hillshaveeyes.jpgThe MPAA has handed down an NC-17 rating to Alexandre Aja's remake of Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes. Craven is producing the new film, and he talked to Empire Online about what needs to be done to get the picture an infinitely more marketable R. "It's a very strong picture and we're trying to figure out what to do with that, without ruining it," Craven said, "We have to deliver an R rating." Apparently most of the to-do has to do with a scene adapted from the original film, in which mutants attack a family in a trailer. "It's intense. Very intense. The attack on the trailer in my film was horrible, but it was over fairly fast," Craven says. "This one goes on almost ten full minutes. It's fairly faithful to the original, but Alex added other things that also make it worse, what's happening to these people."  The film will be released on March 10, but as the goriest bits will surely be excised to appease Dan Glickman, you'll have to wait to have your mind blown for the DVD.
