The Ruins
The Ruins mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Stacy exits the tent before cutting herself with the knife, the rock walls behind her "shake" like they are a set or projection. It's odd.

Factual error: When Mathias is getting his legs cut off, he's raising his head and shoulders off the ground, although his back is broken.

Trivia: Throughout the film, the five characters on the Mayan structure walk around in thin clothing day and night. In reality, it was quite chilly; the director and crew wore jackets to shield them from the cold.

Jeff: People come from all over the world just to see these ruins, especially one that's not on the map. I'm not taking you to some tourist trap, honey. Don't you want to have some experience or something to shoot other than the beach, the pool, the beach, the pool?
Amy: Well, you're already dressed, so you might as well go without me.
Jeff: Hey, but I don't want to go without you.

Jeff: The police, our parents, the Greeks, somebody. Somebody is going to find us. We just have to be alive when they do.

Jeff: So what do you guys think: Ancient Mayan temple off the beaten path?
