Warped & Faded: Weird Wednesday and the Birth of AGFA

The Hills Have Eyes

Opens Nov 13, 2021

In honor of two decades of anarchic preservation, we present a selection of films that lit a fire — lovingly restored by the American Genre Film Archive themselves.

New 4K restoration! From the mind of Wes Craven, THE HILLS HAVE EYES stands alongside the likes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead as one of the defining moments in American indie horror.

Taking a detour whilst en route to L.A., the Carter family is in deep when their camper van breaks down in the middle of the desert — and they find themselves at the mercy of monstrous cannibals lurking in the hills. With their lives under threat, the Carters are forced to fight back by any means necessary.

Horror master Craven achieved critical and commercial success with the likes of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream — but for many genre fans, the director's seminal '77 effort remains his masterpiece.
