If you fancy a goofy little thrill that's a ray of sunshine compared to the usual glut of gloomy slasher flicks and tawdry torture pornos, The Ruins is just what the doctor ordered.

Watchable killer-plant horror movie.

If it could happen to these kids, smart and beautiful, then it sure as shit is going to happen to me.

Tenso, bem montado e dirigido com segurança e inteligência por Carter (que também extrai boas atuações de seu pequeno elenco), o filme consegue o impossível: transformar plantas assassinas em algo assustador.

It had me squirming, and the sheer anarchy and amoral chaos involved was refreshing.

Enjoyable, well made and genuinely creepy horror flick that transcends its ridiculous premise thanks to a strong script, some sure-handed direction and superb performances from a talented young cast.

Not just if you're a horror fan but also if you enjoy a well fashioned, slimy yarn to get wrapped up in.

I enjoyed most of the picture, particularly its ending, which much like the rest of the movie, remained pretty dark and pessimistic.

... it's only after you've left the theater that you realize just how totally, utterly ludicrous the movie really is.

It's the kind of film that Sam Raimi might have directed 20 years ago, except that Carter Smith plays it straight, even though he seems to assume the audience won't.

This movie wasn't screened for critics. That's too bad, because this movie was surprisingly well done.

Just when you thought that a horror/thriller movie couldn't get more violent and gruesome; think again!

It may be just another white-kids-get-killed chiller, but it's a solidly made white-kids-get-killed chiller; nothing new, yet expertly put together.

THE RUINS has turned over a new leaf in horror and will get inside even the thickest of horror fans' skin.

Gore hounds will definitely be pleased as The Ruins boasts some of the most sickening blood and guts this side of snuff films.

Loved the book, enjoyed the movie. Jonathan Tucker ably leads a cast of uninteresting co-stars.

These are the beautiful people, and by the end of The Ruins we'll have spent a lot of time watching them go downhill.

While The Ruins has virtually no plot, the characters aren't cardboard cutouts and if you're looking for a cringe-inducing horror movie you may actually enjoy it.
