    A terrifying horror triller about human organ trafficking in Brazil. Several young americans run for their lives in the brazilian jungle.

    A pleasant surprise. The tension builds nicely, the acting is decent, the dialogue believable (for a horror flick). I liked it better than Hostel and much much better than Saw III (or was it II)? Not quite as good as The Descent. The three female leads (Olivia W., Melissa G., Beau G.) are all amazingly gorgeous. People who see this film as racist or anti-Brazilian just need to chill out.

It's a B movie Horror flick!!! Get over it already. Expand

    This movie is filled with suffecent violence, gore and twits. But the bad acting and predictible plot make the film a large dissapointment. I have definitly seen better horror movies. The Descent was a far better foregin but english speaking film. This movie is also racist, depiticing all the blacks as violent savages.

  1. There's only one surgery scene, but it's the heart (and kidneys) of Turistas. The rest -- especially the incoherent action -- falls well below the mark set by the last Americans Abroad torture-porn picture, "Hostel."

    Turistas eventually bogs down in an underlit mess.
  3. The movie, with the exception of that lone squirmy surgery scene, is "Hostel" without sadism, thrills, or funky severed-limb F/X. It quickly turns into a very dull escape thriller.
