Bad acting, poor story, poor effects, and did I mention BAD acting.
Very good movie. A nice change from the recent run of Crazy Killer/Torture movies.
I'm giving "The Ruins" a mild recomendition as a alternative to the horrible "Pron Night." Sure it had a few bad scenes, but it's best to see this horror film than to waste your time with that other film. A group of young people found a temple in Mexico that was run by man-eating plants and to make things worse, the resident won't let them leave. they had to stay there until they're dead. Yeah, it has some intense moments, doesn't every horror film had intense moments, but the film had paid off. There's an group of unknown performers in this movie, but you will have to know only one and that is Jena Malone. Ten years years ago she made an impression on me in the 1998 movie "A Solider's Daughter Never Cries." Now ten years later, her performance has touched me again. Her persence may have helped this movie. I like in enough to give it a mild recomendition.
