BIQ Guide To Remakes: The Hills Have Eyes

Original: 1977
Remake: 2006
Best Version: Remake

Wes Craven’s resume contains a strange mix of seminal and shitty horror movies. A Nightmare On Elm Street is a genuine classic. Deadly Friend is pure idiocy. The original The Hills Have Eyes is, in my frequently ignored opinion, one of Craven’s lesser movies. After directing the impressive High Tension, the highly talented Alexandre Aja got the nod to direct the remake which is, in all respects, superior to Craven’s schlocky original.
