The Carnivorous Vines are the main antagonist of the 2006 American horror film The Ruins.
Unlike all other plants, these vines are cunning, intelligent predators that inhabit an abandoned Mayan temple and kill those who enter, particularly four tourists: Jeff, Eric, Amy, and Stacy.
The vines appear as typical green vines of indeterminable length and 3-5 pronged, ivy-like leaves.
Powers and Abilities
The Carnivorous Vines possess the following powers and abilities:
- Burrowing into human bodies
- Mimicking cell phones and human voices
The vines succeed in killing all of the film's major characters and continue to reside in the temple.
- An alternate ending to the film exists in which the carnivorous vines make it back to civilization, growing in the graveyard in which Amy's body was buried.
