The Hills Have Eyes

Directed by Wes Craven. Starring Susan Lanier, Michael Berryman, Robert Houston, Virginia Vincent, Dee Wallace, Martin Speer. (1977, R, 89 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Mon., Jan. 28, 2002

In this early Wes Craven movie, mutant humans creatively slaughter and cannibalize an all-American family camping-out in their RV in the middle of the Nevada test range sites. Inventive story ideas and humorous touches give this horror picture an enduring relevancy and stylistic flourish.
