Wes Craven's 1977 horror classic will hit Blu-ray next week.
In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment is working on 'The Hills Have Eyes' for Blu-ray on September 6.
Wes Craven ('A Nightmare on Elm Street,' 'Shocker,' 'Scream') gave 70’s filmgoers a whole new definition of disturbing with 'The Hills Have Eyes,' starring Dee Wallace ('The Howling,' 'E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial') and John Steadman ('Fade to Black,' 'Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie'). The Carters are an all-American family on their way to California when their car breaks down far from civilization in the remote southwestern desert. But they are not alone. Watching from the hills is a very different kind of clan, a family of marauding inbred cannibals with an unspeakable taste for human flesh and monstrous brutality. In the nightmare that follows, what depravities must this wholesome family endure to survive? In a primal wasteland ruled by lust and rage, who will become the most shocking savages of all?
The Blu-ray will feature digitally-restored 1080p video, DTS-ES 6.1 Master Audio soundtrack, and supplements include: Commentary with Wes Craven and Peter Locke; Looking Back At The Hills Have Eyes; The Directors: The Films of Wes Craven; Restoration Demo; Alternate Ending; Still Galleries; Wes Craven Biography; U.S. and German Trailers; and DVD-Rom features.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $17.97.
