The Ruins

Film, 2008

It seems like the book this movie was based on might have been very good; it has character subplots that develop over the course of the story, a spooky setting and maybe even some themes. But if they existed in the book they’re all completely fumbled here. And without any characterization, atmosphere or themes to speak of, all we’re left with is a torturous hour and a half of people gorily chopping each other up for no real logical reason. It is horrible to sit though, in every way imaginable.
