The Ruins

This film is based on Scott Smith's novel of the same name that has a cover quote from Stephen King stating it is "the best horror novel of the new century". Being a big Stephen King fan myself, that is mighty fine praise and almost as endearing to me as his declaration of Clive Barker to be "the future of horror". I have to admit to not having read this novel - yet - but must say the movie was very good. The premise is simple and straight-forward and you can feel yourself being entangled by the actors terror and desperation. I recommend this movie to any jaded horor fan who wants a good story that delivers the dreaded kick to the gut we have all been sorely missing of late.
