Rising star Josh Duhamel (TV's Las Vegas) leads a group of young backpackers who find themselves stranded on a remote Brazilian beach, an exotic paradise with warm sunshine, cool ocean breezes, and plenty of hot bodies. But, after a night of partying, the wayward turistas are drugged and robbed, and their dream vacation becomes a gruesome nightmare. Trapped and desperate, the vulnerable travelers are lured deep into the menacing jungle and beyond, where a dark and twisted fate too terrifying to imagine awaits.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Beautiful scenery and cinematography can't save Turistas from its wooden acting and stale and predictable plot.

Vacation from hell isn't for the faint of stomach.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this torturous (literally and figuratively) horror movie is absolutely not for kids. It's full of gross-out violence -- the sort characterized by yucky wounds and bloody body parts. Violent acts include a stick in the eye, a hook in a foot, shooting, knifing, and surgery (depicted here as sadistic). The insidious motive for the murders is organ harvesting, described in some detail as a problem of class/nation inequities and depicted brutally. Characters engage in reckless sexual pursuits, though the one couple who actually have sex (off camera) use a condom. Characters drink, smoke cigarettes and pot, and are drugged by murderous villains. Language is pretty much incessant, including repetitive uses of "f--k."
