A road trip turns into a horrifying fight for survival in Wes Craven’s THE HILLS HAVE EYES.
Nestled between Wes Craven’s rape-revenge Last House on the Left (1972) and his genre-defining A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) is his violently gritty The Hills Have Eyes…and it’s a doozy. Here Craven takes the idealized American road trip and turns it into a nightmare as the Carter family encounters an attack by a mutated cannibal family who survive by preying on travelers. This film shows that danger can lurk in every corner, even in amongst the great American landscape. Women, children, dogs, cannibals…no one is here is ever safe.
