"Hostel" -
Negative points first:

You could have basically removed the opening Amsterdam sequences (bar the kid
telling them about the Hostel) for better pacing, and I wish Roth would lose the
'gay', 'retarded' 'suks' spouting characters as I hate such plebs in real life
and don't need them as characters you are supposed to care about in films. I'd
torture the creeps too!
Not as bas as "Cabin Fever" for this though thankfully.

Also some of the nasty as hell mutilations seemed to be shrugged off after like
a paper cut! The finger amputation especially seemed to be almost forgotten.


Other than that, I have to say I liked it. I have no time for homophobia and I
hope Rot6h is not like his characters, but it has to be said that this IS
exactly how a good few American teens would act, it is after all 24 hour Baptist TV Land.
As such it seemed in place and even justified when the 'Dutch Guy', a complete
stranger, touched the lad up.
So no real criticism here.

Or in fact of the anti-American stance. Roth showed various nationalities of
victim AND villian...if anything it was biased against what Europe is supposedly
like! But hey..it's a horror film not a documentary.
And it seems the lead character would have learnt a valuable lesson anyway.

The plot was far fetched of course, but Roth embraced that fact and as such
neutralised any criticism.
Delightfully strange moments, like the pack of feral kids, even seemed okay
(like the crazy Kung Fu kid who came from nowhere in "Cabin Fever") because Roth
openly embraced the wackiness.

Gore was not that well done, but was suitably moist and in your face when needed
and a strong vibe of essential sadism ran through the movie. Could have been
stronger and even more disturbing...but then it would not get released outside
of Internet geek sites. let us not forget the environment (and the money that
goes with it) Roth is working in.

Nice to have some good honest (and very nice thank you) T & A on display for
once in a mainstream horror flick and the eastern Europe seting made for a
welcome change and the sets were atmospheric.

Loved the scene where a spot of 'the native language' seemed to work the trick
for a potential helpless victim....only to result in nothing more but a gag!

Overall it was not all it could have been but was better than most tries at
Exploitation we get from Hollywood although not in the league of "The Devil's
Rejects" or "Wolf Creek" because unlike "Creek" it sometimes played it too
'crazy' and far fetched.

But generally it was good, nasty, bloody entertainment with some nice atmosphere
and quirks. We just need rather less dip-shit characters to cheer for Roth!!

Damn weird but nice to hear a re-mix of "The Wicker Man's" 'Willow Dance' song on the soundtrack too!
