Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer. Master of horror Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes) gives us a new chapter in the Scream series that began back in 1996.
Freddy Krueger returns in “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” a contemporary re-imagining of the horror classic. A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another…but when they sleep, there is no escape.
The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lake house, Mari (Sara Paxton) and her friend Paige (Martha MacIsaac) are kidnapped by psychopathic prison escapee Krug (Garret Dillahunt) and his crew—deranged girlfriend Sadie (Riki Lindhome), sadistic brother Francis (Aaron Paul) and powerless son Justin (Spencer Treat Clark). Terrified and left for dead, Mari’s only hope for survival is to make it back to parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe.
What started with the Carter family, clearly didn’t end with the Carter family. As part of a routine mission, a unit of national guard soldiers stop at a New Mexican outpost only to find the isolated research camp mysteriously deserted. After spotting a distress signal in a distant mountain range, the team decides to commence a search and rescue mission into the hills. Little do they know that these are the very hills that the ill-fated Carter family once visited, and that a tribe of cannibalistic mutants lies in wait.
A new take on Wes Craven's 1977 film of the same name, "The Hills Have Eyes" is 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. The film stars Aaron Stanford, Ted Levine, Kathleen Quinlan, Vinessa Shaw, Emilie de Ravin, Dan Byrd and Robert Joy. The film was directed by Alexandre Aja ("Haute Tension"). NB!
