The Ruins


(IMDb page)

Director: Carter Smith
Release: April 4, 2008
Rating: Rated R for strong violence and gruesome images, language, some sexuality and nudity
Starring: Jonathan Tucker, Jena Malone, Shawn Ashmore, Laura Ramsey, and Joe Anderson



Based on the best-selling novel by Scott Smith, The Ruins follows four Americans vacationing in Mexico (Jeff, Amy, Eric, and Stacy), a German tourist (Mathias), and a Greek tourist (Pablo). The group goes in search of Mathias' brother (Henrich) who has traveled to the site of an archaeological dig. Henrich left Mathias a map to his whereabouts, and it ultimately leads the group to an ancient Mayan temple. HORROR ENSUES.




OK, so this movie is gonna be fifty different kinds of awesome. Not even joking. The trailer is sort of misleading about the whole idea of them unleashing a curse. Anyway, the book was great, and it's a lot more fun if you stay unspoiled as to what exactly the "horror" that "ensues" is.



Here are some quotes stolen from the review given by Bloody-Disgusting:

"...some of the most disturbing, gut-wrenching and cringe-inducing sequences in a long, long time. It’s as intense as it is bloody and violent."

"RUINS carries some of the most memorable horror scenes caught on film in a long time, which was proven by the amount of walkouts."

"Right off the bat my first thought was, 'not another TURISTAS or HOSTEL,' thankfully it isn’t. THE RUINS has turned over a new leaf in horror and will get inside even the thickest of horror fans' skin."



And here are a couple quotes from the Shock Till You Drop review:

"It's a true original treat for horror fans sluggishly wading through derivative remake after remake."

"Like its source material, 'The Ruins' is outlandishly disgusting. And accomplished in broad daylight, the violence takes on an uncomforting stark realism."



And yes, I basically stole Ryan's movie-topic layout.
