High stakes gambling takes on a sinister new meaning in this third chapter of the terrifying HOSTEL series. While attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas, four friends are enticed by two sexy escorts to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture, where members of the Elite Hunting Club are hosting the most sadistic show in town.

The gore is nowhere near that of I and II though, and the acting falls well short of believable considering people are being tortured to death by their worst nightmares. But the real failure to provide suspense and shocks lies in the complete overlooking of the people who are paying to have people killed. The underlying chilling aspect of the previous two films was the convincing portrayal of seemingly normal people who would make on-line bids to buy people who they could torture. The scene of a smiling perfect family man breakfasting with his wife and kids while bidding on his laptop for a person he wants to kill gave real depth to the previous Hostel story. Scenes like this were a stand out feature of the previous films but this time we get nothing approaching that tension.
So with Hostel III there are no real storylines attached to the people who pay to kill, and we don't ever get to know their characters. Worse still though is that they only watch and never bloody their own hands, and in that respect the film has taken a major backward step and softened the impact between victim and killer which has been such a strong point previously. The glitzy LA setting adds nothing compared to the previous eastern European locations which offered mysteriously beautiful landscapes mixed with a feeling of brooding underlying danger.
There are no real shocks or memorable moments here, and for me it's a shame that a great opportunity to take the Hostel storyline to another level has been missed.
I read a lot of the Amazon reviews before watching and almost didn't bother after the generally negative feedback.
However, it really is ok. Not great and not as gory as numbers 1 or 2 but ok. It is well made and the acting and screenplay are ok. I think the problem is that it doesn't compare well to the other two but if you ignore that, it stands up perfectly well on its own. So, you will probably enjoy it more if you haven't seen the others.
Personally, I am not a big fan of excessive gore in torture movies anyway. The more the better in slasher or zombie movies but that's probably just me. I almost gave it 4 stars but decided the ending let it down a bit.
Anyway, as another reviewer has said, the first 5 min or so are probably the best but don't let that put you off. After that, the real plot starts to unfold at a fair pace.
The basic story is about a well organised and world wide 'elite hunting club' that like to capture people and then torture them to death in imaginative ways. The club members place bets on things like what the victim will say when pleading for their life, how long they will last or how they will actually be killed.
Four friends go on a stag night to Vegas, decide they want something more exciting than a Casino and end up going to strange 'freaky' club. You can probably guess roughly what happens next. If you have seen either numbers 1 or 2 then you will have a pretty good idea already although I bet one or two things will still be a suprise.
There are a few bits that don't really make sense but they don't spoil the overall story.Read more ›
If you like your snuff films with pretty women serving drinks, wagering and a few twists, this is it.
Hey I just got a great idea for Hangover IV.
1 was the best 2 was ok.... However 3, quite frankly was just completely shocking.... For none of the reasons we wanted it to be.... Gore, on the low side, not remotely creepy, rubbish story Line.... I almost turned It off it was so bad!
Boring, no where near enough gore, not scary... Zero sexiness.......
Please spare you cash or wait till its a penny ay!! Lol
