“In an age where most horror films are either sequels or remakes; one should rejoice when original slashers worth a damn pop up.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Hills Run Redu0026quot; has a knockout hook that sets up quite a decent story. A mysterious u0026quot;lostu0026quot; slasher film, called u0026quot;The Hills Run Redu0026quot;, has many horror fans obsessed with finding it. Such is the case with Tyler, a horror buff, who sets out with his friend and girlfriend to visit the filmu0026#39;s locations in order to make a documentary. Along for the ride is the filmu0026#39;s notorious directoru0026#39;s daughter, Alexa, and once on location the group gets to enliven some true horror.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGood story, solid acting and some decent grue ensure u0026quot;The Hills Run Redu0026quot; has some definite highlights and the first half works very well. Present are the irritating u0026quot;fast-cutsu0026quot; that have invaded all horror films, it seems, but a decent atmosphere is built and the old u0026quot;woods-scenariou0026quot; in slashers never fails when well executed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eA fair amount of jokes and u0026quot;rulebreakersu0026quot; enter the film and work surprisingly well (the cell phone bit and the gun (guns are never present in slasher films)) and avoid going over the top. But despite the short running time the film loses steam and goes for one ending too many; both of which arenu0026#39;t too good (donu0026#39;t turn off after the first end credits appear).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Hills Run Redu0026quot; is a solid slasher film for fans of the genre. Most can appreciate the fact that many things are well done here, the film remains faithful to the genre while poking fun at some obvious faults inherent with it and itu0026#39;s quite the gory feast as well. The only ones yawning are not slasher fans to begin with, I think.”
