Before it descends into dull sadism and general incoherence in its third act, Turistas is a mostly effective exploitation picture, the kind...

Turistas is not a slasher film -- not conventionally. Released by Fox's new teen division, it's the latest aquatic titillation from John...

TV Guide

By Ken Fox
The cast is unusually good for this sort of film, which only makes the poor execution more regrettable.
Full Review


By James Berardinelli
Starts out as an effective little horror movie before devolving into an incoherent mess during its final 30 minutes.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
The movie, with the exception of that lone squirmy surgery scene, is "Hostel" without sadism, thrills, or funky severed-limb F/X. It...

The Hollywood Reporter

It all begins to fall apart around the midway point, before completely unraveling into a confused, murky mess.

These people are so stupid that they make us think, well, wait a second: Maybe those livers and kidneys could be put to better use.

I sort of expected more

By MooVeeLover
Was a bit disappointed......




By cvjade
The movie itself was ok, filmed in a beautiful location with a decent plot line...but I felt like it was a big lead up to the five minute climax of the movie, and then it was just over. It definitely...

Hey, I'm all for pushing the limits on what media is able to tell for a story, and all for R rated movies, and naughty good fun. But, these kinds of movies promote nothing of any worthwhile...

Gore it is not

By sksheppe
Definately not full of gore. Very entertaining with lots of beautiful scenery (not just the actors either). The whole concept of the movie wasn't totally given away in the first 10 min of the movie...


By etross
Action filled from beginning to end. Lots of unexpected events that blended into the next segment....


By geri69
I expected a whole lot more action. It was an okay movie. I'm glad I saw it but its not one to add to my collection....

very interesting

By renee711
the movie wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be. It was worth watching once. It definately makes you think twice before you want to travel to a country if you don't know their language...

Not as good as I had hoped...

By jackiexstarr
"Turistas" was definitely not the worst movie I've ever seen...but it was nothing like what I thought it would be. My friend Joe and I went on opening night expecting to see the kind of gore and...

A suprisingly effective little thriller.

By coredango
Most of the reviews I am reading for Turistas have been pretty terrible. I was not expecting this movie to be as good as it was. This is not a repeat of the aimless and gory Hostel but is far more...
