By far one of the most amateurish gross-out films ever made. Looking back at the original, you can tell where they went wrong: In the first "The Hills Have Eyes", the mutants were given human characteristics - it was terrifying to realize that humans could be so malicious. They had something good with cannibalistic humans that happened to be mutated, and they ditched it for generic humanoid monsters. Like we've never seen those, you asshats.
At several points in the movie, if you can drown out the actors' "OMG CAN'T BELIEVE IT" screaming, you will assuredly wonder why trained National Guards with military-issue combat fatigues are being slaughtered by mutants. Let me tell you this: Despite people in their unit dying, they don't take out their knives until 20 minutes before the movie ends. Yes, they have knives, but do they use them when they're captured? No. I'm serious, throughout all of the bloody deaths, someone says "bayonet" just before the very end. The only way this could've happened is if they fired all of the retarded people from the crew, and the new crew didn't have enough time to film a less retarded movie.
The only saving grace of this movie is the special effects, but then again, you can easily beat someone's head into a bloody stump in reality and have it be more realistic. And after watching this movie, the latter method is preferable.
