The premise isn't bad; I like the fact this hysteria happens in and around people's homes, because it's an excuse for the filmmakers to uncover secrets normally kept behind closed doors. A pity there are no great revelations here.
Just like Cloverfield this movie is filmed in first person camera which I hate so much but this movie isn't as bad and the storyline keeps you interested and on your toes. I would Highly recommend this movie to all Horror fans out there. You will not be disappointed!
It embraces every clich in the epic-movie playbook, relies too heavily on stale dialogue delivered in somber tones and offers little to its actors besides the opportunity to fashion some great-looking Eurasian costumes.
As a thriller it's solid three-star tension. As a Samuel L. Jackson showcase it proves a man can only coast through so many motherfuckin' or milquetoastin' turns before having to display his full and overpowering talent.
Wow I just want start out by saying what an Incredible Film!!!!!!! Eli Roth Sure knows how to make a Scary Horror movie that Pushes the Envelope in terms of Violence. Hostel Is a must have for any horror buff that loves a scary movie with a great plot incredible acting and a Huge amount of Gore.The plot to this fantastic film is basically as follows these three Backbackers go to a Hostel in a Foreign country. They are really just about meeting women and having a good time with them and by a good time a really good time.So what they are un awar of is the people who own this Hostel are really really evil.They get lured outside of the safe zone one by one they get drugged and kidnapped and then taken too this creepy Hostel place where Really sick Rich men Mostly Business men pay to Torture them and then unfortunatly kill them.All but one of the Backpackers avoids capture untill he makees a grave mistake and gets brought to the Hostel not drugged but FULLY AWAKE. He sees this sick man with the dead body of his friend Josh. And realizes this Woman who brought him here along with everybody else are out to do him harm.In the end though he has the last Laugh.He manages to escape the Hostel Luckily and rescues this Girl Kona.But she sees herself in a mirror and just cant bear it so she just gives up on life.This movie is great it has a Stunning picture Quality that you normally see with old Horror films.
This movie has some of the most Realistic Gore effects I have ever seen so coming from a guy like me thats saying a lot cause I see a lot of horror films and I know what looks reall and what looks fake
and the more beleavable a scene looks the more convincing it is.If you are the type of person that cant stand gore this is not the film for you. Even if you can stand gore it might be still too much cause of all the torture scenes in this movie but if you can handle that along with all the harsh language and nudity you will realize that beneath the dark surface of this movie is quit a Beautiful Motion Picture of a film.Eli roth is iin my opionions one of the best horror Directors out there along with of Course George A Romero.I love films that make you wonder could sometthing like this happen? In this case yes Because Eli Roth said in the Special
Features of this film that he got the idea for it out of stuff he saw on the internet. Freaky right? So this film has plenty of special features I love the directors cut version of this film its the must buy edition if you are gonna buy this movie.I like that in this movie unlike in a lot of horror films the Director didnt have all the cast members killed off most are killed off but there is a survivor.This film is one of Eli Roth's best films yet I find it Scarier and Gorier then Cabin fever. It has a better plot then that film to. This film is one that you will want to watch with the lights out so in order to get the true edge of your seat experience that this film delivers
Because if you watch a horror film during the daytime the effect is less scary I find.I am dissapointed that I had to wait at least 20 minutes on into this film to see the Gory stuff but I guess thats what Suspense is all about.This movie has such a big budget look to it. I like how this film starts out in this happy everythings perfect bright and shinny world but then it winds up
going to a dark scary dungeon place where its really just Survival of the fitest at this point. I first wondered when i first saw this film who will survive and what will be left of them?I like this movie just as much as SAW. They are in alot of ways very simalar films.This a film that makes you question how far will Directors push the envelope in terms of violence but whats great anbout America I find is Freedom of Speach thats why we the audience gets the uncut version of this film that
we so Rightfully deserve. My favorite part of this film is when the Backpacker that gets out alive gets revenge on the sick man that killed his friend in the Bathroomm stall That scene is really Gory and very well done. I like how last but not least this film has two ending two choice from.This is a really dark and scary horror film but if your into that like me and now the differene between fantasy and reality this is a must own movie.
