Hostel (2005) ★★½




Three backpackers head to a Slovakian city that promises to meet their hedonistic expectations, with no idea of the hell that awaits them.


Checking another one off of my most disturbing watch list, where I put to test the films that have been ranked by others as most extreme. Hostel took a while to get going, but once it did, it caught up.

Hands down, my favorite part of this movie was the introduction of Rick Hoffman as The American Client. “Fuck this, too fucking American, I’m going fucking old school…!!!” Quite possibly one of my favorite scenes in any horror movie due the shift change and Hoffman’s jacked up performance. “Who wants this, motherfucker, who wants this shit?!” An extra half-star for this scene alone.

Unfortunately, the rest of the film was a little sparse. Plot holes and too neat of an ending.

Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)
