Private Project

The Hills Only Have Eyes For You

Kirby Wilmont, the black sheep (i.e. vegetarian) middle child in a
family of homicidal mutant cannibals, dares to dream of a better
life, one where the maniacal traditions of his family are a thing
of the past. And maybe a salad every once in a while wouldn't kill
anyone. Literally. So when the latest car full of road-tripping
twenty-somethings (including Matilda, the apple of Kirby's eye)
becomes ensnared in the family's deadly traps, Kirby seizes his
chance to help Matilda and her friends escape‚ and perhaps free
his own soul in the process.
