Product Description

Product Description

Hostel 2

With only one film under his belt and the endorsement of Quentin Tarantino, Eli Roth became a virtual horror brand with Hostel, a yarn about a group of thrill-seeking American college dudes backpacking through Europe, only to be seduced into a Slovakian money-for-torture ring where they became the prey.

The sequel begins right where that film left off, filling us in on the whereabouts of lone survivor Paxton (Jay Hernandez). But before long, we see that gender roles are reversed and we are travelling with sensible Beth (Lauren German), hedonistic Whitney (Bijou Phillips), and virginal Lorna (Heather Matarazzo). After tussling with a gaggle of shifty men on a train, they meet Axelle (Vera Jordanova), a gorgeous woman who persuades them to follow her to a rejuvenating spa in Slovakia. As the trio checks into the same infamous hostel, Roth shows us the inner workings of the previously mysterious torture club. Once the girls are put up on the auction block, online bidding begins among the club's members---who are revealed to be prominent international business-people.

After Beth and Whitney are won by type-A American corporate jerk Todd (Richard Burgi), who believes that killing someone will give him power, and his reluctant associate, Stuart (Roger Bart), the film shifts to the preparations for their inaugural slayings within the bloody walls of the warehouse. For those who embraced Hostel's abrupt tonal shifts and very realistic gore, Roth serves up amplified doses of both in his follow-up. Astute horror fans will find a few amusing in-jokes among the carnage, but beware---things get incredibly strong, and Roth's charnel house chic intends to offend.

From Amazon.co.uk

Hostel

Well made for the genre (the excessive-skin-displayed-before-gruesome-bloody-torture-begins genre, that is) Hostel follows two randy Americans (Jay Hernandez, Friday Night Lights, and Derek Richardson, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd) and an even randier Icelander (Eythor Gudjonsson) as they trek to Slovakia, where they're told beautiful girls will have sex with anyone with an American accent. Unfortunately, the girls will also sell young Americans to a company that offers victims to anyone who will pay to torture and murder.

To his credit, writer/director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) takes his time setting things up, laying a realistic foundation that makes the inevitable spilling of much blood all the more gruesome. The sardonic joke, of course, is that Americans are worth the most in this brothel of blood because everyone else in the world wants to take revenge upon them. This dark humour and political subtext help set Hostel above its more brainless sadistic compatriots, like House of Wax or The Devil's Rejects. In general, though, there's something lacking; horror used to suggest some threat to the spirit--today's horror can conceive of nothing more troubling than torturing the flesh. For afficionados, Hostel features a nice cameo by Takashi Miike, director of bloody Japanese flicks like Audition and Ichi the Killer. --Bret Fetzer

HOSTEL PART I: This film is about three back packers travelling around europe, while in amsterdam after a night out clubbing they find themselves locked out of the hostel they were staying at.This is where they meet a man who lures them to the hostel in slovakia
with the promise of finding promiscuous women.Once there they along with others at the hostel begin to disappear one by one into dungeon like cells where they await torture and death at the hands of wealthy business men(members of the elite hunting club)who have bought them.Gore and nudity are plentiful in this film in particular a scene where one of the victims is being dragged down the hallway past some of the cells with there doors open and the people inside being tortured in terrible ways.There is also a decent ending to the film.

HOSTEL PART II: This film is much the same as part one except here the three back packers are women staying in rome when they are lured away by an agent from the hostel.There is more back round information on the elite hunting club here on those who run it and in particular the members who appear to be very ordinary family people bidding on their computers for the opportunity to torture and kill.There is not quite as much nudity or gore in this film compared to the first film but some of the scenes are equally as shocking.I didnt find the ending to be that good, at least not as good as the ending of the first one but both are still well worth buying especially if you like gore filled horror films.

One final point is that you may not think very much of the second film the first time you watch it, i thought it was poor after the first time i watched it but i gave it another chance and my opinion completely changed

Hello UK residents...
If, like me, you are considering buying this double feature blu-ray of Hostel 1 & 2...please bear in mind it's region locked; and there's a fault on the first film's audio. I have a switchable player and can confirm this disc will NOT play in a Region B player.
Also, all there is on the disc is the films. No extras!!! Picture quality is better than the UK DVD's though!

so other people have left detailed plots and reviews on this page, mine is going to be brief-ish and to the point
i loved both films, theyre awesome. i prefer hostel part 2 more than part 1 because there is too much nudity in part 1 (perhaps not such a problem for guys??) theyre both gorier (if that is a word) than hell and i strongly recommend them to anyone who loves corn syrup :)

Being a fan of the Saw series I thought this would appeal. It is horrific, shocking, brutal, cruel, sick and nerve-wracking.
The sets are amazing. The girls are red hot (especially in the first one).
A must-have for any horror fan.

As a film reviewer, I've never really understood why so many people hate the 'Hostel' franchise. I can understand that people may find it disturbing and that it is very twisted in many ways but I can't get my head around why they are 'bad' films?

They are great films in my opnion, you know you are watching a good film when you feel shudders run down your spine, you know your watching a good film when you look around every corner to see if someone's there, you know you are watching a good film when you feel so involved in the film's element and you can't escape from it, that is what these films do fantastically.
Eli Roth has totally redeemed himself with these two diamonds after his first motion picture, 'Cabin Fever' which was without a doubt, the poorest and most terrible excuse of a 'Teen Horror' I think I have ever seen.

These two films are an essential to anyone's DVD collection and this boxset is a fantastic price. These are two ideal films to watch over this Halloween period.

Before you start thinking that I believe hours of mindless violence makes a film good(which it doesn't on any terms), if you haven't seen either of the 'Hostel' films, watch them and see for yourself.
They are an acquired in all respect but they are thoroughly enjoyable and take a step away from violence in reality for a while.

Mindless torture porn going on here as both these films are pretty identical in plot, the first following 3 young virile backpackers to a hostel in Slovakia where they are lured by slammin' hot (and rather amorous) babes to a nearby bunker, where they are sold to rich business men who torture their victims for pleasure in underground chambers.

Cue lots of blood, severed body parts & unceremonious murder. Not one to watch with your parents.

As for Hostel 2, it's pretty much the same again except with 3 women instead of men.

I think it's hilarious how people refer to this edition as 'UNCUT' when you consider the second film's ending.

*Spolier alert here* but if there are any lessons to be learned from Hostel 2, it is firstly, inadvisable to use that c word to a woman who's holding a certain part of your anatomy with a scissors and secondly, if you have lost your football in Slovakia, there is a somewhat unconventional alternative you can use for a kickabout.

If you like blood & guts, then this is the boxset for you because there's little else in it.

Somehow I doubt these movies did the Slovakian Board of Tourism any favours...
