While critics could not get worked up over The Nativity Story, some are certainly passionate about the horror movie Turistas. For example, Manohla Dargis writes in the New York Times: "If stupidity were a crime, the nitwits in the cheap horror flick Turistas would be doing time in Attica." Chris Kaltenbach in the Baltimore Sun calls it "this study in knuckleheaded mayhem and exploitative, brain-dead filmmaking." Kyle Smith in the New York Post concludes his review by remarking, "Turistas has mastered the international language: stupidity." But Bob Longino in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution suggests that the film is not really meant to make sense. "Give Turistas the edgy, unnerving, graphically violent South American vacation movie full of sex-hungry young adults and horror, credit for knowing full well not only what kind of entertainment it is, but for delivering the goods," he writes. And Steven Rea in the Philadelphia Inquirer says that "it gallops along with a suspenseful, dead-on sense of dread."
