I thought I’d rent the Wes Craven classic The Hills Have Eyes on the weekend release of it’s remake. And with taglines like:
The lucky ones died first.
They burned the father, killed the mother and raped the sister!
I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. I still found the movie pretty bland. I don’t get into the ‘picked off one-by-one in the desert’ movies. They seem about as boring as a love story – a self-contained world where nobody affects anything outside. One good suspense scene and a repeating ‘baby in peril’ motif but not as harrowing as I would have liked. Fast forwarded through much of the second half because it lagged.
