With the second appearance of Eli Roth in our 31 Days of Halloween October listings, Hostel is a splattertastic inclusion which still terrifies on multiple viewings.
Three American college students are enticed to a hostel in Slovakia, with the promise of beautiful women by a fellow traveller (or so they think). They’re thrown into the nightmare world of the Elite Hunting Club, who pay a lot of money to torture and kill travellers in dungeon-like rooms.
It’s horrible, it’s gory and it’s Eli Roth. You know what you’re getting with Eli Roth. Some parts are hard to watch but there’s always some very dark humour in his movies too.
