Today we gots a gut churning classic from Wes Craven, it's a story about a family on the way to California and have the misfortune of having their car break down in an area closed to the public because it's a nuclear testing site! Problem is, it's inhabited by violent savages ready to attack anyone found crossing into their territory.
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our haunted sand dune, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... THE HILLS HAVE EYES!
While traveling with a trailer through the desert on their way to California, retired detective Big Bob Carter (Russ Grieve) with his wife Ethel (Virginia Vincent), his son Bobby (Robert Houston), his daughters Brenda (Susan Lanier) and Lynn (Dee Wallace) along with his son-in-law Doug (Martin Speer) and their baby granddaughter Katy (Brenda Marinoff), well, they get in an accident and are now stranded. Then, strange things begin happening at night.
It's not long before the family realizes that a group of psychotic cannibal criminals are stalking them. Michael Berryman plays Pluto, his is an interesting story. He was born with the disease Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia, a rare condition leaving him with no sweat glands, hair, fingernails or teeth... And, is the nicest guy in the world!! Get this, he currently has 17 productions in some sort of completion!!! Go, Michael.
I think this is Mars, he's going through the fridge for eats when he discovers he's not alone!
Pluto fails in his mission and is confronted by the big boss, the mighty Jupiter.
The family's two German Shepherds are loose and know who the enemies are and Pluto goes down for the count. Our pets are the most wonderful little buddies we could ever have.
The family is getting its ass kicked and have to fight back. Bring in plan B!
The trap is set and Jupiter falls for it. Using a steel cable, they attach it to the rim and Bobby guns the motor!! Jupiter is dragged like a hunk of weasel gristle!
Jupiter escapes being dragged through a metal barricade when the car runs out of gas, so, he goes to the trailer and opens the door, which is rigged to explode using open butane tanks and a match under the door!
And, guess what?!.. Freakin' Jupiter survives the explosion and is finally brought down with Bobby's pistol. What an ordeal these guys has been through!
But, it's not over, Mars has attacked Doug now! So, Beauty grabs a rattle snake and it bites Mars in the neck, which slows him down long enough for Doug to grab his knife and stabs the Goddamn Hell out of him!
You really need to see this scene to believe it, Doug goes absolutely insane as he stabs Mars over, and over, and over, making sure the son of a bitch suffers like the ass hole he is... Recommended flick!!! Join us again Wednesday for more insanity from... The Dungeon!!
