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.
In August 2009, the British Board of Film Classification originally classified this film as '18', meaning that no one in the UK under 18 years of age would be able to see it. E1 Films (the UK distributor) asked the BBFC to reconsider, and in a rare move, it decided to pass the film uncut at the lower '15' category instead. See more »

A group of sorority sisters find themselves the target of a maniacal killer in retaliation for their involvement in a prank gone wrong on one of their friends and must survive the attacks before they're all killed off.
A lot better remake than initially expected, as it appears to be a glossy-looking, safe slasher that intends to tease rather than deliver, ably demonstrated by the rather low amount of nudity and sleaze offered despite their being not only one but two drunken college parties and more opportunities spread throughout the running time that would've been nice to show off a little more than it did, but also applying to the gore as well with it's rather lame-looking CGI bloodspurts that aren't nearly as much as what would've been unleashed had the kill actually gone down as it should've, yet the stalking in here is rather good with numerous chilling spots, the finale chasing has plenty of action and a nice recurrence of the old burning-down-the-house spirit so common in the Corman/Poe classics and a rather novel killer identity revelation that works really well. Could've been a lot better, but it's still really good as is.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity, a mild sex scene and drug use
