Synopsis
This atrocious sequel to the 1977 horror classic is padded with so much of that film's footage that it seems more like a rerun than a new story. The entire cast seems to have lengthy flashbacks of the previous movie's events, including -- in what must be a cinematic first -- the German shepherd dog. The remaining screen time is spent on an uninvolving battle between some bland motocross bikers and the cannibal hillfolk. To be fair, director Wes Craven has stated that the film was extensively tampered with prior to release. That may get Craven off the hook, but doesn't make this muddled mess any easier to watch. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

How to follow up a horror classic with stupid 80s fun! by toddandsteph October 26, 2006 - 9:27 PM PDT

The Hills Have Eyes 2: Ole HughBennie'll probably be up in arms after this review, but I really enjoyed this mid-80s sequel that's less like the original and more like a dry slasher flick. The plot is as follows: the mutant kid from pt. 1, Bobby from pt. 1, and a group of friends go across the desert in a bus to test out some new super dirtbikes they rigged up. Naturally, the bus breaks down, and the group finds itself at the hands of Pluto and his uncle Reaper. What follows is a pretty inept horror flick, but inept in that way most 80s slashers are. Neither Pluto or Reaper are that threatening, most of the gore shots happen off-screen, there isn't any dead dog, but there is a great deal of naked female forms. What it does have is terrible acting, cliched moments, and one or two neat setpieces. Basically, a formulaic 80s horror movie that's fun if you let it be. ** and 1/2 * out've *****
