Anyone who thinks this film is remarkably unremarkable may want to go back to watching mind-trash like 'Crank' or 'Saw' or 'Final Destination' - this film was well acted, well directed, and well laid out. The approach to 'less is more' works perfectly in a setting like the desert, and it allows he actors to really be the stars, not the usual North American FX team. I'm not usually a fan of subtitles, but this film was perfect for me... minimal dialogue to read, so anything said is important to the plot, not the usually mundane babbling characters that you cheer when they get killed off... no this film did the dialogue right.
If you want torture, gore, blood, and naked virgins - this is NOT the film to watch. If you want story, good solid action, intensity, and just enough creepy to be the icing on the cake... this is a GREAT FILM!
