To celebrate the release of The Hills Have Eyes – on limited edition Blu-ray and DVD 3rd October – we are giving away a copy courtesy of Arrow Video!

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.

Arrow Video’s new release of this genre mainstay sees it look better than ever before with a brand new 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.

“We can revisit The Hills Have Eyes and be reminded of a time when horror was anything but safe, and you had a sense that there was a madman in charge and no censor or distributor was going to take his film away from him.” Empire

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. For me, it’s always going to be A Nightmare on Elm Street. It ticks all the boxes – scary, unpredictable, fun and watchable over and over again! It definitely has a special place in my heart.

  2. SCREAM, I don’t care how many other people comment this. It’s a modern classic! It’s the second horror movie I ever seen. It’s been with me since childhood. The mask used to terrify me, but now I just think it looks freaking cool! The characters are well thought out and I love that they didn’t need any sexual activities to be a great slasher flick. The acting, writing and directing is the best I’ve seen in any horror film. I love it’s comedic style too. It will – and always will be – my favourite horror movie. The entire franchise is good. a huge fanof the new TV show haha. I still keep hope alive that they’ll make a fifth movie soon!

  3. A Nightmare on Elm Street only because the Surreal aspects of the Film make it more believable.

  4. So many good one to choose from not including The hills have eyes! Deadly Blessing, Scream, Scream 2 (which i prefer over the first one), The people under the stairs, but Id have to choose Nightmare on elm street. Its the 1st horror film I ever saw at the age of 13! Really freaked me out but I now love a good horror film because of it ????

  5. The Last House on the Left. It’s an angry, scathing and thoroughly anarchic film which remains difficult to watch 44 years after it was released. If the late director hadn’t emerged as a thoroughly lovely guy, you’d have wondered what twisted mind could have made it.

  6. Scream as a director so good it inspired lots of other films and as a writer A Nightmare on Elm Street.

  7. i had a bit of a “wes-a-thon” after he died, checking out the classics and any films of his i hadn’t seen.

    the one that stood out was “my soul to take”. it got slaughtered when it came out, and i avoided it because of that, but it is actually really good. it’s kinda slow-paced, and not especially gory, but it was a nice “throw-back” style horror film, and i really dug that they had a “whodunnit” element mixed in with the occult stuff.

    it’s no nightmare, hills or scream, those films redefined their genres, but it’s massively under-appreciated.

  8. For me it’s got to be “Freddy vs Jason”, double the fright-fest with two of horrors most enduring characters.

  9. A Nightmare on Elm Street – a classic film with an original and enduring on-screen rapscallion, Freddy Krueger. Any film that features a tongue phone and the vicious slaying of a Johnny Depp character has to be good.

  10. Red Eye – good thriller with two great leads.

  11. A Nightmare on Elm Street because when it was first released i was only 15 and the thought a killer could come through your dream scared me stiff for many of months after watching it

  12. The Last House on the Left. The first film I saw by him.

  13. Scream – best horror movie of its generation and inluences on today

  14. I love most of his movies but a Nightmare on Elm Street was where it all began for me. As a child i watched these even though I shouldn’t of but I was hooked on the genre ever since and collected Freddy stuff through the years. Great Director and great movies.

  15. The first Scream movie – a shot in the arm for the horror genre; fresh and original.

  16. Scream

  17. Scream – we have a lot to thank it for. Not least the re invigoration of the horror genre.

  30. Scream – I loved that film when I was a teenager, it’s so iconic to me.

I really love ‘The People Under The Stairs’ The film is tense from start to end and Wes manages to cram a wholefully evil pair of characters (Mum and Dad) alongside two wholeheartidly good/pure characters (Alice, Roach) The balance of that juxtaposition of morality is what makes Wes Craven a master of cinema for me, the film still stresses me out to this day. i love it!
