On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
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

After the girls check into the Hostel, the clerk takes their passports, and e-mails the details to various bidders. However, the pictures all show the girls smiling; standard passport rules do not allow smiling or other facial expressions. See more »

I saw the first Hostel movie and thought it was just bland tripe with poor acting and characters you couldn't care less about.
I heard through the grapevine that Hostel II was an improvement from the 1st so I was curious to see if it was the movie that the first one should have been.
how wrong I was.
What we're given is more or less a complete re-working of the first film. the only difference I could spot was that the 3 main characters are females this time around.
Queue the bad acting, pathetic dialogue, clichéd characters with no depths, and what do you get? another bad movie courtesy of Eli Roth.
Why Tarantino decides to use his name for these awful movies is anyone's guess. Perhaps he thinks the Hostel movies are America's answer to the amazing Australian movie "Wolf Creek" (which, by the way, is one of Tarantino's favourite Horror movies of all time). If this is what he thinks, he couldn't be more wrong.
I can safely say this is the first, and so far only, DVD that I've had to skip through scenes to see what happens. Very disappointing.
I can also safely say I will never watch another movie that has Eli Roth's name in the credits.
