Product Description

Product Description

Presented by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill, Vol. 1 & 2) and directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever), Hostel is a shocking and relentless film in the tradition of Saw about two American backpackers (Jay Hernandez, Friday Night Lights and Derek Richardson, Dumb and Dumberer) in Europe who find themselves lured in as victims of a murder-for-profit business.

Paxton and Josh, two college friends, are lured by a fellow traveler to what's described as a nirvana for American backpackers – a particular hostel in an out-of-the-way Slovakian town stocked with Eastern European women as desperate as they are gorgeous. The two friends arrive and soon easily pair off with exotic beauties Natalya and Svetlana. In fact, too easily...

Initially distracted by the good time they're having, the two Americans quickly find themselves trapped in an increasingly sinister situation that they will discover is as wide and as deep as the darkest, sickest recess of human nature itself – if they survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never thought torture could be so fun Feb. 26 2006
Format:DVD
Thanks to the rise of Asia Extreme horror, American horror seems to be stepping away from the teenie bopper-slasher crap of recent years. Hostel is one of the best American horror movies I've seen in years. Full of never-shattering torture scenes, tense moments and even humor, this surpasses Eli Roth's Cabin Fever by far. Not since watching Takashi Miike's Audition have I felt like turning away from a scene at what I was watching. although I loved it, the happy ending was a little disappointing, until I found out there will be a squel. Now coming out on DVD as Unrated I can only imagine what new horrors will be added to it. Now, if you like your horror to be the Jasons, Freddy's or Final Destinations...this is not the movie for you. If you are a fan of Saw, Ichi the Killer, Oldboy or the Devil's Rejects...this is a movie for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Torture porn... Jan. 21 2014
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Eli Roth... the name alone brings a bit of a shudder. Cabin Fever may have been an interesting choice, but Hostel only feels like the degenerate project of a teenager who hasn't grown up yet.

Tired formula, predictable plot (if any), waaay too gory scenes and just about every dumb decision a character can make, these guys make them. At least the horror atmosphere is very well rendered as well as the visual spectacle of visiting another country through the lens of a more than capable cinematographer. Giving credits where credit's due, Eli Roth's directing may be a bit better here than it was on Cabin Fever... and it got even better on the Hostel sequel... so there's much hope.

In terms of special features, what the 2-disc DVD edition contained has all been ported over, so there's close to 2 hours worth of behind the scenes material, deleted scenes, goofs, commentaries, etc. You're in for a treat as many secrets are revealed about the making of this movie.

Fans of horror, you will most likely want to jump at this opportunity. It has all the qualities "Saw" had yet doesn't delve too much into the "let's kill people all the time for no reason". Here at least you get a semblance of care from the writer/director. Other fans who like suspense, thrillers and such would best rent it first.

1.0 out of 5 stars Violence for violence sake Feb. 28 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Hostel(released Sept/05)stars,among others,Jay Hernandez as Paxton,Derek Richardson as Josh,Eyţór Guđjónsson as Óli, and Barbara Nedeljáková as Natalya.I was recently handed this one and didn`t know anything about the film,except Taranino was involved,which piqued my interest.It turned out it was yet another of such plot lines with people getting into places they don't belong and barely escaping with their lives,if at all.But as the film got deeper and deeper into the story,the gore got worse and worse and it became totally gratuitous to the extreme.How many sawed off body parts,drills to the body and blood squirting and spattering everywhere,does one need to see before it is too much.Not alot,but for director/producer/writer Roth,"just one more for the road",seemed to be his motto.
The story finds three young men,two American and one Icelandic,back packing across Europe.They get a tip from a young man about this hostel in Czechoslovakia,that's not on any maps.The three travel there and manage to hook up with some local action.The next morning Oli,their Icelandic friend,goes missing.We have a cut scene where we see Oli's disembodied head on a table.
That night at a disco Josh feels sick and goes back to the hostel.Later Paxton gets sick and gets lost finding the disco washroom and is locked in a closet instead. The next morning Paxton gets out and finds Josh has gone missing also.Josh,we have seen,was being held prisoner by a man who they had all previously met on the train going to the hostel.He tortured and killed Josh.
Paxton is at loose ends and decides to have a local girl take him to a museum before he finally leaves later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hostel is an Eye-Popping Gore-Fest! Sept. 29 2006
Format:DVD
Three college students (Jay Hernandez, Derek Richardson and Eythor Gudjonsson) decide to backpack across Europe. They have no idea what lies in wait. When they meet an older man on the train, they're told about a village where women will do anything to satisfy a man--especially Americans. Checking into a hostel in Slovakia, the three men discover that their room comes with a few perks. Three gorgeous women. And this of course leads to one thing.

Most of the first half of the film is filled with the gratuitous sexual encounters so prevalent in today's horror movies; however, since it's actually a key part of the story line, I guess they had to do it. (No pun intended.) The women are bait. And once the men are lured in, they're drugged and find themselves in a terrifying predicament.

As a longtime fan of horror movies, I felt there was extreme shock value in the gross chopping, drilling and slicing of human flesh. It made me cringe and turn away at times, and I have a strong stomach. It isn't a psychological thriller or ghostly horror, so much as a movie that tests your limits on what you can visually handle seeing.

The final explanation of what's actually going on is perhaps what sets this film apart from other random slasher films. In fact, it's the 'hunt club' aspect that makes the story line more believable and even, dare I say, feasible. Yet instead of hunting down victims, wealthy men can torture, maim or murder in order to satisfy their sadistic needs. And as a subtle humorous dig, it's the Americans who are most prized. For what better way to get back at the US than to torture and kill future generations? The shocking violence of the group of children that appears occasionally also sends a strong message.
