I’ll start off by saying that I’m not really sure how to sum this movie up. There are so many mixed emotions I have about this movie that I’m having trouble describing it and how I feel about it. So, to sum up this one I’ll let the IMDB.com page tell the story.

A group of young horror fans go searching for a film that mysteriously vanished years ago but instead find that the demented killer from the movie is real, and he’s thrilled to meet fans who will die gruesomely for his art.

Now, for my thoughts on this movie.(Contains Minor Spoilers!)

Pros

  • Lots of good gore and special effects weren’t bad
  • Plenty of bad ass kill scenes
  • Creative ways to end people.
  • The actual story wasn’t too bad
  • Boobies! (Yes, I’m immature, I know)

Cons

  • The acting wasn’t great.
  • The “twist” in the plot could be seen (even by me) well before they happened
  • Unnecessary rape scene that added absolutely nothing to the story or scare factor
  • The fact that the killer had these almost supernatural strength with no explanation.
  • This is just a personal complaint but, I would’ve really liked to have seen more back story on the killer.

Okay, so overall The Hills Run Red was an okay movie with lots of potential to be a great slasher flick. Like I said before, the acting could have been better but it wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t finish this. There were plenty of good things that I really thought kicked ass about this but i have to say the main thing that makes me lean more towards disliking The Hills Run Red more than being a fan is the rape part. It added nothing to the story, they didn’t show enough of it to make it scary, and it was just completely random. It came out of nowhere. Now I’m all for a shock factor and all, but, at least make it valid for the story being told. It seems like the scene was put in just because they could.

Well, there’s my opinion about The Hills Run Red. Would I recommend watching it? Sure, it has it’s good points. So, you decide and let me know what you think.
