Trailer Bulletin: The Hills Have Eyes & When a Stranger Calls

by | December 23, 2005 | Comments

There’s been a bona-fide explosion of new movie trailers over the past week or two … but this is the only one I’ve watched more than once, because I’m a desperately sick horror junkie. Hardcore gorehounds are obviously familiar with Wes Craven‘s classic "The Hills Have Eyes," and now comes the very first trailer for the remake by "High Tension" director Alexandre Aja. And it’s pretty darn cool.

"The story of a family road trip that goes terrifyingly awry when the travelers become stranded in a government atomic zone. Miles from nowhere, the Carters soon realize the seemingly uninhabited wasteland is actually the breeding ground of a blood-thirsty mutant family… and they are the prey."

Scheduled for release (with an R rating, thank the horror gods) on March 10th, the new-fangled "Hills Have Eyes" stars Aaron Stanford, Ted Levine, Kathleen Quinlan, Vinessa Shaw, Emilie de Ravin, and a bunch of mega-mutated murderers. Can’t wait.

Also just hitting the internets earlier today is the all-new trailer for Screen Gems’ PG-13 remake of "When a Stranger Calls," which you can see right here.

This one’s a re-do of the classic "Have you checked on the children?" story, only instead of Carol Kane and Charles Durning, we got Camilla Belle and Brian Geraghty. Simon West, the man behind "Con Air," "The General’s Daughter," and "Tomb Raider," is in the director’s chair for this remake, which opens on February 3rd.

So there you are: Trailers for two new remakes of two 70s horror flicks. And now you have at least two months in which to rent the originals. Don’t forget!
