====Synopsis====
 
Horror master [[:Category: Wes Craven|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 Chainsaw Massacre]] and [[Night of the Living Dead]] as one of the defining moments in American horror cinema.
