From the mind of Wes Craven, The Hills Have Eyes stands alongside the likes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead as one of the defining moments in American indie horror. Taking a detour whilst en route to L.A., the Carter family (featuring Dee Wallace of E.T. and The Howling) is in deep shit when their camper van breaks down in the middle of the desert -- and they find themselves at the mercy of monstrous cannibals lurking in the hills. With their lives under threat, the Carters are forced to fight back by any means necessary. Horror master Craven achieved critical and commercial success with the likes of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream – but for many genre fans, the director’s seminal ‘77 effort remains his masterpiece.
