I thought the first Hostel was heading into over-used settings and thematics, but this one surprised me quite a bit by taking us "behind the scenes", if you will, of who decides what happens and to whom. It's quite unsettling, much like the first one, in terms of gore and horror, but this time, instead of following a trio of guys who only come in for screwing anything that has a skirt, we're treated with a lovely trio of ladies who are about to enter Hell, making their future sufferings all the more unbearable.

Although the first movie featured quite a nice video, the sequel feels a few inches under it. Some of the darker scenes really have a hard time showing textures and details, but otherwise, it's as bad as it's likely to get. The sound is very adequate and gives a nice chilly and creepy atmosphere when needed. As for the special features, while the first one featured slightly more, this one's doing a pretty good job.

All in all, if you have only one Hostel movie to watch, I would strongly suggest this one for its visceral tone, it's more mature take on the subject and Eli Roth's great direction for a strong cast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eli Roth delivers another shocker Oct. 27 2007
Format:DVD
This movie picks up where the original story left off and expands on the fictional kill-for-profit industry in Slovakia. This time, the backpackers are women instead of guys. Another interesting new twist is that we get to follow closely the stories of the rich American businessmen who pay to torture and kill these victims. If you're looking for more of the gore and torture so prevalent in the first film you will not be dissapointed. But where Hostel falls short of attaining the heights of the classic original, is that this time we know from the first frame what's going on and roughly what will happen next whereas the original had a mysterious plot that unfolded in shocking manner. Definitely to be watched if you liked the first film, just don't expect this one to be quite as good.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I went to go see "Hostel: Part II" in the theater because I was interested in seeing what it would be like to watch one of these torture/horror films in a situation where you cannot push the pause or stop button on your remote. I had only seen "Hostel," "Wolf Creek," and other examples of this particularly grizzly little splatter flick genre at home and I do not think the experience is ever as intense. The only horror films I have seen in theaters in recent years have been the "Saw" trilogy, and as bloody and gory as those get they are really not the same genre as what you have with this film. However, it turns out my little experiment was doomed to failure because Eli Roth's sequel is certainly not "worse" than the original in terms of the scenes of torture and killing, which should be a major disappointment to fans of the first because there is nothing here to rival it.

This perception is colored somewhat by the fact that in addition to things being more gruesome in the original there was the underlying question of what the hell was going on that added to the horror. That element is removed in the sequel because we know immediately when the "recruiter" for the hostel shows up to lure the victims to their respective fates. This time instead of three guys it is three gals: Beth (Lauren German, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") is the good girl, Whiteny (Bijou Phillips, "Havoc") is the bad girl, and Lorna (Heather Matarazzo, "Welcome to the Dollhouse" is the weird girl. They start off in Rome but quickly make their way to Slovakia.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok movie, the killer characters were interesting. SPOILER Alert June 7 2010
By Roberto Pang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie, it was a bit more interesting the first one. I was disappointed that Jay Hernandez gets killed right away, but it also it makes sense since no witnesses/survivors can be left or else the whole operation is at risk.

What really put a new light in the movie were the two male characters who are new to the club. There we get to see two different characters at play, one who is eager to taste evil and one who has to be dragged into the situation. The one who is eager has fantasies of how killing somebody will make him gain a characteristic that will intimidate others, a characteristic that does not need to be mentioned yet perceptible. What he fails to consider is that the characteristic that he years for, might not come from killing an innocent and defenseless victim, or killing without need or killing out of curiosity. The other clients of the club are truly evil, they indulge in their dark pastime as the goal, for pleasure, and that is how and why they can kill not only without remorse but with pure pleasure. At the end I did feel sorry for him, very little effort was needed (even a simple matter of just sit and wait) to complete his contract and he would have survived.

For Stuart, the character who has to be dragged into the situation, on the other hand, he does not want to be "that guy" yet slowly but surely when presented with the proper opportunities and motivations, he turns out to embrace the darkness and evil. Stuart's repressions and frustrations come to surface and he will project them into anybody who is in front of him. His transformation from the hesitant/undecided guy is extreme and very convincing. This also left me thinking about his friend, maybe his friend couldn't transform because he did not have any repressions or frustration. Being a wealthy and physically attractive man who probably got his way most of the time, there was probably very little to brew evil feelings.

The transformation to evil is also extreme for the surviving girl, Beth, who turn herself into a ruthless killer, too. But at least she did have a very good reason for that. Payback is a bitch, indeed.

I guess it was good for Stuart to embrace evil, the audience had to abandon any sympathy for this character for the ending to work. There was really no way out of that room without somebody murdered and had Stuart remain his old self and tried to save the girl, they both would have died.

Probably what I have mentioned was not the main idea of such a movie, but it was interesting to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbox quality is great, but the movie is terrible Jan. 6 2008
By M. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
I have our computer hooked up with a DVI-to-HDMI cable, and the quality of Amazon Unbox is suprprisingly good. It's almost indistinguishable from DVD quality except in a few rare cases of very high-speed camera pans where it is just a little staggered. The quality of this movie is no different, and the contrast of the dark settings is outstanding on Unbox.

Unfortunately that technology is wasted on Hostel Part 2. I like Roth's film "Cabin Fever". It was a creative film with a gritty plot line and a creative use of special effects. Hostel Part 2 really boils down to nothing more than "how creative can we be about torture" and "how stupid and obvious can we make the ending". I decided to see the movie because Eli Roth's promotion of the movie when it was realeased talked about the incredible ending. I love a good twist ending ("The Prestige" was one of my favorites for good endings), but this one was way too obvious. I won't spoil it, but it's not even worth the $4 rental fee.

The attempted creative use of torture winds up losing all creativity. It is obvious that the writers and directors were trying to be clever, but all you wind up seeing is their attempted cleverness regardless of the fact that it adds nothing to the plot.

If you want a good horror movie, try the remake of Halloween, 28 Weeks Later, or even Saw 4 (not the best, but at least it has a plot...). Save your money and avoid this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars disturbingly pathetic Jan. 7 2008
By EliteLamo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I don't know which is worse. Wanting to see this because I thought Hostel really touched on some ideas which had rich subplots to them, which could be carried on into other films of this genre perhaps, or wondering if Eli Roth, as self centered and ego driven as he is, was hoping that perhaps he would find a bit of charisma, chemistry, cohesion, character or hmmm, I don't know, perhaps something tangible in all of this, and we are left with nothing but a purposeless redundant look at a really horrific script with dry humor that bordered on revolting and cliched nuances that deeply moved me to actually think about turning it off, which I have never done since walking out of Spaced Invaders. I didn't care one iota about the girls in the movie, in fact I was hoping they would be killed.

Eli Roth said this in an interview: "Yeah man, I'm f***ing psyched. I honestly think that no matter what other movie comes out this summer -- no matter what their budget is -- nothing will even come close to the kind of ending we have in Hostel 2. I think it's one of the most shocking endings people have ever seen in a mainstream horror film. I think this is the movie where people are going to come out of it going, 'I can't even believe someone just did that."

I can't believe it was so bad. The ending was juvenile, pompous and actually funny. If you are into gore, lots of it, (well at least in one scene which personally I turned from the screen which was a first in my movie loving life), and like movies with no depth and equally no brain, then I can see why this would be right up your alley. Eli has talent and this was no shining example of what his potential is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hostility On The Screen June 28 2011
By Brian R Yandle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
For those of you who loved the original, Hostel 2 is definitely a worthy sequel. If you are like me & weren't particularly crazy about the first one, you might still enjoy it. I waited for DVD on this one & actually watched it twice on the same day.

I don't know where to begin on this one. For so many different reasons, Hostel 2 was a vast improvement over the first & I could easily watch it again. Roth had a great premise the first time around but really delivered the goods this time such as atmosphere, character development, & I like the overall flow much better. Lastly, the casting is damned near perfect. The leads work well together but I had to give Roth props for giving us the cameo appearance of Deodato as the Italian cannibal. Top notch!

In addition to really giving us more insight on the main characters, Hostel 2 also sheds more the light on the underground torture ring. It wopuld seems things have changed a bit since Paxton (Jay Hernandez) escaped. Now they have cameras in every torture cell & the entire Slovakian factory is not as easy to access. This time around, bids are placed worldwide for the soon-to-be tortured Americans which is a interesting twist as well.

Naturally, Hostel 2 does deliver the violence & gore as one would hope but the first forty minutes or so focus more on the developement of three college girls taking a trip to Prague & simply wanting to escape the encroachment of obnoxious guys on the train & elsewhere. What makes the sequel even more intriguing would be grand focus also on the two businessmen who have just shelled out thousands of dollars to shed some innocent blood. We eventually find out which one is the real monster when it comes time to kill the young women.

Although Hostel 2 does reflect the ugly side of the world we live in, Roth also gives us a liberal dose of black comedy which makes his films all the more digestible. I do love the film even though I think the ending is a bit anti-climatic. Overall, I hope this is the last we will see of this series. If Lions Gate knows best, they will leave it alone for now.

2.0 out of 5 stars not punishing enough Feb. 16 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The gore film, once a devoted worshiper I was! Seriously, is there really any need for new gore films? It seems the defining alpha-omega load was blown in the 70s and 80s then refined in Japan for almost 2 decades as many reviewers have already noted. There isn't much you can do that hasn't been done besides soften up the delivery to ensure mass distribution. I really enjoyed the first Hostel film for its story, it seemed with a bit more restraint without taking the easy way out going with over the top comedy/violence it would have made for some classic material. Sometimes you need to be dark and uncompromising. For all of their flaws and unintentional humor, Cannibal Holocaust and Men Behind The Sun were unrelenting, gory, and made you feel truly awful after seeing them. More recently, Irreversible though only containing two extremely explicit (and genuinely disturbing) scenes of violence is far more my idea of what a hellish dark trip to Europe can be. No "cute" laughs in that one, if you were disappointed in this film but liked the scenery and dark mood it was trying to evoke check that movie out. If the violence doesn't give you a headache the camera work will.

This movie is an unfortunate bore from start to finish, everything that has been done already in the first Hostel is done again, in the most uninspired way imaginable. It would have been good to see a straight film about two American businessmen who take a trip to a "murder brothel" and what happens. But here its just, urgghghg! Also Eli Roth really needs to stop lifting scenes from other movies, the execution of the street kid was taken straight from City of God only this time its far more watered down, unshocking and lame. There's not even a blood spurt, whats the point? The only reason this movie exists is because violence is now completely acceptable in mainstream film, there is a massive audience ignorant of the genre this spawned from with an interest in the darker side of cinema so why not capitalize on it? I'm not saying its an outrage just, well, there's far better films out there heavy on violence that can be taken seriously enough to have an impression on you other than a re-run through the basics of Tom Savini splatterdom.

As just a movie to watch, its boring, badly written, and horribly acted, the girl from Welcome To The Dollhouse, an amazing actress judging from that film, is reduced to a stuttering idiot who gets killed in a tribute to Elizabeth Bathory, you can actualy visualize Eli Roth's moronic thought process every step of the way down to how he cast the film. Eli Roth probably won't reach the heights of badness Wes Craven did in the 90s ruining the horror genre for a decade+ but he's certainly the kid with the Green Day shirt at the GG Allin show. Ok thats harsh, he's the kid with the Misfits shirt at The Undead show.
