Let's see if HOSTEL 2 can manage to live up to the very good original or if it's just another BS sequel. We have the moneyman Quentin Tarantino producing it and Eli Roth again writing and directing it. What could go wrong?

Uh, it's a BS sequel and that's being very generous. diablo.gif This movie is absolute suck and makes 90mins seem like 300mins.

First off, ignore the mentally-challenged movie critics who seemingly get paid to say totally ignorant and asinine stuff like "Hostel 2 is sadism for entertainment!" or "Eli Roth wants to direct a snuff film next." post-36326-1110185726.gif It's not anything like HOSTEL was in terms of violence, gore, sadism, whatever. This is a pretty tame gore flick by gore standards. I can see why some got hot and bothered over the first one...this? The only reason to get upset over this film is how bad it is, not because there is anything remotely as gross than the original.

If you saw the original, this one takes a similar path only it's 3 women running around Eastern Europe who fall into the "Elite Hunting Club." Unlike the first flick where the guys got to enjoy plenty of sex and drugs and the time of their lives, these 3 women can't get their party on too much because...well...uh...I'm not sure why not. It's not like the movie is full of lots of torture and mayhem. Oh wait, this one tries to develop the would-be torturers' characters a little more. Bad move here as it doesn't work at all. You care little for the victims or the torturers and the torture scenes are brief and lame. In other words, everything goes wrong.

I have to say this is one of the worst horror movies I have seen recently, right DOWN there with Hills Have Eyes 2 which was completely terrible. Maybe give HOSTEL 2 a limp 3 out of 10. Very poorly-executed story, actors/plot that no one could care less about and no payoff in the supposed torture/violent scenes. AVOID.furious.gif

It doesn't take a genius to see that this movie is going to disappear from theaters in a hurry because it's the summer blockbuster season and the movie happens to suck big-time. Maybe Tarantino will get a clue and try something original instead of a re-hash of genre remakes. Grindhouse was a big fat flop and I'd say Hostel 2 will also be too. Bleh.

Too bad. Although I'm not a big fan of gore films, I thought the first Hostel was actually very good. The scene where the hero escapes and is talking to one of the clients, unknowing who he is, just before he's about to torture a victim was classic.

With Quentin at the helm, I'm really surprised. dry.gif

I didn't really care for Hostel 2, either. I liked the concept of it, by attempting to show the guy who is supposed to be the "slaughter guy", but other than that...it was pretty lame. I was definitely hoping for a lot better of a movie, since I kept hearing it getting spammed all over the talk shows. Definitely not worth the price of admission for a theater, and possibly not worth the price of a rental (unless there's nothing else). It's barely worth the time to download it.

From what everyone here's said it looks like a rental, if that. I'm kinda disappointed, I was expecting this to be bigger and badder than the first sad.gif.
Looks like just badder haha.

Even if the first one hadn't been so good, Hostel 2 in and of itself is just bad IMHO. There are a couple of plot twists anyone half paying attention will see coming a mile away. The torture scenes are so brief that the gore and splatter doesn't really have time to register shock/horror/disgust/etc. Really, it seemed like a lazy movie with a thrown-together and hurried script. Considering how SAW 2 and SAW 3 were made about 9 months after the predecessor, it can be done successfully.

What are the odds on a Hostel 3 being made? I'd say very long odds.smile.gif

At first, thank you Nuk for the resume wink.gif I have seen first Hostel and I really didn't like it. There was only gore and nothing more. But if I understand right, hostel2 has the same structure and I'm not going to watch this film. diablo.gif
