It's just nasty.
March 10, 2006
... Aja and his gorehound ilk are making movies that simply wallow in state-of-the-art displays of torture, sadism and sexual humiliation.
March 10, 2006
... a brilliantly reimagined version of Wes Craven's 1977 micro-budget horror classic ...
March 10, 2006
... a blast.
March 10, 2006
These Hills are more to be endured than enjoyed.
March 10, 2006
When its makers, director Alexandre Aja and his co-writer Gregory Levasseur, apply the fresh gloss to the old grit, they remember to apply the thinnest layer possible without skimping on the roughhouse humor.

The Hills Have Eyes is the latest revision to reach theaters, and it's one of the ugliest.
March 10, 2006
It's pretty dull to watch people killing each other for an hour and a half, no matter how bloody the pickax work gets.
March 10, 2006
New horror films, like Aja's, simply shock us with the blunt imagery of heads being axed or blown up, and of limbs being chopped or ripped off.
March 10, 2006
Hills' new mix of old elements somehow feels fresh.
March 10, 2006
This is not a remake or reinterpretation of Craven's film so much as a recapitulation of ideas from that film and other movies.
March 10, 2006
Filled with gristle, gore and mutant mayhem, The Hills Have Eyes is a blood feast for horror fans hungering for something more than the by-rote splatter platters that lately have been filling movie theaters.
March 10, 2006
Hills is the unadulterated stuff, no cut, no chaser.
March 10, 2006
This vivid but brutal remake of Wes Craven's 1977 cult favorite The Hills Have Eyes made me a little sick with its gore and extreme violence.
March 10, 2006
Consider it as one of the first decent 'Why do they hate us' horror flicks.
March 10, 2006
Like the Chainsaw rehash, Eyes borrows its title and narrative from a memorably grungy '70s artifact and then proceeds to hammer each new atrocity into your skull with a quarter of the skill and 10 times the blatancy of the original.
March 10, 2006
From complete dismemberment to extreme shotgun violence, Aja & Co. not only pull out the stops on this one, they decimate them.
March 10, 2006
The film has an unpredictable quality that keeps viewers unnerved.
March 9, 2006
There is a strange lack of tension and no real jolts of fear in this remake of the 1977 Wes Craven film.
March 9, 2006
For me, life is too short for a movie that makes death inexorably long. I would say that it is unendurable. I endured it so you don't have to.
