Presented by genre master Quentin Tarantino and written and directed by Eli Roth, "Hostel" is a dark, bloody exploration of torture and evil. The film centres on two young Americans backpacking through Europe who find themselves lured in as victims of a murder-for-profit business. Graphic and deeply disturbing, 'Hostel' is one of the most brutal films ever made!
All horror films ask you the same question. Is it right that I should be watching people reenact suffering and fear for my own entertainment? Good horror films leaven this guilt with intelligence, imagination and sensitivity. This piece of trash just offered torture for it's own sake, just to push the experience of screen brutality that little bit further. With no reward. Just the sensation of humanity bumping along the bottom of the extremes of possible depravity.
