The Ruins

A Mexican vacation takes a turn for the violently gruesome when two couples take a detour to explore ancient Mayan ruins and find an armed group of natives preventing them from leaving. Forced to stay atop a pyramid structure, they soon discover the vines encircling them are of the flesh-eating variety... Scott B Smith ('A Simple Plan') adapted his sophomore novel and director Carter Smith plays it surprisingly straight, definitely going for scares, not laughs. Solid performances and a hefty helping of gore keep the suspense on high in this nerve-jangling horror thriller. Jonathan Tucker, Jena Malone, Shawn Ashmore, and Laura Ramsey star. Ben Stiller (a friend of the author) was one of the producers.
