The Ruins Movie Review by Movie Addict (12/14/2008)

This movie had me during the opening credits when I saw that horribly contorted face. It kept my interest as I tried to figure out where it was heading. I really expected a Saw-type film, and got a huge surprise when it turned out to be a thriller with an edge I have not seen done before.
