Having recently died at the time of my writing, Wes Craven is heavy on my mind. A great horror filmmaker, dare I say an auteur. Not every last one of his films was perfect, but he did a great job crafting some of the most memorable and iconic horror we’ve seen.
In particular, I’ve always loved The Hills Have Eyes. Even further, while not all of them are good at all, I’m a big fan of the whole series. So I figure I’d put all the reviews in one place.
Just click on the image – they go in order of release, The Hills Have EyesThe Hills Have Eyes Part IIThe Hills Have Eyes (remake), The Hills Have Eyes II (sequel to the remake) – and you’ll find a review for each individual film. Hope you’ll enjoy! If you have comments, go ahead and drop them on the reviews and we can have a civil chat about nasty horror movies.

I'm a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) graduate and a Master's student with a concentration in early modern literature and print culture. Although I've studied everything from Medieval literature onward, also spending an extensive time studying post-modern critical theory; I have a large interest in both Marshall McLuhan and Jean Baudrillard. I completed my Honours thesis on John Milton's Paradise Lost + the communal aspects of its conception, writing, and its later printing/publication. This thesis will serve as the basis for a book about Milton's authorship and his influence on pop culture (that continues to this day). My Master's program involves a Creative Thesis, which will be a full-length, semi-autobiographical novel. Author Lisa Moore is supervising the writing of this thesis. I'm already looking towards doing a dissertation for a PhD in 2019, focusing on early modern print culture in Europe and the constructions of gender identities. - I'm a film writer, author, and a freelance editor. My short stories have been printed in Canada and the U.S. I edited Newfoundland author Earl B. Pilgrim's latest novel The Adventures of Ernest Doane Volume I. Aside from that I have a short screenplay titled "New Woman" that went into post-production during early 2018. I was part of a pilot episode for "The Ship" on CBC; I told a non-fiction story of mine about my own addiction/alcoholism live for an audience with nine other storytellers. - Meanwhile, I'm writing more screenplays, working on editing a couple novels I've finished, and running this website/writing all of its content. I used to write for Film Inquiry frequently during 2016-17. I'm currently contributing to a new website launching in May 2018, Scriptophobic; my column is titled Serial Killer Celluloid.
