The lucky ones died first…” Taking inspiration from the Scottish folklore legend of Sawney Bean, Wes Craven’s *The Hills Have Eyes *is a grizzly cult classic.

The Carter family are crossing the desert wastes heading for California when they are attacked by a group of savage cannibals. Mr Carter is crucified, filled with petrol and set on fire. Mrs Carter is shot in the stomach and left for dead. For the rest of the Carter family it becomes a battle for survival. With the aid of their Alsatian dogs, the Carters turn the tables, reverting to their own primitive instincts; they begin wiping out the cannibal punks. While Alexandre Aja’s remake from 2006 was a worthy reimagining, Craven’s original has a gritty intensity that still packs a hard punch even now, on the eve of its 40th anniversary.
