The Hills Have Eyes

The Hills Have Eyes

There are a lot of people who enjoy the experience of watching a film like this. Feeling like they need to take a shower after it's over. I genuinely want to understand why. Because for me, the difference in nuance between Texas Chainsaw and something like this is much wider for me. I can point to directorial choices, or even just the nuance in character within the writing. Despite commonalities in how savage and low budget they are, Texas felt thoughtful.

So outside of providing historical insight into one of the greatest horror directors of all time's early career choices, I do want to understand how a film that to me feels like an MST3K episode (if it weren't for the brutality) has endured in the way it has. Because I either missed something, or seem to be in the minority on it.
