    Guys,
    Just got finished seeing that and I've gotta say that was the most twisted sidistic movie I have ever seen in all my 25 years.
    I have lost my apetite for the rest of the night and am really sorry I watched it. I just don't see the point in filling your mind with that kind of stuff.

    Unless you are just a disturbing movie kind of guy or gal, there just isn't any reason at all to see this one. I don't see anything beneficial to sitting through 2 hours of The Hills Have Eyes.

    Hey Edberg,
    Isn't the movie set in the deserts of New Mexico >???

    The people that I saw it with tonite had already seen it and are big into horror films. They all agree that this one if the best, or worst (whichever way you want to look at it).

    I saw the hills have eyes last week and would agree that it's the most twisted movie I have ever seen. I have herd that Hostel is pretty rough as well Jassy, but I just don't see how it could be as bad as the hills.

    I heard that is was 'good' (in the horror-movie sense).

    I heard Hostel was terrible. And Wolf Creek could be the worst movie I've ever seen. I'm not a horror fan though.

    Yeah, it's supposedly set in the deserts here. But it was filmed in Morocco. I was shocked to see the similarity in the landscapes between Morocco and New Mexico. And yes there are places like that in NM when you get stranded you are pretty much screwed. But you do see some cars pass by you every now and then.

    Did it have some sort of twist at the end? And did you like "The Village"?

    Hostel wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, still sick stuff. First half was basically a porno the second half was torturing techniques.

    Lady in the Water was like a fairy tale brought to life in the movie, saw it last night with my brother it was weird stuff.
    The director, M. Night Shaymalan played a pretty big role acting in it, which I am not a fan of.

    Despite The Village recieving horrible reviews, I loved that movie. The twist was amazing im my opinion.

    The Hills Have Eyes was a twisted movie..pretty bad for a horror movie.

    Hostel I heard is F***ed up. I saw Wolf Creek. Being Australian it was very dissapointing. The horror/scaryness wasn't there for me.

    horror movie fan

    I havent seen it yet, but i am a fan of horror movies, especially slasher films of the 80s. Im a big fan of the Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Nightmare on Elm Street movies. I have the box sets of the Friday the 13ths and Nightmare on Elm Streets.

    Hostel was some messed up shiznit. That eye scene? Gross. And when he's being dragged to his "room" by the guards and he's seeing all the other people being killed.

    I don't plan on finding out.

    "the hills have eyes" is a lot like "wrong turn". I think "wrong turn" is a bit better.

    Thought Hostel stank a bit. Too much hype given to the movie that it disappointed me. You guys should watch Sympathy For Mister Vengeance and Old Boy.......if you like twisted unpredictable movies. Especially Old Boy which got mixed reviews.....but I try not to listen to reviews anyway.

    I saw 'Hills' in the theatre. The mutant rape of the teenage hottie was predictable; the mutant nursing on the lactating older sister was pure cinematic genious. I heard many people walked out during this scene.

    Hills Have Eyes is such an embarassment to the horror genre. It wasn't a horror movie so much as me laughing as it played out every single "twist" and scenario I had thought it would. It is filled with your typical horror movie archaetypes, doesn't bring anything to the genre, and relies on cheap/cheesy violence to sell itself. Horror movies of old are lowered collectively by this movie.

    Oh, and if you want a really messed up movie that makes sense and is actually scary, check out either Man Bites Dog or My Little Eye. You won't be dissapointed.

    Lots of them left during that scene when I was there; I believe I watched it opening night with a couple of friends. The movie was pretty twisted, but I found there were humorous parts in it - or maybe I'm just twisted.

    And I feel pretty cool; he runs out of shots in the revolver, and I called it as I was counting from earlier.
