Movie Info

As part of a routine mission, a unit of National Guard soldiers stop at a New Mexican outpost only to find the isolated research camp mysteriously deserted. After spotting a distress signal in a distant mountain range, the team decides to commence a search and rescue mission into the hills. Little do they know that these are the very hills that the ill-fated Carter family once visited, and that a tribe of cannibalistic mutants lies in wait. And this time, there is an even larger force of evil at work that is intent on the soldiers' very destruction.

  • In case you miss what's happening, one soldier wails, 'Oh, man, we're gettin' picked off one by one, here.'

    Aug 22, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Written, disappointingly, by Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, this limp sequel to last year's remake of Wes' 1977 original feels like the work of a guy who's spent a few too many days lost in the desert.

  • One man-versus-mutant dust-up ends with a sledgehammer to the groin. Enough said.

    Apr 2, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • The mutants may or may not live to kill again, but at this point, these fussed-over grotesques are better suited to wax museums than movie theaters.

    So fucking bad. One of the dumbest films I've ever seen. I think I lost brain cells watching this.

    Better than the first thanks to some good action scenes but again it's the same old plot, Same old jumps and it's quickly forgotten.

    An unneeded sequel to the remake of the hillbilly horror cult classic. The story does not make much sense and bared little relation to the first film. The acting was terrible and mutants looked even worse.

    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] It's simply impossible to dive in and watch The Hills Have Eyes 2 without knowing exactly what it is that your getting yourself into. I watched it wanting nothing more than a good, solid, dumb, stylish, well-crafted exploitation bloodbath. Plus i'm a huge fan of Wes Craven, and the idea he was writing the sequel to the remake as opposed to sitting on the sidelines and producing made me think that this was going to be even better than I first anticipated. The fact of the matter is, it's not very good. A year before this was released Alexandre Aja's 2006 remake at first impact devided critics and audiences, however I personally had a differing opinion, I found it to be atmospheric and captured the landscapes in the same way Craven's original did, but brought quicker pacing to the table and an exceeding amount of barf-disgusting gore that before the series had lacked. I for one have no problems with cash cow sequels that are terribly unoriginal, as long as they are either equally as good as their predecessors or better. But this remake sequel is predictably dissapointing, the fact it lacks the visual style of the remake, the atmospherics of the original, and also it's character profoundness, pretty much leaves you with nothing other than over the top gore. This isn't Aja's The Hills Have Eyes, or even the original in which Craven took the directing chair, it's just proof of the depressingly low standard that horror movies have tragically succumb to in recent years. It's not terrible by quite some distance, it works hard to make sure that the deaths are as gory, bloody and revolting as inhumanly possible, but the problem is, it isn't scary, and I never winced once.
