Hills Have Eyes, The (1977)

Unread post by Krappy » 11 months ago

The Carters, a family of seven, are headed to California. Before they get there, they have to travel through a Nevada desert to take a look at an old silver mine that’s been left to them as part of an inheritance. Despite a gas station’s attendants warnings to the contrary, the family goes off the beaten path and end up stranded when their car’s axle breaks. The ex-cop father, Big Bob, and his son-in-law, Doug each start walking in opposite directions, hoping to find help. The rest of the family–the mother, the son, the two daughters, and a newborn baby–are left with the family dogs, who begin to act strangely. They bark at something unseen by the others, but it soon becomes clear that the family is being watched by something evil living out in the hills. It turns out that there’s a family of vicious cannibals out there, and, worst-of-all, they’re hungry because no one has passed through in a while.

Wes Craven’s version of Lawrence of Arabia? Ok, maybe not, but this is one of the best latter day uses of the metaphoric desert setting so familiar from 50s sci fi movies. The fan base it engendered resulted in a sequel and a 2006 remake which itself spawned a sequel. Originally rated X but cut to secure an R, there are various versions of the original in circulation. The Anchor Bay dvd release is the most complete.
