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.
While traveling on vacation through the country of Northeastern of Brazil by bus, the American Alex Trubituan, his sister Bea Tribituan and their friend Amy Harrington meet the also foreigners Pru Stagler, Finn Davies and Liam Kuller after an accident with their bus. They follow a track through the woods and find a hidden paradisiacal beach. They decide to stay in the place drinking beer and dancing funk and parting with the locals and they meet the amicable Brazilian teenager Kiko. They are drugged with "Boa Noite, Cinderela" (Ruffies, literal translation: "Good Night, Cinderella" - a trick used by smalltime crooks to steal naive people) and when they wake up, they are practically naked, with all their belongings, clothes, money, jewels, passports, backpacks etc. stolen.

During the swimming scene after Alex is shot escaping from Zamora, you can clearly see no blood or wound of any kind on either of his hands. After they leave the water, he bandages a wound to his left hand. See more »

Are you having fun?
Am I the only one having a problem with this?
I don't know, I guess I'm used to it.

Would you slow the fuck down!

To be upfront and fair, I love horror films: everything from campy, cheaply-made indie stuff to slick, high-budget ones. All I ask is you give me not-so-much as a good story, although that would help but some kind of purpose as to why I'm there to see this film. As you can see, I almost never write a comment or review. But I was almost obligated to do it here because I need to vent knowing that I'm not going to get my money back for the admission and popcorn and coke. Turistas was absolutely DREADFUL. Folks, there are no spoilers to this film because the previews and commercials pretty much did the job. And to Josh Duhamel: stick to television, buddy because you have no big-screen charisma. I for one hopes this movie tanks in it's first week so the idiots who greenlighted this crap will lose their jobs. That's it.
