The Ruins

The Story:
Four American friends on vacation in Cancun, Mexico, meet a German tourist that persuades them to join his hunt for his younger brother, who was last seen with his girlfriend near some mysterious ruins.

My Thoughts:
I loved this movie. It was scary, gory, and very tense. I really had no idea what kind of horror was waiting for them in the ruins. I never read the book, so I was just as shocked as they were. The movie has some OMFG cringe moments, that are worse than anything in "Hostel". They are worse because these characters are more developed and you care more about them.

This movie definitely reaffirms my belief that you should ever leave the United States BAD THINGS will happen to you. Of course bad things also happen when you go anywhere isolated in the U.S., so your best bet is to stay in the city, in a bunker.
