If I see another movie with a bunch of teenagers lost in a middle of nowhere, getting killed by a killer with a mask I’m going to puke. the hills run redAlthough there is a lot of nudity and mild gore in this flick it is still a commercial milking slasher movie without anything new. The only reason that I saw it is because I read that someone compared it to Martyrs and how it’s great and bla bla. Story is somewhat original, with the crazy filmmaker immersing himself in his movie, like Midnight Movie, but that idea seemed liked something very unprocessed. The Hills Run Red is a movie that fans of a slasher genre will find satisfying and regular movie fans, well, it really depends on your taste. William Sadler’s performance here was something otherworldly. I don’t know if he liked the script or what it was, but he was utterly creepy here as the mysterious Concannon. Opposite to him is Sophie Monk, a true pleasure to watch. And she was really good here too.

So, a three friends decide to track down an obscure filmmaker Concannon to make a documentary about his movie The Hills Run Red. Of course, he lives in a middle of nowhere, in a remote cabin (sound familiar). As I said, because of the nudity and the whole “I have seen this movie somewhere already” vibe it is entertaining to watch. This is the key. You should watch it as such and try to have as much fun as you can while paying attention to subtle nodes to the slasher genre or predicting what’s going to happen next.
