Synopsis

The Carters are an all-American family on their way to California when their car breaks down far from civilization in the southwestern desert. But they are not alone. Watching from the hills is a family of marauding inbred cannibals with an unspeakable taste for human flesh and monstrous brutality.

Our take

Before A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, Master of Horror Wes Craven directed this claustrophobic classic of genre cinema. Pitting a suburban family against bloodthirsty cannibals, The Hills Have Eyes is a shocking and subversive take on American values, shot on location in the Mojave Desert.
