A classic

Since it is a huge horror classic and since I have a weak spot dor Wes Craven's work, I really had to watch this one. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good but I can't say I was really blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, basically, it has the qualities and default of many vintage horror flicks. On the bright side, it displayed a really raw feeling and I really enjoyed the mood. On the downsi... read more

When I first watched it, I got scared for the dogs getting killed and turned it off! When I finally grew a pair, I ended up enjoying it and I was sorta wrong about the dogs getting killed (only one died sadly poor thing) and the film was exciting and well acted. This was well done for a film like this and I wish Wes Craven were still here so I can ask, “How did you make a gory masterpiece like t... read more

This is a case where I believe the remake turned out better than the original film. This one isn't bad. It has more directorial flair and better cinematography than Craven's previous effort, The Last House On The Left and there's some tension and suspense.

“This is a case where I believe the remake turned out better than the original film. This one isn't bad. It has more directorial flair and better cinematography than Craven's previous effort, The Last House On The Left and there's some tension and suspense. But, compared to the remake and even on it's own, there's a lot of problems as well. Foremost being, that once revealed, the antagonists are not the least bit frightening. Unlike in the remake, where they were presented as inhuman, hideously deformed monsters, these characters are much more human. They talk and laugh, and come across as nothing more than desert hillbillies with cannibalistic tendencies. This takes a lot of punch out of the second half of the film.

"20.8. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Yhteinen taipaleemme alkoi niin aikaisessa vaiheessa harrastusta, että tuskin osasin vielä tuolloin edes harrastukseksi mieltää. Videosensuurin kumoamisesta oli kolmisen vuotta ja DVD oli formaattina löytänyt kotikaupunkini, jolloin VHS:iä löysi kirppareilta aina tyyliin 50 sentillä. The Hills Have Eyes oli etunenässä, kun Future Film lykkäsi leikkaamatonta kauhua liikenteeseen. En tosin tiedä tämän saksimishistoriasta, ensitarkistuskin on teetetty "

" Often as vile and horrifying as it should be, but I also found it to be a bit too goofy at times. Detracting from the tension that the film kept trying to amplify. Shockingly enough, I prefer the remake. "
