Wes Craven’s mutant classic The Hills Have Eyes (1977) has deservedly earned cult status over the years, launching the career of genre favourite, Michael Berryman, whose small part in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest a few years prior had been somewhat overlooked thanks to Nicholson’s superlative performance.
