The Classic Finally Comes To DVD

The Carters are an all-American family on their way to California when their car breaks down far from civilization in the remote southwestern desert. But they are not alone: Watching from the hills is a very different kind of clan, a family of marauding inbred cannibals with an unspeakable taste for human flesh and monstrous brutality. In the nightmare that follows, what depravities must this wholesome family endure to survive? And in a primal wasteland ruled by lust and rage, who will become the most shocking savages of all?

Dee Wallace, James Whitworth, Susan Lanier and Michael Berryman co-star in this disturbing cult classc written and directed by horror-master Wes Craven (Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream). Anchor Bay is proud to present this ultimate two-disc edition of The Hills Have Eyes fully restored from original negative materials, presented in explosive DTS 6.1 and 5.1 Dolby Surround EX Audio and loaded with startling new extras for the first time ever on DVD!
