The current horror engulfed the wave of remakes we have, unfortunately, mostly non-classical pieces from the 70's. years. But don't despair, the Festival of the thick-skinned viewer these gaps readily complement. After last year's commissioning of the original and the new version of the Texas chainsaw massacre this year you can look forward to a similar pair of the original - the remake of the hills have eyes. This is already today a classic slasher film stood at the birth of the so-called "new american horror", which in the works of film directors George And. Romero, Toba Hooper, Wes Craven and John Carpenter revitalizoval slowly dying horror genre and brought it from the environment of the gothic novel and vampire stories right into the present. The authors have placed the emphasis on the realism of the administration, often bordering on dokumentarismem, and your movies have significantly pushed boundaries of film violence. In their time these low-budget pictures of his open corporeality and uncompromising brutality have shocked the audience and fueled the disgust and all sorts of prohibitions. Up over time have become the subject of serious interest and from the background of their bloody stories emerged a remarkable comment the condition then America (the lingering conflict in Vietnam, student riots, civil unrest, the movement for equal rights for minorities). Cravenovy the hills have eyes tell a simple story, inspired by the legend of the family of the clan well, sawney Beaneho, whose members in the 17. century in Scotland, hitting, olupovali, killed and ate travelers. In the film, typically american family Carter stuck on vacation in the middle of the desert and soon must fight literally of his life, zdegenerovanými natives. If they want to Carter to survive, they must mobilize all forces and to throw away all your inhibitions. A significant role in the film plays a barren wasteland, a kind of archetypal landscape, forming an integral part of the founding of the american myth. In a deeper plan are both struggling family of mirror image, a metaphor of America devouring itself. The Film, like for example Peckinpahovi Scarecrows (1971) or Boormanovo Deliverance (1972), discusses the thin line separating civilized man from the savage, the animal in each of us.
