    The Hollywood ReporterMichael Rechtshaffen

    This remake of the 1977 Wes Craven cult classic is brutally horrific. And that's a compliment.

    The Hills Have Eyes gets points for gore and general creepiness, and for occasional periods of tension, but it's not scary enough to linger long in the subconscious.

    Where Craven and his director, Alexandre Aja, may have miscalculated is in making the genetically damaged demons, with their flesh-potato foreheads and minimal verbal skills, into monster action figures who take vengeance on the world that created them. They're not scary because they're victims themselves.
