Hillside Cannibals is a 2006 American horror film directed by Leigh Scott and produced by The Asylum. The film is a mockbuster of the film The Hills Have Eyes, another film released around the same month, but its plot also incorporates elements from other films, including Cannibal Holocaust, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and House of 1000 Corpses.
In the year 1606, Sawney Bean (Leigh Scott), a ruthless psychopath, earned a notoriety as the world's most brutal serial killer, predating Jack the Ripper and Bloody Bill by several hundred years. In life, Sawney was a cannibal, who captured his victims and literally butchered them, feasting on their corpses afterwards.
His practices are continued in the modern day by his in-bred descendants, who dwell in vast caves on the coast and feed on the flesh of passers-by, as a group of teenagers soon discover whilst exploring the steep cliff-face where Sawney's descendants dwell in search of flesh.

Dread Central heavily panned Hillside Cannibal, commenting that they found the film so unenjoyable that getting "stupid drunk" through a proposed drinking game "is probably the best way to get through this ordeal." HorrorTalk also heavily criticized the movie, as they felt that the film had several flaws that were due to lazy film making and that the script was "just terrible".

- The Cottage - A similar film released in 2008
- Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill - Another horror film by The Asylum based on a real-life killer, in this case, William "Bloody Bill" Anderson.
