Among the better movies from the recent batch of extreme/torture horror, it's a shame that Turistas is probably destined forever to live in the shadows of the "Hostel" series, because it's significantly better than either installment that Hostel has yet produced. Following an unmistakably similar plot as the first "Hostel" - although I think both movies started production at about the same time and this one just took longer to finish - "Turistas" finds (as does its better-known peer) a group of vacationers travelling to an exotic hot spot (in this case Brazil) for a fun-filled getaway, only to run afoul of a local group of brutal, torture-minded psychopaths. The main differences are, I guess, rather subjective. Personally, I thought Turistas was scarier and sexier than Hostel, and had more likable protagonists and more interesting villains. In the first half, there's little overtly horror movie-ish about the film: the main group is prevented from going to their upper-scale tourist destination because of a bus mishap, and ends up at a more off-the-main-path destination, a small village by the beach without the big hotels from tourist brochures, but with festive, smaller-scale, attractions - open air beach bars, big evening bonfire parties, all that kind of thing. They end up making friends with some fellow travellers and with the locals, but some of those locals have a keen interest in the newcomers that doesn't seem to be on the up and up. Come the next day, the vacationers find they've been robbed and the village starts to seem less than friendly, so, with the help of a local they've befriended, head off towards less threatening envirorns, travelling through a swath of rainforest on what turns out to be a very ill-fated trek.Read more ›

This movie is reminiscent of the movie HOSTEL only without as much gore. As a serious horror fan, I thoroughly enjoyed Hostel but every once in a while you need an intense thriller that focuses more on the tension of the situation than just blood and guts. This movie is that more tense/ less gore "Hostel". The themes are similar-- American/European tourists going on vacation to a foreign exotic country where they get way more than they bargained for when they fall into the sinister hands of a group of locals with other inhumane plans.... I thoroughly enjoyed the movie; the acting was pretty decent, nothing overtly cheesy and their responses and interactions were believable. I could realistically believe that this storyline could have actually taken place. The plot was nothing overly imagined nor too far fetched in my opinion. The characters were intriguing to watch-- likable personalities and sensual hard bodies *smiles*... I think this movie was good enough to have caught it on the bigs screen but popping it into your DVD player on a lazy Saturday is a good bet also. Overall a good "vacationers in danger" thriller.

I was suprised to find that this movie was pretty decent. The cast of characters were unsurprisingly one dimensional with very little to go on, such as perhaps understanding any single motivation. The acting is strictly mediocre, with some gaping holes in plot and logic. Nonetheless the film held my attention and was far superior to some of it's peers of late. The story itself is rather ludicrous, but looking past that, the arch of the film is interesting and the direction of the plot is somewhat unique in that it sets itself apart from its counterparts by breaking away from a few of the standard genre cliches. I was impressed by the action sequences, and the film get's huge bonus points for the locales and general atmosphere. I also of course love the fact that the movie is wonderful exploitative as far as making sweeping and hugely exagerated statements about Brazil and American tourists. It reminded me of some of the better 70's exploitation film (mainly Italian cannibal fair) in that it offers up some gruesome deaths in gorgeous exotic settings and plays on stereotypes and urban lore, to maximum effect. Not as smart as Hostel, but not as banal as Wolf Creek, this lands somewhere in the middle.

This is a true horror movie, but with wicked humans being the source of the horror. The unrated version has upper body nudity, if that is important to you, but the suspense removed the impact of all the bikini clad women for me because you could tell that something was coming and these people were not exercising any kind of common sense and kept getting in deeper instead of being prudent. It takes place in Brazil. I have lived in South America for several years in troubled and dangerous places, and these tourists missed all the signs until it was too late. The ugly part of the last half of the movie is sufficiently horrible that I fast forwarded through a lot of it. The ending is satisfactory, but overall the movie left a bad taste in my mouth, even though the acting was good and several of the characters were good people, though in a terrible life or death situation. The movie does make a moral statement that is impossible to miss. The really chilling thing is that the villains in this movie made me understand that things like this really probably do occur in parts of the world, not necessarily just in Brasil either (Latin spelling of Brazil uses an s.) In retrospect, I have concluded that the "Unrated" rating is more about the horror than the partial nudity. Compare it to "Apocalypse Now" but only with tourists in a foreign country. It ought to be required viewing for all 20-somethings planning to go carouse in third world countries. I most definitely wouldn't go without someone who spoke the native language and was proven trustworthy from a trustworthy source (as in like local missionaries). This movie has real horror and expect it to leave a bad taste in your mouth; still, overall, I am glad I bought it because it made me really think about what I would have done in that type of situation. I would definitely have been the teetotaler! And for that I probably would have been the first to be killed.
