I’ll be honest. When I went into the video store last night to look for something, I was not looking for a horror movie. I was looking for Sylvia, but I picked this up as a second pick, although I wanted to see this at the movies as it struck me as similar to Saw or Hostel. But aside from the gore, it doesn’t really match up.
Some would say both Saw and Hostel didn’t have much a story, but I think they did and it was done pretty well. The Hills Have Eyes was not done well. The imagery and atmosphere of the movie was good, and there were disturbing and freaking scenes, but as a whole, this movie was a disappointment. It’s just another cliché take on the ‘stick a group in some fucked situation and watch them hack or get hacked’ type movie.
I think I’d rather go see some of the movies Fred recommended.
