There will be some split audiences on this film. I cannot care either way because it was both disgusting on one end and somewhat brilliant to explore the mind of physchopathic lunatics on the other. Has some similarities to The Descent. I There will be some split audiences on this film.

I did not have any hate or love from this movie but if I had to choose I would take the positive side because I liked the acting. Michael McMillan was superb. Expand

Not as good as the first remake but it was still an enjoyable horror movie. The acting is a little weak and the plot could have been better but overall it wasn't that bad.

Sometimes the acting gets stale, sometimes the film gets boring, and sometimes it does get murky, but it is still effective, and it is by no means a bad entry into the franchise, it certainly tops the original sequel to the original film.

Way more skill than imagination, the plot is retread, a homage to nothing, just a routine exercise to bank in on the money garnered by its predecessor. If you think of this not as a film but as a film school graduation project where you Way more skill than imagination, the plot is retread, a homage to nothing, just a routine exercise to bank in on the money garnered by its predecessor. If you think of this not as a film but as a film school graduation project where you score the director on how well (or not) he executes the fundamentals of creating a basic mood, squeezing beleivable performances out of your principals, and splicing everything together neatly, then he passes. Your modest expectations might even feel a surprise or two. Altogether, forgettable otherwise. Expand

This movie definitely didn't live up to my expectations. The story line had potential, but they blew it.

The rape scene was a good touch and there was some good gore. Expand

It should have seemed clear to Wes Craven that THE HILLS HAVE EYES was a film best left unto itself after the abysmal follow up he aborted on to the screen back in '85, but for some god awful reason, Fox decided it would be a great idea toIt should have seemed clear to Wes Craven that THE HILLS HAVE EYES was a film best left unto itself after the abysmal follow up he aborted on to the screen back in '85, but for some god awful reason, Fox decided it would be a great idea to allow Wes and his son Jonathan to write another sequel. The second attempt on THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2 is perhaps even worse than the first, save for the gory effects. It follows a group of the most untrained, annoying, and childish 'soldiers' the world has ever known as they investigate an abandoned research facility out in the deserts of New Mexico. As they soon find out, the lab was set up to find evidence of the rumored cannibal clan that was supposed to haunt the location, and more murder and mayhem ensues. THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2 is drowned in poorly drawn characters and dreadful dialog that has the audience cheering for each death. Anyone unfortunate enough to sit through the entire thing will at least be privileged to some excellent brain-splattering and gut-munching goodness, but the pain and suffering endured throughout the rest of the plot hardly seems worth it. It is better to forget that this sequel was ever made in order to spare yourself the unnecessary waste of time. -Carl Manes
