The Hills Have Eyes movie scene

Michael Berryman stalks a stranded family in The Hills Have Eyes.

The high-definition debut of Wes Craven’s original 1977 cult horror movie The Hills Have Eyes features digitally restored 1080p video, DTS-ES 6.1 Master Audio sound and more than three hours of bonus features.

All that high-end technology and supplemental fun can only enhance this disturbing tale of the all-American Carter family (which includes E.T.’s Dee Wallace), who are on their way to California when their car breaks down in a remote Southwestern desert and they learn they’re not alone — a mutant family (that includes The Tenant‘s Michael Berryman) is stalking them.

Here’s a list of the bonus features on the Blu-ray of the film all of which are culled from a previously released DVD edition:

  • commentary with Wes Craven and Peter Locke
  • “Looking Back at The Hills Have Eyes”
  • “The Directors: The Films of Wes Craven”
  • restoration demo
  • U.S. and German trailers
  • alternate ending
  • stills galleries
  • Wes Craven biography
  • DVD-Rom features
