Wes Craven's classic version of this was grungier. The story was basically the same, but the production value is much more significant, here. Alexandre Aja delivers a polished sporadically shocking and gory revision with a strong ensemble cast. In perfect control of camera and lighting, the crew manages to offer visual flair where there once was none.
The antagonists are presumed victims of radiation. They are abnormally strong, though nothing more than crippled aberrations. The make-up is impressive, but the mutated creatures feel like mere overblown skin balls. Borrowing both from the road and home invasion subgenres, this remake has a lot to offer that the niche fans might call different. It was true in the 70's and 80's and still holds up.
While the technical aspects are hard to criticize, it's the absence of a straight story that comes as a deal-breaker. The film calls upon our fear of long long-distance road travel. Mind you, the idea, here, is that The Hills Have Eyes is basically a plausible but unpredictable extended simulation of the most overused horror movie trope. It's the ultimate car breakdown horror flick.
