|The loudest screams may be your own when you experience this Unrated Edition of The Hills Have Eyes 2 with gruesome added footage not shown in theaters - plus spine-tingling special features, including graphic featurettes and a killer alternate ending!|
With even more blood, guts and gore than its shocking predecessor, this chilling sequel picks up two years after the ill-fated Carter family was attacked by cannibalistic mutants while crossing a secret military testing zone known only as Sector 16. Now, a group of National Guard trainees on a routine mission in the area find themselves up against the same bloodthirsty freaks. But this time, the mutant patriarch isn't just looking for a quick bite - he needs female breeders to continue his family line!
"...invokes both "Goonies" and last year's instant-classic, chicks-versus-cave-dwelling-vampires flick "The Descent." Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
Editor's NoteAfter a group of hapless National Guard troops fails a training exercise, their commanding officer (Flex Alexander, SNAKES ON A PLANE) orders them to deliver supplies to some scientists in Yuma Flats, New Mexico. The mutants from the first film (the unfortunate victims who live on nuclear testing ground) have returned to terrorize a group of Department of Defense researchers. The unlucky soldiers happen upon the remains of their camp (and its denizens), and the horrors begin. The inbred family of cannibals stalks the soldiers and picks them off, one by one, in gruesome fashion.Alejandre Aja (HIGH TENSION) directed the 2006 remake, but this sequel replaces Aja with Martin Weisz, whose first feature, ROHTENBERG, was banned in his native Germany. Written by genre master Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, THE HILLS HAVE EYES II is a sequel to the remake of Craven's original 1977 film. It's no coincidence that Craven changed this sequel's victims from a band of motorcyclists to a group of unlucky soldiers, giving the film political undertones. For a brief moment, this film addresses the idea that war may be the worst kind of horror, even when it's judged against mutant cannibals.
