Hostel 2 Pics

May. 27, 2007by: Ben Barna
Did anyone notice that as soon as the uptights of America started complaining about gratuitous torture in this (lackluster) season of 24 about one third into the season, the torture suddenly vanished, as did the shows gusto? It goes to show people, never compromise, or the work will suffer. But theres good news for all you torture-philiacs: Eli Roths HOSTEL 2 is just about two weeks away from release (June 8), and for those of you who really cant wait, Lionsgate has provided us with some publicity stills from the film, which are available BELOW. Most of these are pretty tame compared to what well see in the film, but I doubt Lionsgate is about go releasing publicity images of girls getting their tracheas torn out. Click on the pics to ENLARGE.

Extra Tidbit: I'm going to see HOSTEL 2 for the nudity, not the torture, because that's how I roll.

Yeah 24 was the suck this season besides the 4-hour opening, the episode where Fayed bit it, and the episode where Jack and Nadia kicked Chinese ass in CTU

And I have to agree

I am in 100% agreement with you about 24. This was the most uneven season of this show ever. Not nearly enough "gratuitous" torture. Hey, if Jack Bauer needs to torture you, you fucking deserve it.

nudity

I too will see Hostel 2 for the nudity because that's the part of the movie where I'm smiling. I like to smile.

in brief...

admittedly, I have not seen HOSTEL. Nor do I have any interest. I know that Eli and QT are really big into using the grindhouse films of the 70's and 80's as inspiration, but unlike GRINDHOUSE, I just don't see the appeal to watching people getting tortured for 90 minutes, even if it does become a revenge flick. "Torture Porn" is a very appropriate label for this genre, because that's why people see it.. to get off on watching long and gory scenes of very disturbing shit. Hence films like

Hence films like TURISTAS and CAPTIVITY and now HOSTEL II. I just think that Eli is a more imagntive guy than this. I really liked CABIN FEVER, and I hope that he goes back to making more original fare soon.

Wow, I had no idea that so many people hated "Hostel." I mean, I'd heard the label "torture porn" kicked around a bit, but passed it off as the whiny bitching of a bunch of wussy rom-com fans. Guess it's more than that. Eh, whatever. The first "Hostel" was one of my favorite films of last year, not for the gore (of which there was surprisingly little), or the nudity (although it was quite welcome), but because it went from being a random exploitation film to **SPOILERS** a sweet f*cking

Come on, two guys get beaten to death by little kids! Does anyone actually think that wasn't funny as hell? **END SPOILERS** Anyway, concerning "Hostel 2," I think that, with the ending of the first film, a sequel is completely unnecessary. However, since it's already a done deal, they'll get my eight bucks. Just hope they don't f*ck it up ...

I fully support Roth, and I know he could do a really great horror, but so far he seems stuck to the idea of "Gore = Good, More Gore = Best."

Great point about Danse Macarbe, too, Somnabulist.

Gore and torture does not a horror make. Anyone read Danse Macabre, by Stephen King? Great read if you're into the genre, and the man is a legend. But he's completely right when he says that going for the "ewwww" moment, or shock tactic, is the least effective way to terrorise your audience. It comes down to the simple fact that although Hostel is one of the goriest films ever released, many would agree that it is certainly not the scariest.

But Roth is still a champ, and the boobs take

But Roth is still a champ, and the boobs take some of the sting out of the boredom of relentless gore.

Hostel is one of the worst movies in history. And Hostel II will be even worst. Terrible shit for idiots.

''for the nudity'' ??

sick. very sick. that is why HOSTEL sucked the fat one. im very hesitant about even going see this one being that people were so PSYCHED UP about going see HOSTEL only to find out, there was barely anything scary / horror about it.
