Terrific modern horror flick is a grim little number. Harrowing and clever.
very awesome movie like watching it over and over but the last thing I couldn't figure out was how did the ruin get into her body???? Awesome scary MOVIE
Average. The first half is not bad but the rest is more gory than scary.
I wish I could have the last hour and a half of my life back.
WOW!!! GREAT!!!! AWESOME!!! So unexpected!!! I really loved it!! I'm scared of plants now!!!
I thought this movies was awesome, I even went out and got the DVD. You must like blood and gore movies though.
I thought that all four actors gave a fabulous performance. Laura should get an Oscar for her performance.
i thought it was worth the rental for a bit of a creepy, survivalist type of movie.
A strange, non-campy take on killer plants. Phenomenal!
good movie, but i couldnt help but see the one comment about some dad who brought there 14 year old son to this movie....LOL u really fail at parenting
Explain to me how having vines grow out of a person is scary. This movie was comical, and even then it was boring.
Excellent movie. Loved the gore and the grossness. Mind you, I also loved the 'Hostel' movies, so if you don't like the gore, don't go for it. Excellent! Great job!
It's all a matter of taste. Personally really liked it. Everything can be imporved, but thought it was great.
Within the first half hour we were all feeling nauseous, and I mean sick to our stomachs. I had expected a "Mummy" type movie, as in ancient Aztec spirits and a curse and a means to defeat the curse, etc. but this was a gorefest. There was blood and exposed muscle and bone and tissue. My 14 year old son kept saying "Let's leave, I have to leave!" so finally we left the theatre. My 16 year old daughter stayed to watch to the end. My son made it to just outside the theatre doors then he had to sit down with his head between his legs. He felt like he was going to faint and throw up at the same time; his face was drained and chalk white. I helped him out to the car and drove him home. It
The movie succeeded in making me uneasy. I remained 'in the story' because nothing was explained to a point where I began to question it. This movie is worth seeing for Laura Ramsey . She was responsible for the majority of the suspense, unease and emotion. The movie would have been nearly unwatchable without her but she also has the majority of the screen time. (worth seeing at a Matinee)
I plan to see the movie tonight... I just finished the book, and it was amazing. For those of you who think it's a weak plot, try reading the book; it's a lot more difficult to express and convince people of this sort of concept through film than it is in a novel. I don't expect the movie to be as good as the book, but I'm looking forward to some wicked scenes.
If you are a fan of raw human suffering, go see this movie. If you would prefer some mystery to the grotesquery in your films, and this does not include barely seeing the "monster", don't go see this movie. I am not an easy irked person, but this movie was on par with Hostel for foulness.
this is a pathetic excuse for a movie. Not scary ,ridiculous plot, boring and stupid.
The content of this movie is alright but the end is not well done thats why I give 4 star
Terrible.........I'd rather be forced to listen to 20 Slim Whitman tunes.
One of the worst movies I have seen in a very long time. Basically it's a movie about 5 people trapped on top of a hill. No background story, no explanations, no nothing. Terrible plot, even worst story. Save your money, this movie isn't even worth renting!
Very disappointing! Only good if you like watching an hour of excuses for creating gore.
The title says it all about this movie. Your day will be in "RUINS" is you waste time and money on this movie.
Great acting, great gore, and an awesome plot.
I seen this movie last night and im still thinking about how great it was!It doesnt explain to much about the ruins but that doesnt matter!It has an amazing cast!Amazing script and amazing suspense!The gore scenes are pretty disturbing to!this one definitely kept me on the edge of my scene!I left this movie amazed!Id say this is the best horror movie period so far!5 STARS HANDS DOWN!
Interesting movie, a head above the rest of it's type. It is not particularly scary - you won't be jumping out of your seat, but it is intense. You do relate to the characters and some scenes leave you biting your knuckles and wincing at the disturbing sights. Overall feeling is that which you get when driving by and witnessing some particularly horrific car accident or a house burning down next door. The "monster" of the movie is barely present, the horror is the situation that the city-slickers find themselves in, alone in the unknown. THE RUINS starts and ends rather fast, and you're left thinking: Premise aside, could that happen to me? Best line: "Four American tourists don't just dis
There comes a "stupid" factor in all horror movies.In the ruins it comes later than in most of this type of movie.Overall much better than Cloverfield for a B movie.
This movie was fantastic! I saw it lastnight and was impressed!! I would not mind seeing this movie a second time. It keeps you at the edge of your seat the whole time! I LOVE IT.
It has its moments but it's more of a DVD rental; male teens will be happy. The motives of the Munich guy is a bit mis-leading.
It was OK. I liked the story but I found it draged a little. I expected to see more activity inside to ruins not just on top. It could have been so much more, but they lazed out!
The only scary thing about this movie was the fact that it was actually made. Does no-one know what a 'horror' movie is anymore?
SAVE YOUR MONEY! You would rather have a root canal than watch this movie!
Great horror film and it was so well done.
That was the worst movie i've seen in a very long time. It was gory. That's fine. But I would at least like to know the story behind the ruins and why they were the way they are. No plot. Two thumbs down.
it was really bad, gross, this girl was like cutting her flesh off her leg and then she stabs her friend whos trying to help her and all she says is : "SORRY" and then she continues to cut her flesh off. VERY BAD!
