The hills have eyes

Another remake which seems to have disappointed a rather large crowd due to it not showing anything new and the scenes almost being thrown aimlessly minute after minute. It's sad to see how people overlook this masterpiece in its own genre. It goes over the boundaries of most horror films and is not the regular Hollywoold film if you ask anyone. Take for example the rape scene that occurs when the mutated people are in the caravan, most Hollywood studio bosses would have asked the director to drop this scene. The music that also accompanied the film was in its own level another masterpiece. It never felt as if it was out of place and set the tone for what was going to happen next as well as setting the mood. Of course it let us know that something was going to happen but it only made us wonder how it would be shown on screen. The cast did a great job in bringing the characters to life. Credit must be given to actors who played the roles of the mutated people. Although the characters they played were made to seem emotionless and their motives were not really established, they still did a good job. The family that had to go through this ordeal also played a good role. Although the performances by the actors did not arouse enough sympathy within me, I was able to somewhat share in their grief mentally. If i was to rate this movie out of 10, I would give it an 8. It loses points due to the fact it was a remake and no clear motives of the mutated people's endavours were stated on screen. If you have not seen this movie i recommend you do.
