|Turistas (2006: Rated R)
A bunch of tourist hostel seeking youths travelling through the Brazilian jungles discover a beach paradise while awaiting a bus that never seems to arrive. Intoxicated and drugged they discover all their belongings, including identification, to be stripped from them, and find themselves in difficult positions. As they search for shelter, those who seem to be friends can only be questionned, as something dark, dreary, and dangerous awaits their futures. In fashion of “Hostel”, this film plays on an age-old urban legend. Rating: 4 stars out of 5. Viewed 12/10/06.
