Monster Mondays pick a ghoulie that regularly haunts horror cinema. Today’s Daily Double: menacing plants!
If, on the other hand, you crave some plant-based bio-horror that hits you like a punch in the gut and then keeps punching, check out this gruesome, fascinating, and wildly underrated horror flick. The plot is simple: Four arrogant American tourists wander into a Mexican rainforest only to discover an ancient ruins covered in vines. Big deal, right? Well, these vines are absolutely carnivorous and they really seem to enjoy raw meat… pulled right from the bone. You get the point. Based on the equally disturbing novel by Scott Smith (A Simple Plan), The Ruins didn’t exactly invade the box office, but it’s still freaking out horror fans ten years after its release. And fair warning: This flick is about as wildly gory as studio releases get.
