware.

The Hills Have Eyes is scary, something that a lot of today's horror films aren't as they compete in the game of one-upmanship in quantity and quality of gore.

March 13, 2006
After being led into the sandy middle of nowhere by an arrogant but ill-prepared conservative, a Democrat pushed to the edge savagely skewers a desert terrorist during a skirmish in a village inhabited by the victims of an American military operation.

A slick updated nasty version of Wes Craven's grisly pop-cult grade-B horror flick of 1977.

There is no winning in this desert, only stranding.
