The Hills Have Eyes Part 2

 (1984)

The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

A group of bikers, which includes some of the survivors from the original film, embark on a journey by bus to a biker race near the desert of the infamous incidents. However, because of a mistake they are late and decide to take a shortcut through the desert. Halfway through the desert the bus breaks down. While trying to repair the bus, some of the group wander off, and wind up in the traps of the survivors of the mutant family of the first. Then the mutants go after the rest...

The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Image Entertainment's Blu-ray release of the original Hills Have Eyes last year was an unmitigated disaster, a standard definition up-convert plagued by edge enhancement and aliasing, fuzzy textures and splotchy colors. It looks horrible. Part II, however, gets a bonafide 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer courtesy of Kino-Lorber, and the results--while not what you might call eye candy--are satisfying and faithful to source. First of all, there's no doubt that you're getting an actual high definition image this time. Though the picture is often quite soft--this is, after all, a dingy low-budget 35mm feature from the mid-1980s--there's more fine detail here than you'd ever spot on the equivalent DVD. If you watch a lot of cheapo horror from this time period, you've probably got a good idea what you're in for, clarity-wise. Color reproduction seems as good as can be expected as well, with no major tone fluctuations and a picture that's decently saturated. The only issue here--and this stems from the way the film was shot, I'm sure--is that the black levels during some of the nighttime scenes are seriously oppressive. In some of the underexposed and under-lit shots it's even hard to tell what's going on. I wouldn't advise watching this one with any bright lights on--or in a window-filled room during the day--particularly if your screen is prone to glare. The print itself features some negligible damage--white/black specks, mostly--but nothing especially distracting. There's no sign of overt edge enhancement, DNR, or compression woes either.


The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

While I'm pretty tolerant of age-related print damage, poorly recorded and reproduced audio grates a bit more forcibly on my nerves. The Hills Have Eyes II features an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track that's brash, overly loud, and even occasionally distorted. I have no doubt Kino did what they could with the original audio--which probably wasn't much--but the end result is a peaky, bright and brittle-sounding crackle-a-thon that, at best, might generously be described with a wince and a shrug as listenable. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's an endurance test--you'll get through it with only mild aural discomfort--but the mix is far from a pleasurable experience, with tinny effects and a top-heavy score. The dialogue, even when murky, is at least understandable, but if you need or want subtitles you're out of luck--none are supplied.
