New, like Brazilian food
9 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

...What a dumb summary... but it's true- this film is rather different from other movies. This one explores the country of Brazil in South America, where tourists are taken into, as said before, a "Hostel"-type situation.

As in "Hostel", it's all a matter of who to trust, whom not to, and what kind of things that people should be careful about when in foreign countries.

It's a new taste of horror, and I enjoyed the film. It's not a blockbuster, and, in my opinion, it doesn't overcome "Hostel" by a long shot, but it's certainly something to be proud of to say, "I've seen it."
