We gave it a C-

Former fashion photographer Carter Smith exchanges beauties for a beast — in this case, a nefarious…something (no spoilers here!) that lurks deep in the jungles of Mexico, methodically picking off a clutch of unfortunate American tourists that includes actors Jena Malone (Into the Wild) and Shawn Ashmore (X-Men). Based on a seriously scary best-selling book by Scott Smith (who also penned the novel-turned-film A Simple Plan). (April 4)
