The Hills Run Red
Although clichéd at times,
The Hills Red Run is actually a
thoroughly entertaining horror movie that even stars Australia’s very
own Sophie Monk. The story revolves around Tyler, a man who is seeking
an urban myth, that of a banned and lost slasher movie called “The Hills
Run Red” which involved a killer named Babyface. Tyler is hoping to turn
this investigation into a documentary.
Interesting enough, the director also vanished with the
movie over 20 years ago and only a few bits and pieces of this movie
remains. Through Tyler’s investigation, he uncovers that Concannon, the
director of the movie had a daughter called Alex (Sophie Monk) who works
at a local strip club. Eventually, Alex agrees to help Tyler with his
investigation and she shows Tyler and his film crew where it was filmed.
This is where the horror starts as the crew gets attacked
by “Babyface” and Alex is abducted by this masked killer. With some
great use of flashbacks to the “original” film, the blood and gore
begins to flow. Although there are a few clichés in the movie, the story
is well written and acted by all involved, especially by Monk who plays
a disturbed young woman.
