Synopsis:

A group of young backpackers 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 from which there is no awakening. 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.

Beautiful women, pristine beaches, exotic drinks and partying well into the night...sounds like the ideal getaway, but for a young group of adventurous travelers - it becomes a vacation into hell! An intense, unflinching tale of escalating suspense that overcomes a group of American tourists, Turistas stamps your passport to terror on DVD March 27th from Fox Home Entertainment. A worst-case-scenario of a trip gone bad for world travelers and a cautionary tale for those who think the entire world is their playground, Turistas is brutally shocking, graphically violent and disturbingly very real as it follows a group of hapless young travelers whose seemingly blissful beach vacation goes from bad to worse after a bus accident maroons them in a remote Brazilian beach town, where they slowly discover that the lush setting is concealing a darker, unsettling secret.

The first American film production to shoot entirely in the country of Brazil, Turistas was directed by John Stockwell (Into the Blue) and boasts an impressive cast of Hollywood's hottest up-and-coming stars, including Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), Melissa George (The Amityville Horror), Olivia Wilde (The O.C.) and Desmond Askew (The Hills Have Eyes). Available on a single disc in its heart-stopping original theatrical cut along with a new graphic Unrated version, the Turistas DVD also includes audio commentary by Stockwell, an alternate ending, ten deleted scenes, in-depth featurettes on the gory effects and the underwater shooting and more. Turistas will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada, plus also available on Blu-ray Disc (BD) on April 17th priced at $39.98 U.S. / $49.98 Canada.
