I was kinda skeptical about a sequel to a remake. The trailers for this movie were very promising. The gore and action were definitely delivered and overall it was better than “The Hills Have Eyes” (2006). Even though it doesn’t feel like a Wes Craven movie, it was still fairly good.
The opening sequences were pretty cool with almost everyone dying, and when I say almost the people who didn’t die most likely wish they were dead. In the mines of a U.S. military base is where this movie is set. A National Guard training squad is sent to the Top Secret testing part of the base, only to find there is no one home. With two people staying back to guard the camp the rest of the unit searches for the missing people. One person is found in a Porta-Potty and dies as soon as they pull him out. At this point in the movie, all of the National Guard people watching are probably pretty mad. They are portrayed to be bumbling idiots that can’t do anything right. So the movie goes on and everyone dies one by one with a lot of cool spatter death scenes in between and of course the movie ends in true Wes Craven style with one mutant guy watching the survivors to where all you see of him is his hand and the screen he is looking at.
I give this movie 7 stars, mostly for being a Wes Craven flick.
