The film follows the Carters, a suburban family targeted by a family of cannibal savages after becoming stranded in the Nevada desert. Following Craven's directorial debut, The Last House on the Left , producer Peter Locke was interested in financing a similar project. Craven based the film's script on the legend of cannibal Sawney Bean , which Craven viewed as illustrating how supposedly civilized people could become savage. The film's crew were initially unenthusiastic about the project, but this changed as they came to believe that they were making a special movie. All subsequent films in the series were made with Craven's involvement.

In the late s, Wes Craven was a struggling filmmaker known for only one thing: a little horror flick called The Last House on the Left Though he was itching to branch out and make other kinds of movies, he could only find financing for horror films, so he agreed to make a movie about a group of hill people savaging a vacationing family. Though he may not have been in a hurry to admit it, Craven found that he was really good at scaring people. Craven heard the story of the Bean clan, and noted that the road near where they lived was believed to be haunted because people kept disappearing while traveling on it. He adapted the story to instead be about a group of wild people in the American West, and The Hills Have Eyes was born. He suggested that Craven set the film in the desert, and Craven began to craft the screenplay. Budget was also a concern, so Craven structured the film to feature a relatively small cast and very few locations. According to Craven, they simply found the spider on the road during shooting, put it in a terrarium, and decided to add it into the film.
