The Hills Have Eyes

Director: Wes Craven
Year Released: 1977
Rating: 1.0

A pack of chipper Middle Americans and their offspring - people who drive campers and are brimming with the need for excitement! - have a car accident and are hunted down by crazy loons who, just like the dingoes, want to eat their baby. Decent editing and blood effects aside, this is back in Last House on the Left territory, plagued by misanthropy and terrible acting, reveling in bloodlust and not giving anyone a way out ... in other words, it's a generic horror film. Unlike Romero, who makes sure his pictures have sociological slants and deeper meanings to balance out the gore and zombies, Craven's fixation is purely on technique.
