The Hills Have Eyes

I actually went out on a date w/ Mrs Numb on Saturday and we saw The Hills Have Eyes. I don't want to give away too much because some of you might see it.

My basic review is:

It is what it is.

If you're looking for a great script, this isn't for you. If you're looking for top notch acting, this isn't for you.

But, if you enjoy great makeup and lots of gore, then run out to see this one.

It's entertaining and creepy, but not as good as I thought it was going to be.

In the horror film genre, I give it 6.5 out of 10.

Sounds good to me! I really want to see this.

I have no idea why I like this type of movie so much, since I'm such a wuss.

I just saw the original last month, and liked it.

Will be seeing this one eventually as well.

I saw the original and didn't care for it at all. Actually fell asleep during it. Willing to see the remake though. Hated the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" but LOVED the new one! So maybe I will enjoy this movie the 2nd time around.

Wait to The Descent comes your way. The best British horror since Wicker Man.

The Wicker Man. I've heard alot about this one, and want to see it.

But wait, Hollywood is making a remake as we speak! Serious. Nick Cage plays the lead.

It's the 70's all over again.

I can actually see Nic Cage in the lead role but they'll never find anyone who can surpass Christopher Lee's supporting role.
