A group of young horror fans go searching for a film that mysteriously vanished years ago but instead find that the demented killer from the movie is real, and he’s thrilled to meet fans who will die gruesomely for his art.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A bloody mess of a slasher that, underneath all its deranged shell, had potential (starting with the reveals at the end and ending with Babyface) to be greater and improvement. A blending of many horror elements that ends up being predictable and foolish.
From a strict screenwriting standpoint, I found "The Hills Run Red" to be a very smart, multi-layered meta-horror flick that sharply blurs the line between what we assume is a journey based on fiction for the lead characters, learning soon that the "movie within the movie" is what we're actually watching unfold onscreen. It may take a watch or two to notice the onion-esque peeling of these layers, but it's worth it.
