THE LUCKY ONES DIED FIRST…
Horror master Wes Craven achieved critical and commercial success with the likes of Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street – but for many genre fans, the director’s seminal 1977 effort The Hills Have Eyes remains his masterpiece.
Taking a detour whilst on route to Calafornia, the Carter family run into trouble when their campervan breaks down in the middle of the desert. Stranded, the family find themselves at the mercy of a group of monstrous cannibals lurking in the surrounding hills. With their lives under threat, the Carters are forced to fight back by any means necessary.
Following on from his notorious 1972 As gruelling a viewing experience today as it was upon initial release, The Hills Have Eyes stands alongside the likes of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead as one of the defining moments in American horror cinema.
"Arrow have again gone 'to the max' with their production giving us the definitive package for Wes Craven's, The Hills Have Eyes... Our highest recommendation for fans of the film!."
"A stone-cold classic, finally given the home video treatment it so richly deserves."
-Sex Gore Mutants
"The image quality is such a tremendous improvement in every possible way it's astonishing"
"remains an integral piece of the American horror movie canon and is, in some ways, still one of director Wes Craven’s best and most thematically sound movies."
"For those appreciative of the seedier side of Wes Craven and 1970s horror classics, The Hills Have Eyes is required viewing—and this is the definitive edition with which to experience it."
"damn near perfect"
