Hostel 2 (2007)
Director: Eli Roth
Main Stars: Laura German, Heather Matarazzo, Bijou Phillips
Storyline: Three American college students head to a Slovakian hostel and the truth behind it.
Review (Spoils): This time three female college students take a nice European vacation and when they are at their hostel they learn that they get auctioned off to the highest bidder so that new owner can do what he/she pleases with the new winning. There is a flip side of this tale as we also see the journey of two young men who are trying to become part of this elite club to become a bidder.
We are a tale yet again about the elite club of the rich where they go to Europe and bid on travellers so that they may have sex and torture them for their own pleasure. This time we have some young ladies that become the victims as they get tortured in the worse ways as they are battling to escape the madness of this rich and yet insane club. We have some off screen torture, some finger snapping, some eye gouging and nasty train accident and lots of psychological torment. This film runs along the same mind set of the original one and it is not a whole lot of different except this time it is women being abused. Lot of blood and gore but nothing new to the series.
Rating: I personally don’t really get this series…. it is not as strong as Saw and you can just sense that the film lost track and was just trying to shock to shock with no point. The acting was pared at best and the characters where a interesting as a blank piece of paper….this film was lacking.
