THEY SAY

Based on the terrifying best-seller by Scott Smith, The Ruins follows a group of friends who become entangled in a brutal struggle for survival after visiting a remote archaeological dig in the Mexican jungle where they discover something deadly living among the ruins. The Ruins stars Jonathan Tucker (The Black Donnellys), Jena Malone (Pride and Prejudice), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men: The Last Stand), Laura Ramsey (She's the Man) and Joe Anderson (Across the Universe).

WE SAY

Stephen King has admitted to liking this novel, but readers who posted product reviews at Amazon.com aren’t as enthusiastic, saying that while the book is well-written, the characters are on the bland side and the movie’s monster (which lends it its sci-fi fantasy element) is fairly ridiculous. Which makes it perfect for a Hollywood big screen adaptation then . . .
