One of the more brilliant bits of filmmaking to appear on cinema screens this year is the teaser trailer for The Hills Have Eyes II, which opens on an empty desert landscape at sunset to the bluesy ballad “Insect Eyes” by Devendra Banhart. A boot enters the frame, then a body, dressed in post-apocalyptic gear and dragging a corpse across the rocky ground with a rope. Another figure follows, and, as his rope pulls taut, the camera tilts to reveal that the viewer is the second victim. In less than a minute, image and music marry to create an indelible aesthetic.

If only the film it was designed to promote was as artistically rendered. The scene, which is also featured on the poster, unfortunately never even appears in the movie.

What we get instead are stock characters in a thin plot about a misfit military unit delivering supplies to top-secret Sector 16 in the Yuma Desert of New Mexico. The site of nuclear tests decades ago, the mines in the hills are now occupied by mutants, lumpily deformed so that they blend in seamlessly with the rocky desert, and particularly interested in the women, whom they keep alive for breeding purposes. The National Guardsmen and -women are picked off one by one in scenes of birth, death, rape and other carnage that aim to be as grotesque as possible. Distributor: Fox Atomic

Imagine that.  You among the many seeking wealth, riches, fame few people realize that money isn't the solution to their problems;  the way you think about money is the problem and the solution.  
    http://www.law-advisors.com/ You do not have to give any detailed information or statement to the other driver’s insurance company, not even yours. Giving any statement to your insurance firm is really rare, it is like you are giving them all your evidence, personal case related information so that they can be prepared to pay you less and use any point against you. Which is why you need to avoid it as they are first going to care about their firm and later about you? They are really experienced and hold the best art of negotiation; any point in your statement can be selected, recorded and then used against your case.
