Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

The inevitable sequel to one of the decade’s most intriguing and well-made horror films, Hostel Part II, as the title implies, picks up pretty much where the last film left off. And it doesn’t take too long for the sequel to find the same groove that earned its predecessor so much attention.

The setting is once again an underground club, where people bid for the right to torture residents at the hostel of the title. Hostel Part II, however, lets us see events from the other perspective too, as we meet the wealthy businessmen who are availing themselves of the club’s services. It’s a logical dynamic for the movie, and it does bring a fresh perspective to a film that does eventually settle down to a cavalcade of gore and shock.

As a director, Eli Roth has clearly improved since last time around, even if this time he too often succumbs to the temptation to show rather than imply, and Hostel Part II as a result feels a little less fresh and more uncomfortable than its predecessor. Yet it’s most certainly an unsettling piece of cinema, and one likely to find favour with Roth’s increasing fanbase.

A word of warning, though. Hostel Part II isn’t shy about pulling its punches, and it very much justifies its 18 certificate. It’s also a cut above many of its modern day contemporaries in the genre, even though it fails to measure up to part one. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Presented by Quentin Tarantino (Hostel, Kill Bill, Vol. 1 & 2) and written and directed by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever),  Hostel Part II is the shocking and gruesome sequel of the underground torture ring where rich businessmen pay to torture and murder their victims.   The second installment to this terrifying franchise centers around three young American women (Lauren German, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) (Bijou Phillips, Bully), and (Heather Matarazzo, Welcome to the Dollhouse) who are studying in Rome. A gorgeous, sophisticated European acquaintance invites the trio to join her for a weekend getaway at an exotic natural spa, assuring them they will be able to relax, rejuvenate and bond. The girls find themselves in Slovakia and check into the ill-fated Hostel, where they are poised to become victims for auction, pawns in the fantasies of the sick and privileged from around the world who secretly travel there to savor more grisly pursuits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the original. 4 July 2010
By Ernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I wasn't a fan of the first Hostel, but Eli Roth's follow up is a much better film. The film is better paced and the story has more depth as it shows both the killers and victims and the events leading up to their meeting in the factory.
The female victims are seen enticed into a short break at a Slovakian spa and the killers are seen as ordinary wealthy businessmen bidding in a online auction for their victim.
Though it is a little less gory and violent than the first film the killing seems far more potent as films improved character depth makes you more involved with both the killers and their victims.
Overall, if you liked the first Hostel film then this is a no-brainer and even if you didn't rate the first movie then this is well worth a look.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near as good as it should be 28 Oct 2007
By Blue hunter VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I really liked the first hostel film even though a lot did not,so i was in a way looking forward to the sequel.Well i was let down big style.I don't often pan films on amazon as i try and look for the good points to any film but this one hasn't really got any.Lets start with the basics,if you watched the first hostel film then you would expect some gory scenes in this one aswell,well lets just say that the amount of gory scenes could be counted on one hand and you would still have some fingers spare!(no pun intended).The storyline is similer to the first but just does not have the same impact as the first,you don't like the main stars of the film and are not really thinking will they get away or not,you just think the charactors are neither here nor there.I was relly let down by this film and i'm sorry if you were hoping for the same as i was before this film came out,but please don't let my opinion sway you too much,just see for yourself and see what you think,although renting it might be a good idea.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gratuitous Bilge 24 Mar 2008
By R. Mullaney VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Hostel was effective because of the idea, not the violence. The hopelessness of being prisoner in the Eastern European wilderness and suggestion that fellow human beings would pay to dismember innocent backpackers was engrossing to audiences. Hostel II just uses the exact same idea and raises the bar for unpleasant violence.

The problem with Hostel II is Roth's juvenile fascination with mutilating naked women isn't hidden behind a good idea anymore. Filmgoers are no longer shocked by the concept so Roth just tries to shock them with sickening violence. I understand that this is the ethos of the Grindhouse/exploitation movie but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice good dialogue and story. With a mentor like Quentin Tarantino and the resources of Takashi Miike you'd think Roth would have been embarrassed to release this rubbish and I'm very surprised Tarantino would allow his name to be associated with the film. While Roth undoubtedly shares Tarantino's vast knowledge of movies he just can't seem to implement their ideas in an original way and his films tend to disintegrate into mindless violence. There are some good scenes, the online auction to see which visiting sicko gets to torture which girl is inventive and the blood bath is visually well shot but apart from that Hostel II is a nasty vacuous movie with no substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than the first one 12 April 2013
By Willow
Format:DVD
This film is beautifully filmed and thoroughly captivating. The film picks up from the end of Hostel 1 with the only survivor being killed. The emphasis this time is on a group of girls and what happens to them. Where this film really excels is in the telling of the story of the men and women who pay to kill these girls. I loved the build up with the victim meeting the guy who was going to kill her. The way the girls were separated was seamlessly done. I absolutely loved (DON'T READ THIS IF YOU DON;T WANT TO KNOW THE TWIST) the way that the victim was able to take control and out bid her killer. This was brilliant because the director could have so easily have continued on along the same path as before, but instead Eli Roth built on the original and filled in all the questions that we were asking at the end of the first one, such as who are these people who pay to kill and why do they do it.
The actors were amazing and I loved the way Eli Roth brought in so many international actors. I strongly suggest watching the special features at the beginning as this proved very enlightening and made the movie more enjoyable. The only down fall and it is not worth losing a star over , was the main actors who the story revolved around, were also in Desperate Housewives, one was Susan's husband and the other was a stalker of Bree. Now while this will mean nothing to people who haven't watched desperate Housewives, I did keep expecting Susan and Bree to suddenly show up on screen. They were brilliant in their roles, just not very scary because of what else they had been in.
You will enjoy this film and you don't have to see the first one, it stands along and I would highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the squeamish 28 July 2009
By Louise
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film is really gory and it is no wonder there are so many unstable people in the world. The story line is better than Hostel and the special effects are amazing, but this is certainly not a film for the faint hearted!

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for the squeamish. 13 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Hostel: Part II does what Part I didn't: it actually concentrates on gore and horror. Where the first movie shows full frontal nudity for the majority of its run time, part two cuts most of that out and just gives gore fans what they want.

What's especially good is that it doesn't just start a completely different story without any mention of characters from the previous movie. It picks up right where the first film left off with Paxton, although it does swiftly finish off and we get introduced to the new characters within the first 10 minutes. Part II follows three female college students who enter a hostel in Slovakia and are effectively bought by external bidders to be tortured and killed, much like in Part I.

Hostel: Part II is essentially more of the same from Part I apart from this time, it's with women. It's gritty and creepy most of the time and because of the weak and vulnerable stereotype of women in film, you really find yourself being scared and anxious for the girls. Especially Lorna in her death scene. Ouch.

Considering this movie didn't make even close to as much as the first, it's a pretty enjoyable torture flick and the ending is far better. I would even dare to say that this is almost as good as the first. Definitely not for the squeamish though.
