I See The Ruins (And The Ruins See Me)

Finally! I've been waiting for these. BD has got the first trio of stills from The Ruins, Carter Smith's adaptation of Scott Smith's entertainingly terrifying book, which I've dutifully swiped and posted... right here:

What weird is these stills look EXACTLY like the images I'd had in my head while reading the book. I mean, maybe it's not that weird, since all we're seeing is a patch of dirt and a stone-wall and... something green... but really that's a huge chunk of the location for the story and these pics, and these actors, look PERFECT.

The Ruins stars Jena Malone, Jonathan Tucker, Shawn Ashmore and Laura Ramsey as four friends backpacking in Mexico who end up someplace they don't want to be... perhaps there are ruins there? Perhaps something evil within the ruins? Who's to say? Not me! Except, ya know, every time I've posted on the movie and book in the past. Ahem.

Anyway, the flick comes out on April 11th. Maybe there'll be a trailer soon...?

I loved, loved the book!! Can't wait for the movie, though I am sad that the plants won't "talk" in the film. I thought it was eerie and fun.

And I these photos are what I thought the film should look like too!
