Our Score
Both Wes Craven's 1977 original and its 2006 remake were outstanding horror movies, but while the frightening viciousness on display here is never less than compelling, Martin Weisz's sequel lacks the suspense of its predecessors. A group of rookie soldiers mounts a search and rescue mission for some missing atomic scientists in the mountainous New Mexico desert. Little do they know that mutant cannibals lurk in them there hills, their master plan to kill the men and keep the women as breeders to ensure survival. Series creator Craven and his son Jonathan share the screenplay credits, but their intended Iraq War allegory is hampered by macho posturing and cartoonish dialogue. However, while some might find the unremitting gore tasteless, the raw effectiveness of this brutal Southern Comfort retread is undeniable.


National Guard recruits on a training mission in the desert respond to a distress call from an isolated research camp. Finding the outpost abandoned, the soldiers investigate the fate of the scientists who were working there - only to stumble into the clutches of a band of mutant cannibals. Sequel to the remake of the cult horror movie, starring Michael McMillian and Jessica Stroup.
