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 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.

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.
I just keep thinking about how far we must be from a hospital. You know, with doctors who operate instead of amputate?
Would you slow the fuck down!

Why the bad rating ???
I almost was not going to see this movie because it was giving such a bad rating by so many.
I don't know why though. I watched the movie and it was very very good.
It had a great story line that was believable and made it more creepy. When something exciting was not happening it had great visuals of Brazil. It had some intense scenes also. It also had a lot of shocking parts u would not expect. I really liked this movie. Better then hostel definitely.
It shouldn't have a bad rating. At least should have a 7 or 8. Worth watching.
