Overview

A naïve group of National Guard trainees embark on a routine training mission in the New Mexico desert, only to find themselves face to face with a murderous band of cannibalistic mutants in prolific music video director Martin Weisz's sequel to the successful 2006 remake. An isolated desert research camp has been mysteriously abandoned, and now it's up to an elite unit of soldiers to uncover the truth about the scientists who vanished without a trace. Their attention soon diverted by a distress signal emitting from a distant mountain range, the squadron quickly regroups and sets out to investigate. Unbeknownst to the soldiers, however, is the fact that these are the very same hills where the Carter family recently fell prey to a flesh-eating pack of hideously deformed mutants. As the ranks of the cavalry unit steadily begin to dwindle, it soon becomes obvious that their guns provide little defense from an evil driven by hunger to commit the ultimate crime against humanity. Original Hills Have Eyes and Hills Have Eyes, Part 2 writer/director Wes Craven teams with son Jonathan to script this grim and unforgiving tale of man versus mutant.

    Had Fun, but Not as Good as the First

    The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)
    Review by A.P. Fuchs

    4 out of 5


    A group of rookie soldiers head out to top secret government area, Sector 16, to bring supplies to a bunch of scientists who are out in the rocky desert conducting tests. When the soldiers arrive at the camp, the scientists are missing. Soon, they discover that the surrounding hills are infested with mutant cannibal killers bent on slaughtering anyone that comes their way.

    Simple story, but enough of a premise for me to enjoy this The Hills Have Eyes sequel. Sure, it wasn't as good as the first one, but we all knew the sequel was coming given this flick's predecessor's ending.

    While the mutants in the first one were just plain disturbing to look at, in this one they were downright ugly. Warts, misshaped body parts, skewed eyes, drool, bad teeth--they really upped the gross factor with the makeup and prosthetics this time.

    The army-based cast of characters are stereotypical, sure, but in these types of movies--I'd almost say a "post-apocalyptic" one albeit a localized apocalypse--army characters fill a need that regular Joe Blows don't. After all, it's always the army that's supposed to come to the frontlines in extreme circumstances. However--and granted I'm not a military man myself--I did find the army folks lacking in the areas of intelligence and overall combat skill. Yes, they weren't seasoned vets, but at the same time, you'd think they'd be better trained to handle formidable foes hand-to-hand if needed be.

    The dark tunnels and caverns in this flick added a level of spookiness that regular rooms or basements can't. No one likes being trapped in the dark even if it's the dark of your own living room. Get trapped in a foreign location not made of wood and drywall and you got a rough terrain for anyone to endure.

    Will they make a third one? I don't know as it's been awhile since this installment, however this fan of the franchise wouldn't mind another sequel, though I'd be more thrilled if it was in the vein of the first rather than the second.

    All in all, still an enjoyable late night flick, especially if you're into mutant terror.

    The Hills Have Eyes 2

    This was just pathetic and downright stupid. Just stick with the first. Honestly the 1st one was surprisengly better but hard to watch yet you can't help but watch it at the same time. Oh and there's this other scene that is just downright sick. Don't bother watching this seriously. Hostel and this are just disgusting even for horror standards, especially the other SAW movies but I like the 1st one only.

    A rather poor attempt

    Being the sequal to the last (remake) I was pretty disappointed with how little they did to give this one a storyline. While the movie has plenty of gore and shock factor, it doesn't stand up to the previous. Once again there is a totally unneeded rape scene which, like the last movie, does little for the story other then make the viewer some what disgusted (not in a good way) as I see it. It appears that there is the possiblity of a 3rd installment and one can hope they can bring it up a notch and leave rape out of the next one if they do continue.
