This is just a predictable slice of slasher porn set in an exotic locale.
December 2, 2006
Touted as the first American production to be shot entirely in Brazil, Turistas may well be the last, if the country cares at all about its image.

[Director] Stockwell delivers too little of the dread and titillation this genre prescribes.
June 10, 2015
An unpleasant horror thriller about revolting thrill-seeking tourists in Brazil.
August 12, 2014
Under its glossy exterior and claims to be an extreme version, this is a generic and surprisingly tame horror offering.
November 3, 2012
Paradise Lost is an undemanding thriller with little in the way of invention and not much going on other than some impressive scenery and a few sweet racks.

Turistas is a beautifully shot tale of tropical terror that starts building an ominous vibe early on, but never really turns into a full-fledged gross-out like Hostel. Except for that one part.

Vacation from hell isn't for the faint of stomach.
May 5, 2008
With a plot Frankensteined from the remains of "Hostel", "The Descent" and "Wolf Creek", "Turistas" was clearly never going to be on anyone's 10 best list.

Brazil's tourist industry gets a bad rap in this horror-lite shocker that might just leave you rooting for the bad guy.
March 26, 2007
contains itself in insufferable artificiality
March 25, 2007
There are 10 deleted scenes (more character development, which is nice), and an alternate ending which isn't quite as good as the one in the theatrical release (but is still interesting to see).
March 24, 2007
It's a film that's more likely to leave you confused and angry than frightened or inspired that something positive is happening in the horror genre.
March 21, 2007
Turistas is a very vanilla experience. It's just kind of there. While not terrible, it's definitely one of the most disappointing movies of 2006.

Merece ser ignorado por ser péssimo, não por ser uma "visão preconceituosa" do Brasil.
