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.

Although we know the plot [from the first movie] and the first disappearance is late in coming, the atmosphere of this film is more intense and sinister than the first. This also has the added twist of developing the character depth of the monied killers whilst illustrating that for the procurers it's simply business. This makes the participants more `real' and 3 dimensional, which means that although there is less gore here than no.1, when it comes we identify with the characters more readily which adds to the intensity.
The disc opens to a anti piracy ad, then goes to main menu offering play, Audio [English or Italian], subtitles [English with or without commentary, on/off], scene selection, special features [commentaries, deleted scenes, gag reel etc] and trailers for 3 other movies.
I have no problem giving this a **** but the violence is quite unsettling. Anyone want to play football?
So the two things that I wanted more of on this occasion, were the gore, which I thought was blissfully no-holds-barred in Hostel one, and the girl element, which was shamelessly enjoyable. In fact, so far-reaching was it in the first film that for the first 30 minutes I thought someone had slipped a porn disc into the box instead. But Hostel II has far less flesh on offer, less gore, less suspense, less... everything.
The first 30 mins or so of the film chart the journey of a group of girls to a hostel lured there by another girl who's a life model, drawing victims out of her classes for carriage over to Slovakia. The girl travellers check into a hostel and you know how it goes from there: they get auctioned, sold off and then used to their clients' whims. There is then an interesting change from the first film in that Hostell II follows the activities of two buyers from remote sale to being in the same room as the girls. One buyer chickens out from dishing out the torture and the other goes for his life. However, from this point on I found it increasingly hard to care. In the first film people, the victims are just treated as lumps of meat [as are the girls who solicit them]: the whole film is about the carnal disposable nature of flesh. However, in Hostel II Roth tries to inject a bit of personality and emotion into it by trying to get us to feel sorry for one of the girls. In short, we don't. We want her offed just like the little victim she is, we don't want to see glassy-eyed close-ups of her snivelling face. I won't go into detail, but sufficed to say she ends up getting the better of the situation, not the other way round.
Overall I felt the gore element was pulled punch in the film. The only exception to this is the scene where a female client bathes in the blood of a victim - Bathory-esque - after slitting her throat, but after this, things get a little tamer and my interest fleeted.
If you are coming to watch a film like this you must be expecting all-out insensibility on every level, and Hostel II just doesn't deliver, all the elements that were there in Hostel I are still there but just much less so. Or maybe I'm becoming too desensitised these days. The only upside was that I only paid £2 for the DVD [which was a dud so I had to end up watching it online anyway].
