The Hills Have Eyes 2

--Reviewed by Lindy Loo

Plotline: Well, since they already sent a family into the middle of the desert to get picked off by folks mutated by nuclear-testing, this time they decide to send the army in. There's not much more to it than that really.

Scariness factor: I dunno--I think it was TRYING to be suspenseful, but it wasn't really.

Gross-Out Factor: Like the first one, it's pretty high in the gore-department.

Complaints: Visually, this movie was very monochromatic. You can tell just from the pictures. And plot-wise, it obviously served no other purpose than to give the filmmakers an excuse to have mutants pick-off people one by one in extremely violent and "innovative" ways. Also, the whole female-soldier deal was lame--not only did we have to sit through the obligatory "female character happens to be the ONLY soldier who strips down to a tank-top and then of course later falls into water so that we get to have wet-t-shirt erotica"-type crap, we also had to sit through one of them getting raped,

High Points: Making fun of this movie. As always, all logic was COMPLETELY absent in this movie, so if nothing else, it was fun to shout at, boo, and make fun of. If you're gonna watch it, definitely watch it with someone else.

Overall: Lame. But perhaps worth watching just to make fun of.

Grade: D+
