Hills Have Eyes, The (2006)

2006 / d. Alexandre Aja
This, along with Rob Zombie’s redux of HALLOWEEN, were the two most pleasantly surprising films of the 2000-2009 decade. Director Alexandre Aja stupefied me with his awe inspiring skills on HIGH TENSION, and it’s no wonder he was hand-picked by Wes Craven himself to direct this flick. Gratuitous, gory, suspenseful, and filled with enough updated social commentary to make it relevant for today’s younger audiences, THE HILLS HAVE EYES will provide an ample ninety-minute shockfest you’re not soon to forget!
