More on The Hills Have Eyes

Saw the trailer for this one last night, and it looked promising. Lots of cuts in the trailer, but the images I could make out looked pretty scary. One motif was a fireman's axe. There was also a scary, mutated-looking kid. Scary children can be very disturbing. There were some good ones in In the Mouth of Madness, and who could forget the twins from The Shining?

Hills also has the best tagline ever conceived for a horror movie:

"The lucky ones die first."

How awesome is that? Such simplicity and savagery tucked neatly away in a tidy package (unlike this sentence). I'd almost see the movie exclusively because of that.
