The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 (1984)

I’m not a huge fan of the 1977 original, but goodness, even it deserves better than this poor excuse for a sequel. About a third of the running time seems to be comprised of flashbacks from the earlier film, and the rest of the movie is primarily a new group of characters walking around talking about the events from the first movie. It’s mind-numbingly redundant and boring to watch, not to mention filled with colossally stupid elements, like Beast the dog’s flashbacks from the first movie. Wes Craven has a particularly spotty filmography, but this has to be his worst-ever.
