THE HILLS HAVE EYES is certainly my favorite from Craven. That's the one film that gave me repeat nightmares as a child. NEW NIGHTMARE is probably the one I'd pick for his most underrated even though I haven't watched it in quite a while (hopefully this year's Halloween Challenge). I watched THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW for the first time last year and was really disappointed by it. LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is a film I watch a lot but it's still a poorly made film to me. HILLS 2....well, I guess he needed to feed his family. Posted Image

And I'll go out on the limb and say the first two SCREAM movies were GREAT.

I've been meaning to purchase the SE DVD of THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977) for years (though I'm still on the fence which edition to go for) and will also eventually rent THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW (1988) and THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS (1991); it's just that I'm in no hurry to do either of those two thingsPosted Image.
