Did You Know?


The gore seen on-screen is real. It was obtained from a local meat packaging plant, and is primarily pig's blood and innards. The directors actually show picking it up in the making-of included on the DVD. See more »


When two of the survivors are walking up the road towards the end of the movie one says "I can't wait to get back to Colorado." Then he is hit with an arrow in the back which can be seen from the front sticking out. However, when his friend lays him on the ground there is no arrow in him. See more »

The Hills Have made a Wrong Turn with Hostel Chainsaws...
9 January 2009 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews


Another low budget Indie depicting backwood folk whom like to eat unsuspecting (idiot) victims. Not exactly a breathe of fresh air, but at least they shot it in the snow, I'll give'em a few points for that... Writer / Director's Jesse Cook and John Geddes have obviously watched their share of 100's of better films with this same story-line, but figured they'd better make their own (and thank God for that!)... "Scarce" is just that, scarce is any real creativity, originality or acting talent (wait till you get a load of the dinner scene... Duh!). Their big name actor is Steve Warren, whom appears to be making a living as a movie extra, and it shows in his lack of acting ability . In fact, no-one in this film has any acting experience and it shows though-out this unpolished turd. On a good note, the gore is admirable but unfortunately we have to sit through mind-numbing stupidity in order to see it...

Save yourself the aggravation...
