A trio of teenagers, two American, one Icelandic, backpack around Europe looking for a good time. While in Amsterdam, they are told of a youth hostel in Slovakia where all their wildest dreams will come true. Jumping onto the first train there, the three stumble into a hedonistic travellers' paradise. Soon however, one of the three boys goes missing and slowly but surely the holiday from hell begins to unfold...

 Wholly offensive and completely awful.

| | See all DavidSaul's reviews (9)

Hostel ranks as quite probably the worst film I have ever seen. I doubt anyone will be able to top it. The major problem with it is Eli Roth's complete lack of understanding of what a horror movie is supposed to do.

It is SUPPOSED to scare you! Alas, the wholly untalented writer/director instead seems to think it involves oodles of sex and hyper-gratuitous violence with nothing to scare at all.

When a movie is hyped based on it being basically a gore-fest, it should send off warning signals. The script is poorly written and the characters are completely uninteresting, which means you don't actually care about them as they are tortured to death, thereby rendering the movie pretty pointless as you watch any escapes they may (or may not) make.

The acting is actually pretty good, and the gore - though pointless - is very well done. A technical achievement for Roth, then, but an abject failure in the entertainment stakes.

Avoid.

 Not even deserving of one star...

If I could rate this below one star, I most certainly would. Eli Roth has a talent for only ONE thing, and that is pedalling cynical and dehumanising (and badly made) so-called 'torture-porn'. This is NOT entertainment, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Don't get me wrong, I like horror films, but I like well made and intelligent horror, and something which doesn't rely solely on gore/torture scenes, which is all Roth knows how to do. I went to see this with a friend - thankfully, he had the good grace to apologise afterwards!! It was almost as bad as Roth's first effort, 'Cabin Fever' - the only reason it was even a slight improvement on that feeble rubbish is because he did slightly more with a bigger budget. I have no doubt the sequel will be just as awful as this was. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

This film is so poor that i decided to sell my copy on playtrade.Seriously if you would like a porn movie then buy it otherwise don't. This film is on for 1hr 32mins and the first 50min is porn then the last 42mins it turns into some sort of an horror fim that won't even scare you.Do we really need a number 2?

 Book in today...

First things first, Hostel ISN'T the most shocking, brutal, stomach-churning, depraved, disturbing, controversial gore-fest Eli Roth may have you believe. It is, however, one of the freshest, most 'enjoyable' horror films of recent years and marks it's director out as a face to watch in the future. Definitely a film of two halves what starts out as a 'Porky's' sex comedy (with plenty of sex) gradually mutates into a dark, black-humoured gore fest (with plenty of gore). Referencing and homaging past horror classics and featuring a classic cameo from Takeshi Miike 'Hostel' (to be followed by a sequel this year) is a perfect antidote to all the feel good, rom-coms cluttering the market and any horror lover should add it to their collection now...

 BLOODY OVERRATED!

Hostel is a very overrated horror film, it's biggest influences come from the video nasties of the the 70's and early 80's, but has nothing new to add the blood splattered movies of that decade. The first half of the film acts as a fratt house teenage comedy, as the guy's go looking for drugs and sex, only to end up in the deepest bowels of hell. To be honest there are some sequences that do impress, but if you take into account all the hype surrounding the move, the film is nothing special, and seems very dull if you compare it to similar movies to the likes of Saw and the recent remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes.
But on it's own merrits it does pass the time, but don't go expecting anything ground breaking or earth shattering.
