New Red Band Trailer for The Ruins

I've heard from trusted friends that The Ruins is going to be a pretty awesome and gruesome horror flick, but so far the first trailer didn't impress me that much. I'm still holding out expecting there to be something else to convince me that it's going to be downright awesome and this is, sort of, it. A red band (you've been warned) trailer has debuted and it's full of lots of blood but nothing too excessive. If you're at all a horror fan or just waiting for one of the first good genre flicks of the year, The Ruins may be it. Check out the new red band trailer below.

Im a big fan of horror movies and this looks like it will be a good film to watch nothing groundbreaking but just a fun, scary movie to watch.

I think the only good thing about that trailer were the unintentionally hilarious lines "it's inside me" and "I can feel it moving".

I liked the narrator. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure he's not in the movie. Vic

I thought that was the worst trailer man voice in a loooong time... this movie looks boring and silly

"You know what they used to do here?" - "you don‘t wanna know" hilarious too Guess they found a new excuse to kill some backpackers.

This is one of the first horror books that I read in a long time that scared me. I can't really tell by the trailer so far if they are following the book, but if they do it will be terrifying.

Perhaps I've been desensitized but what was Red band about that trailler?

Yea what Heckle said. What was so Red Band about it?? It looks like a PG-13 movie to me. I know the story of The Ruins, but I am still sort of,....eh...whatever.

The trailer still doesn't do it for me, but the poster is awesome! There hasn't been a great horror movie recently since The Descent.

...looks like a cross between LOST and Apocalypto... ...It's LOST-a-lypto... I have to agree that the "red bandedness" of that trailer must be seriously called into question. Maybe we could get Arlen Specter to start an investigation; he's got nothing else to do anyway...

This book was awful.....poorly written with many hanging storylines that went nowhere. Great idea that was excuted with the deft ability of a hack......hopefully the movie is better.

It truly upsets me that so many of you are quick to call people Hacks, No Good filmmakers/Writers/Directors. When YOU have done nothing in the Film industry at there level and it seems that you are just nobodys that need to critisize someone elses work to make yourself feel inportant. This is pertaining to ALL the film reviews, or trailers. Why if you all have such great ideas and know it can be done better stop just talking and make a full length feture film to distribute to the public. until you have a Oscar, Blockbuster, Best Seller under your belt mabye everyone shouldent be so quick to call others Hacks.

I just watched the movie i didnt even know there was a book......it had a fairly good story line...it wasnt overal scary or gorey...but leaves with a distubed feeling .makes you shudder a little...i certainly dont quite look at plants the same....even if its not your forte i would definatly recomend seeing at least just once for the hell of it...very well done
