In the Words of Summer Roberts...

"Ew, you haven't seen hostel 'til you put me up in one." (click on link for video) I believe this could easily be the logline for Eli Roth's new movie, Hostel. Perhaps it is and I'm just not in the know. Regardless, Summer Roberts would probably vomit after seeing half the scenes in this movie. That being said, it was awesome. Some hilarious dialogue, shot really well, and a lot of hot Eastern-European chics. Oh, and again, pretty disgusting. Note, you have to take it for what it is: a horror flic trying to entertain by shocking the hell out of you. And I don't mean shock, as in artistically-revolutionary shock, but rather the 'that is so wrong i am laughing out loud' type of shock. This film is by no means 'genius'. It's just fun. And I appreciate that Mr. Roth kept it at fun-level, rather than taking things too seriously. The plot's a bit weak at the end, and with stories of people getting physically ill and storming out of screenings, I was oddly disappointed that the movie wasn't more disturbing? Granted, I spent most of the film peering through my fingers and looking down at the floor, but in retrospect, after all the hype, it wasn't that crazy. Maybe I'm numb from all my weekend trips to thrill-kill shops in Slovakia, but it'd be interesting to see the director's cut on DVD.

One thing is for sure: I will not be staying at any hostels in the near future. The movie's website has a list of actual killings that have happened at hostels. And according to this interview, the film was inspired by a website where one could pay $10,000 to shoot someone in the head in Thailand. Note to self: cross off "visit Thailand" from list of "Things to Do Before I turn 30".

Anyways, it did really well at the box office (it was made for $4.5 million), so go add to its funds before the sequel comes out. Here's the trailer. Oh and apparently the director is a huge douchebag. Cheers!
