Seeking the sun, warm waters and sandy beaches of Mexico, two best friends Amy (Jena Malone) and Stacy (Laura Ramsey), bring along their very different boyfriends - focused med student Jeff (Jonathan Tucker) and free-spirited partier Eric (Shawn Ashmore) - with them on vacation.
As the group's trip nears its end, they decide to visit a remote archaeological dig deep in the Mexican jungle in hopes of seeing some ancient Mayan ruins. But when they arrive at the magnificent site, an unexpected event drives the frightened travellers to the top of the crumbling stone structure, where they confront hidden deadly horrors and engage in a brutal battle for survival.
Based on the best-selling novel from Academy AwardŽ-nominated screenwriter Scott Smith, THE RUINS is directed by Carter Smith and stars Jonathan Tucker, Jena Malone, Shawn Ashmore, Laura Ramsey and Joe Anderson.
