The Hills Have Eyes = Disturbingly Awesome!

I am a pretty big fan of movies that are made to scare you. Especially slasher type movies that are drenched in violence and shock value. I have seen a most of the new ones over the past few months - The Devil's Rejects, Wolf Creek, Hostel, Saw (which was atrocious), Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead, etc... but I would have to say that The Hills Have Eyes takes the cake. I rented this a couple nights ago - and wow. Talk about a violent movie - the antagonists are a wiley bunch of nuclear fallout mutants that murder and eat innocent people who get lost in the dessert hills of New Mexico - so as you can imagine it is pretty awesome. Also, Claire (from Lost) is one of the main characters - which is nice. This movie is good if you like slasher movies, but I don't know if would consider it a good movie - it is kinda hard to judge movies like this on that scale because they are all kinda bad - that's just the nature of the beast I guess. So that's it - I give it my official recommendation, also check out The Devil's Rejects it's also awesomely disturbing. None of these beats Dawn of the Dead, though.

Hey Matt, "DaddyFraser" read my blog! hahaha. That's awesome! And, I too watched this movie this week. No sleep! I did enjoy the fact that "Beast" got a piece of the weirdos! Check out Cabin Fever and Slither for some campy horror laughs... And, Dawn of the Dead is off the heezee.

I wanna check out Slither - I don't think it's out on DVD yet - I will have to check it out when it hits the shelves.
For everyone else - I linked my friend Sara's blog in my links section. Give her some love.

dude. for shock value, the old tex chainsaw is a much better rep for the slasher genre. shot with hand held cameras it scared the bejesus out of me when it came out in the 70's. oh, and i checked out sara's blog, great start.
