Hostel (2005)
« on: March 06, 2018, 06:31:06 AM »
Eli Roth's controversial second horror film definitely doesn't hold back on gore or unsympathetic characters who get what's coming to them, but it doesn't quite hit the peak of what makes a movie great, despite excellent scenes of brutal torture.

What say you on this violent horror flick that shocked a generation?

I remember when seeing this in theatres that it ended up turning into a pretty decent thriller by the end, once you manage to get through the torture stuff. And you really root hardcore for the guy towards the end for him to give back some torture of his own.

Been a long time since I've last seen it though, so would probably need to watch again before adding my own review.

For it's flaws, I think this movie worked out pretty well. I think I prefer the second one, but at the same time, I think I'd give both movies around 7.5/10 (which, for me, is just above average).

Updated my review.

Still a 7.5/10.

Solid film. [*thumbsup*]
