The Hills Have Eyes... Now there's two of them. Yes, more creepy mutant human creatures here from the desert of New Mexico. Movie makers like to put a lot of strange beings there. I wonder why. Anyway, the victims this time aren't tourists but members of the US National Guard. They are inadvertently led into the caves below the desert where they fight, maim, and kill fellow human beings born with birth defects and bent on making fun of normal people. Oh, well. This movie's got to have bad guys, and director Martin Weisz gives no qualms about making them more grotesquely horrifying than the first one, which was really a remake of an earlier film by Alexandre Aja.
