Movie Summary

Director:
Eli Roth
Released:
2006
Rating:
R
Hostel is the second horror film written and directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) released in 2006 by Lions Gate Films. Produced by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), this grisly shocker tells the tale of three unsuspecting college students backpacking through Europe looking for kicks who are made privy to the ultimate revelation: in the furthest reaches of Slovakia exists a hostel bursting with sexy girls who just go wild for traveling Americans. Falling for the bait hook, line and sinker, the trio journeys there by train, only to discover the hostel is actually a torture emporium for those rich enough to pay the high price to have their uninhibited violent ways with captured travelers. Soon, the only one left alive of the trio, the formerly lascivious Paxton, (Jay Hernandez, Quarantine) must fight his way out of the bowels of the hellacious torture prison and try to reach civilization to warn the world of what shocking acts are occurring in the faraway corners of the world.moreless
