Just a year ago, Alexandre Aja's remake of the 1977 Wes Craven classic The Hills Have Eyes assaulted theaters. It was one of the many, many, many horror films that was released in 2006, and didn't particularly set itself apart from the pack in any real way. It did, however, make about $41 million at the domestic box office, which is easily enough to justify a sequel in the genre.

And it didn't take long to crank one out. Martin Weisz directs from a screenplay by Craven and his son Jonathan. This time around, the story will follow a group of National Guard trainees who find themselves stranded out in the New Mexico desert - yes, that same desert where our friendly mutant friends from the first film reside. They're not precisesly the *same* mutants, but hey, they're all probably pretty mad about whatever happened to get them that way. Not everyone goes the Dr. Xavier route.

The film stars a bunch of people you probably don't know, though Michael Bailey Smith, who played Pluto in the first film, returns as Hades in this go-round. Still, with Craven's participation in something other than a producer's role, there's hope that there might be some scares in the franchise yet. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
