A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they, along with a fellow tourist embark on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle, where something evil lives among the ruins.
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
While on vacation in a resort in Mexico, the Americans Jeff, his girlfriend Amy, her best friend Stacy and her boyfriend Eric befriend the German Mathias in the swimming pool. Mathias invites the group to visit the ruins of a Mayan temple with his Greek friend Dimitri in an archaeological field where his brother Henrich and his girlfriend are camped eighteen kilometers from the resort. They hire an old taxi and when they reach the spot, they are surrounded by Mayan villagers armed of revolvers, rifles and bows-and-arrows that kill Dimitri and do not allow the group to leave the place. They climb a construction covered of creepers with red flowers, and remain under siege of the locals. When they hear a cell phone in the bottom of a well, Mathias decides to seek the apparatus using a rope that breaks and he has a serious accident breaking his back. Amy and Stacy go to the bottom of the mine to rescue Mathias and they find many corpses covered by the climbing plants; further, they ... Written by

The scene in which Mathias's amputated legs are dragged away by the vines was the first scene given to the visual effects crew, and the last to be finished by them. See more »
Before amputating Mathias' legs, Jeff states that he is at risk of septicemia, which is, "an infection, usually of the bone." Septicaemia is, by definition, an infection of the blood and has nothing to do with bones. See more »

Worst movie ever. Not at all good, scary, or even interesting. Some vines are "alive". Wow. 91 minutes of pure awfulness. This movie starts out as a typical "Hostle" type flick with some friends on vacation in some new environment. They meet some new friends who are heading out for an adventure, so they all join up. This puts us at the 45 minute mark. What happens next could have been written by a 5th grader. A spooky temple appears beyond the trees, and some locals come out to "welcome" the visitors. After a lot of unwatchable nonsense, we find out that our time has been wasted - because the end of the movie comes and goes - without explanation. Terrible. I can't say that enough. I'm shocked this has a 6.5 rating as of 09/02/2008.
