The Hills Have Eyes (1977) Review


OK
Wes Craven's early low-budget horror flick follows the now-traditional archetype: Middle America vs. inbred hicks in the middle of nowhere. Released during the original Texas Chain Saw era, The Hills Have Eyes is unfortunately slow going before it gets to the part with the insane cannibals. After that, Craven paints an interesting and uniquely bloody study of how "normal" people will descend to the lowest depths in order to save themselves, but you'll have to suffer through a lot of tedium to get there. I'll take the Chain Saw any day.
