Im a huge horror fan and was impressed by wolf creek. However i think hills have eyes remake is miles better. Its certainly tense for the first half and then cranks up a level towards the end. I would go as far to say its the best remake thats been done and has set the bar for how future remakes will be done.

Anyone that isnt impressed by the trailer attack scene or a grisly battle in a house then there is no hope for you!

I think the actual graphic scenes in Wolf Creek show more blood etc, but The Hills Have Eyes has more of these moments and will definitely cause more uneasy nights of sleep than Wolf Creek.

If you've bought these films then can I recommend ripping them to your HDD as your battery will last a lot longer playing the this way.

If you're acquiring them by other means then forget I said anything.

Stick to Wolf Creek, I find any horror film thats based, albeit loosely, around factual events has a much better impact. The Hills have Eyes remake was just a typical schlock, Hollywood gore-fest, entertaining but not that great.

Have to say I was dissapointed with both of them. I really want to see a movie that scares me but other than making me "jump" Ive not found anything.

Have to agree with neilmcl

Wolf Creek you can actually imagine happening.

The Hills Have Eyes, I though was good but typical Hollywood bloodbath.

Wolf Creek should keep them awake all night.

Only one film to take on a camping trip and that's Blair Witch Project

Also Blaire Witch 2 as it blurrs the line between movie and real life even better. And will help leave them feeling disturbed and uneasy.

People who dismiss the Blair Witch project as a pants shaky camcorder movie miss the point and miss out on a genuinely scary film.

The Descent is definitely one to watch on a camping trip, very scary.

or a caving trip maybe :eek:

If wolf creek was the scariest film you have seen i would be concerned about Hills have eyes, especially with women watching.

True, i have not seen it but have heard reports of rape scenes by zombies and guns being pointed at babies etc. Is it not just on another level to Wolf Creek ? (I saw wolf creek a couple of weeks ago on filmfour)

There aren't Zombies in it but the raping and the gun pointing does happen. I found it refreshing to have a film that didn't hold back so much.

Haute Tension/Switchblade Romance (UK title) is quite scary and gory, it's got a rural setting. It is a French film but there's only about 3-4 conversations in it anyway. Up until watching this my sister hadn't been scared by anything and she hates foriegn films, she found The Hills have Eyes to be shocking but not scary. She couldn't sleep the night we watched Haute Tension and it gave her nightmares for days.

There's a trailer here for the US release High Tension:

I have watched The Hills have eyes and didn't find it scary at all, gory yes, scary no.

I guess i will have to watch it myself, but as he suggested watching it with the ladies i thought i had better warn him. I have read some horror reviews about ladies crying through the film and turning off etc . There is a few on IMDB

I can recommend "The Descent" though :clap:

The Descent was a bit gory and they had the mood right but ultimately I didn't find it scarey.

the hills really isn't scary at all or maybe I'm just dead hard :rolleyes:

in a similar vein though "devils rejects" which I found more shocking

Definitely the former. :)

If you want scares - stick to Asian horror really.

I'd say there were a few tense moments in THHE, but other than that, it was pretty routine.

It depends what you want really, there are the scary films, i would class "The descent" in there and things like " The Omen" etc as examples . But then there are films that aren't really scary but more disturbing and you are just shown gross images to try and upset you. I believe THHE is down this road. I love scary films and i can prob watch some with the OH but films such as THHE i will def be watching alone !

Really? I thought they weren't scary at all. (I personally think Descent is highly over-rated, but that's another topic for another day).

Even THHE isn't uncomfortable viewing, although I'm a believer that you don't have to see something to be uncomfortable.

If you don't believe me, grab Hard Candy on R1 next month - the pivotal scene will make you squirm :)
