Following Jigsaw's grisly demise, Mark Hoffman is commended as a hero, but Agent Strahm is suspicious, and delves into Hoffman's past. Meanwhile, another group of strangers are put through a series of gruesome tests.
Three female college students take a detour from their partying, enticed by a beautiful European woman who promises seclusion, safety and maybe even romance. What they get is a living hell where they are sold to the highest bidder who's fondest wish is to kill them slowly. Hostel 2 also follows 2 American men who, on the flip side of the coin, are willing to pay to join an exclusive club where a life will end at their hands...any way they like. It's a story of human monsters and the almighty dollar as only Eli Roth could tell it. Written by

During a torture scene, Roger Bart says, "I'm fucking Hercules!" Roger played Young Hercules in the Disney movie, Hercules (1997). See more »
While Lorna is suspended upside down her feet are clearly being held by thick cuffs designed for suspending a person in this way, however when a close up of her feet is shown she is supposed to be bound by some thin rough looking rope. This obviously would not have been possible to film with the actress actually hanging by such a thin rope as the weight of the human body hung by the ankles in this way would have caused injury to the actress.

Hostel 1 & 2 After I heard friends mentioning this I finally watched it. I thought it would be a cult classic horror movie, but man, this was horrible. Though the beginning was better on Hostel 2 then it was in Hostel 1, Hostel 1 beginning is a soft porn movie with no plot, it's there just to kill off the first 30min so they can call it a movie. Hostel 2 had a smoother beginning with no pointless sex-scenes and 'some' character development.
The fact I think this movie is one of the worst is because of the special effects, and the fact that the writer obviously have no clue what he is writing about either. We are meant to believe that two guard dogs eat and bite a man into little pieces. Seriously? Are you kidding me? Were these some kind of alien-mutated-killer-dogs?
And the ending is so clichéd, it's like they run out of budget and just thought about making the ending a pointless head-chopping and call it a day. PS: Good luck chopping off a head with one swing, never going to happen girl.
I really don't know why Quentin Tarantino let them put his name on this either, Tarantino fans will get disappointed.
Lastly, movies like Evil Dead, Braindead or Bad Taste, these movies are all good because they are meant to be cheesy and gory. They even have that "Comedy" in the keywords, but the fact that Hostel 1 & 2 are meant to be serious "Horror", "Thriller" movies just makes them a laughable effort at trying. I seriously exhaled and said to myself "Yeah, right..." when I saw the dog-scene, it's actually laughable.
