The Hills Have Eyes - Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD from 26 Sept

The Hills Have Eyes is one of the late, great Wes Craven’s seminal masterpieces, as well as one of the enduring classics of American horror. A gruelling tale of rape, revenge and cannibalism, the film helped redefine what we think of as a horror movie and it’s presented here as never before in a stunning 4K restoration.

Horror master Wes Craven achieved critical and commercial success with the likes of Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street but for many genre fans, the director’s seminal 1977 effort The Hills Have Eyes remains his masterpiece.

Taking a detour whilst on route to Los Angeles, the Carter family run into trouble when their campervan breaks down in the middle of the desert. Stranded, the family find themselves at the mercy of a group of monstrous cannibals lurking in the surrounding hills. With their lives under threat, the Carters are forced to fight back by any means necessary.

As gruelling a viewing experience today as it was upon initial release, The Hills Have Eyes stands alongside the likes of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead as one of the defining moments in American horror cinema.

Arrow Video’s new release of this genre mainstay sees it look better than ever before with a brand new 4K restoration, supervised by the film’s producer Peter Locke, and a host of extras and special features. This really is the definitive release of a film that has been often imitated but never bettered.
