*1/2 out of ****     It would seem that Alexandre Aja- along with just about anyone else who dares make a horror film in today's world- has a delusion that horror is measured through gore; and entertainment is measured through how sick you get. Horror isn't about sickening violence and consistent gore; it's about art in the form of fright. The remake of "The Hills Have Eyes", which is directed by Aja, is a horror film made to provoke the audience through violence. There's something …

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
This is what we loved 'The Hills Have Eyes' for back in the 70's, right? Stupid people doing stupid things, axes getting buried in skulls, and deformities. That's what horror movies are all about, right?     Director Alexandre Aja (High Tension) does incredible justice to this remake of a very fine original Wes Craven flick. Remaining true to the original, Aja nonetheless brings in new FX for the radiation freaks and also brings fresh performances, though I deeply miss Michael …

I don't claim to be an expert about producers, directors, movies, and which remake is better than what remake. I just know I like horror--the new, more realistic kind AND the old cult classic kind--with all the accompanying gore common to this genre.    This movie has enough gore to satisfy even the most hard-core horror addict, but if you're at all queasy, this movie is not for you.

If it is graphic violence and gore you want then this will be the equivalent to a Wet Dream for you. I've yet to see Craven's original, so I can't really compare this remake to it. Although, from what I've heard this remake is far better. If I had seen the original, I would probably agree. Alexandre Aja, who brought us a little French film called "High Tension" is at the blood and guts genre again. This time he has more people to slaughter and a great team behind him to bring these horrific mutants …

There have been a ton of horror remakes in the last few years. From "The Fog" to "House of Wax" to "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," it appears that Hollywood has run dry on original ideas. One of the latest entries into the world of horror revisited is "The Hills Have Eyes." This is one of the better remakes of recent years, but it lacks something that the original had: Cheese. With a bigger budget and relatively established actors, this remake just doesn't quite add up to the original.     You're …
