Turistas (2006)

Director: John Stockwell

Starring: Josh Duhamel, Melissa George, Olivia Wilde, Desmond Askew, Beau Garrett, Max Brown, Agles Steib, Miguel Lunardi, Jorge So, Cristiani Aparecida

More info: IMDb 

Tagline: Go Home.

Plot: A group of young backpackers' vacation turns sour when a bus accident leaves them marooned in a remote Brazilian rural area that holds an ominous secret.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

I was really surprised at how good this turned out.  The kids aren't annoying and stuck up.  Movies like this are usually filled with assholes that I want dead right from the start.  It doesn't take long (the half hour wait isn't bad at all) before the shit hits the fan and what glorious shit it is!  Slung at 90 miles an hour with the wind to your back. All I have to say is machetes should be in every horror movie.  That shit freaks me out and there's a great slice to a hand in this one.  I love the jungle setting and I really dig the motives of the bad guys.  This is one of the better horror flicks that's come out in the past few years.  Very nice.
