90 mins – United States 1977 – Dir: Wes Craven
Starring: Susan Lanier, Robert Houston and Dee Wallace
The Carter family are crossing the desert wastelands heading for California when their car breaks down. While Mr. Carter and his son-in-law go seeking help, strange things begin to happen and the Carter family soon discover that they are not alone. Soon, they find themselves in a fight for survival. The lucky ones died first…
Following the infamous THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (1972), Wes Craven cemented his reputation as a notable horror movie director with this ferocious picture. While Alexandre Aja’s remake from 2006 is a worthy reimagining, Craven’s original THE HILLS HAVE EYES has a gritty intensity that still packs a hard punch even now, over forty-five years after it was first released.
Some vintage trailers for other Wes Craven movies will be screened before the main feature.
