EXCL: Ruins poster!
I've said it before but it's worth saying again: "The Ruins" by Scott Smith is one of the most terrifying original books I've read in years. But don't take my word for it. Stephen King called it "simply the best suspense novel of the year" saying it will do "for vacations in Mexico what JAWS did for beach weekends on Long Island." OK before this turns into an infomercial, let's get to why we're here: THE RUINS movie.
It's a simple premise really: four American tourists and a friend head out to archaeological ruins in Mexico and well, things don't go very well. The movie hits theaters on April 4th and today Paramount is debuting both the poster and the new red-band trailer. We're proud to be able to bring you an exclusive look at the poster for the film, which as you can see hints at some doom for our turista friends (a second teaser poster for THE RUINS is available at Shock Till You Drop). After you gave upon the creepiness in the poster below, head over to the official RUINS website later today (approximately 3:00 EST) to check out the brand new red-band trailer and get really effed up (trailer online now!). At least now I have an excuse when my wife asks me to do weeding this spring. I'm not touching those vines!!
