Hills Have Eyes 2

Movie Summary

Director:
Wes Craven
Released:
1985
Rating:
R
Everyone's favorite desert-dwelling mutant cannibals return in this gruesome sequel to the classic drive-in shocker! Years after the original massacre which pitted a suburban family against a band of cave dwellers, traumatized survivors lead a team of dirt bikers back into the wild for a bus expedition. After their vehicle breaks down, the travelers must fend for their lives when the hungry savages (led by spooky Michael Berryman) emerge from the hills in search of dinner! Directed by horror maestro Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street), this brutal chiller features shocking highlights from the original film (including the now legendary canine flashback) and an eerie score by Friday the 13th's Henry Manfredini. Vicious, delirious, and outrageous!

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Slant Magazine

    Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 is a bland, bloodless shambles. Sequel-making of the laziest sort, it's nothing more than a perfunctory, undisguised cash-grab.

    Variety

    It's dull, formula terror pic cliches, with one attractive teenager after another picked off by the surviving cannibals.

    Those looking to Craven for a new spin on an overworked genre are entitled to feel disappointed. [03 Sep 1984, p.B4]
