Sick gorefestBy a customer from West Mids , 12 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I just saw this in the cinema, and I am disturbed by the efforts directors will go to shock people. This is a very sick movie, and I am not shocked easily.
Horror films are not scary anymore... they have become gory, and violent to an extent that the next film has to be even worse than the last.
Whatever happened to films like The Shining, or Carrie. Sure, they had violent and gory moments but they also played on your mind and made you think.
Feeling sick and shaking your head in total disbelief is not entertainment.

Disturbing beyond beliefBy a customer , 06 Aug 2013Can't believe how bad this film was. Yes we have all come to expect blood and gore and violence in horror films but this is disgusting. Seriously what has the world come to if anyone finds that film worth watching. Over graphic and visual rape scenes should most definitely not be allowed. We ended up turning it off is disgust. Totally disturbing. I would only ever mention this film in conversation when telling someone not to watch it.
All Round Gory and Good..By AGFrenchy (1 review) , 06 May 2013Does exactly what it says on the tin. A very good horror/gore movie. Storyline's good, acting's good and effects are good. A good all round watch..
Pretty good remake!By CHRISTOBEN (131 reviews) from Loughborough , 24 Mar 2013I thought this was a pretty good remake - certainly by today's standards! It sticks pretty much to the plot of the original, but adds a new dimension of nastiness and gore that works most of the time - great make-up and special effects! How people can complain about horror films being horrific and nasty is a little beyond me - go for a rom/com next time!
Bit of a let down and workman-like to be honest.By ghostsmut (20 reviews) from Edinburgh , 05 Dec 2012I like Alexandre Aja films and his remake of The Hills Have Eyes does what it needs to but with little else. There are some cheesy speeded up zooms that sometimes detract from the impact of some shots but otherwise it is an effective horror thriller. Again, like the Last House remake I'm not sure what more this gives us that the original didn't. The film follows the original exactly except there is a much longer and more effective 3rd act involving man vs mutants. Oh and the mutants look much better but are so nasty you can't feel anything but horror for them. Aja hammers home his point about nuclear testing being bad but it feels a little separate from the main plot here. You just can't feel any sympathy for the mutants - which even the original managed to muster - and in the end all of them die. Bit of a let down and workman-like to be honest. 4/10
the hills do indeed have eyesBy Jontj (12 reviews) , 05 Sep 2012Ok so it wont win any oscars...but thats ok. Typical hillbilly gone crazy movie thats been done so many times before but thats ok because its actually very good. Yes its gory and a little disturbing at times but thats what makes it! Thats the point of this movie and it does it very well. Worth a watch
