Was Hills Have Eyes gore porn? There was no torture or anything. Gore, yes, but not Hostel or Saw or anything. I can stand gore, just not torture.
The "burn the father alive in front of the entire family" scene was obnoxiously long and drawn out to the point where it just became annoying. Now that I think about it, I'm confusing a few scenes from the Hills pt2. That sequel was a total shock-joke. The opening birth scene, the monster-rape scene, etc... all crap that could have been done better.
FWIW - I have no problem with gore-porn if that's the intended purpose of the movie, like Slaughtered Vomit Dolls or the August Underground series. I just have a problem when an originally awesome, scary movie is remade into a cheap, tacky shell of it's former self. Extra blood doesn't make up for bad acting/writing.
