| The one with the dog flashback.
I've read that Wes Craven made this belated sequel to his classic The Hills Have Eyes because he was desperate for work, and that things didn't go quite as planned due to the producers withholding funds; I'm not surprised that he's making excuses, because compared to the original, this is laughable stuff—a formulaic slasher that is so poorly conceived that, at times, it almost feels like a comedy.

On the flip side, I never found it boring (despite numerous flashbacks to the first film, including one from a dog!): the action moves along at a reasonable lick with some fun kills, a few reasonable scares, a bit of gore (including a juicy throat slash), and some gratuitous female nudity (somehow, despite the film being set in a desert, Wes still manages to shoehorn in a shower scene).

Part II ends in a suitably daft manner with the survivors successfully defeating the final member of the film's cannibal clan by devising a trap and finding the necessary equipment in mere seconds, and then carrying out their plan without a hitch, despite the whole idea being silly in the extreme.

I give the film a rating of 5/10: there are far worse slashers out there.
