When a group of girlfriends on a bachelorette party in Mexico get stranded out in the desert, they find themselves seeking shelter in an abandoned shrine built by a deranged madman and his psychotic followers and slowly find themselves succumbing to the whims of the spiritual followers still residing there.
This turned out to be a pretty disappointing effort, mostly hurt by the fact that this one's so short it really can't get a whole lot in or explore the potential of it's ideas by it's brevity and extremely short amount of time actually at the location. The fact that the girls' out-on-the-town hijinks takes up the first thirty-forty minutes in a movie barely over an hour, which when coupled with the second subplot about the left-behind friend trying to rescue them, makes even less scenes in the location which compiles barely fifteen minutes of screen time, the majority of that coming from the rescue attempt at the end. That leaves us to see the results of what happened in the location but the desired actions, as the aftermath makes it look highly enjoyable had we seen it played out. With a weak back-story that's hardly explained and a decided lack of on-screen help from others beyond merely repeating the same thing over-and-over again, this one doesn't have a lot going for it.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and a mild sex scene.
