The Hills Have Eyes 2
As part of a routine mission, a unit of National Guard soldiers stop at a New Mexican outpost only to find the isolated research camp mysteriously deserted. After spotting a distress signal in a distant mountain range, the team decides to commence a search and rescue mission into the hills. Little do they know that these are the very hills that the ill-fated Carter family once visited, and that a tribe of cannibalistic mutants lies in wait. And this time, there is an even larger force of evil at work that is intent on the soldiers' very destruction.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In case you miss what's happening, one soldier wails, 'Oh, man, we're gettin' picked off one by one, here.'"
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"It's no better or worse than most films of its genre."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"The only thing the lowly Hills 2 has going for it is the grossness, ferocity, and superhuman strength of the rampaging mutants. I mean, these guys put the ugh in ugly; they make the original's Michael Berryman look like a hunk."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"There is not any plot worth discussing: people go into a desert, some die. The end."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Well, no, they don't. If they did and if they could see, they would have read the script, passed on it, and we all would have been better for it."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"Written, disappointingly, by Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, this limp sequel to last year's remake of Wes' 1977 original feels like the work of a guy who's spent a few too many days lost in the desert."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The mutants may or may not live to kill again, but at this point, these fussed-over grotesques are better suited to wax museums than movie theaters."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"...could have been more than a pale shadow of the original if the filmmakers had taken their time..."
‑ Blake French,
"It sucks balls."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Better made than most low budget and derivative movies of its genre, but it just doesn't have enough to stand out as anything more than an improvement upon those dregs."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"One man-versus-mutant dust-up ends with a sledgehammer to the groin. Enough said."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"A secret comedy lurks within this decidedly shoddy piece of corporate horror."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"The Hills Have Eyes 2 offers another round of dull, gory fright scenes that neither push the horror envelope nor exhibit any noticeable ingenuity."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"...dull and interminable..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This horror fanatic doesn't have room for Craven in his genre anymore. Collect your cash and call it a day already, Wes..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
