Is 'The Ruins' as scary as it looks?

Posted on

I haven’t read The Ruins, Scott Smith’s best-selling novel, but watching the trailer (below) for the April movie, I understand what Gillian Flynn says in her review: “Reading Scott Smith is like having a rope tied firmly round yourmiddle, as you’re pulled on protesting tiptoes toward a door markedDOOM. The horror is in plain sight; there is no doubt things will end badly — the signs are everywhere.”

Should I be as frightened of this film as I am? And for those of you who have read the novel, does it look like the movie will do it justice?
