Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
3 backpackers are in Amsterdam where they get locked out of their youth hostel. They are invited into a man's house where he tells them of a hostel somewhere in eastern Europe where the women are all incredibly hot and have a taste for American men. When they get there, everything is too good to be true - the hostel is "to die for"Written by
Eli Roth directed the film with the idea that it would get an NC-17 rating, and that he'd have to then pick and choose edits in order to earn an R rating. To his surprise, the MPAA review immediately gave "Hostel" an R without demanding any cuts. Roth did make a few minor edits afterwards but these left the most extreme violence and gore intact.

(at around 1h 27 mins) When the bad guy walks into the toilet at the end, all signs should be in German. Right above the walkway is a sign that says "Kabinky" which is Czech and Slovak. See more »

Sets the bar for gorey horror flicks
A real gross out horror brought this sub type of genre to the masses. Its not with out its issues and I do genuinely hate parts of the movie however the brutal effects it creates are awesome. The plot is simple and works well enough I can't fault it there. This movie is the ultimate gross out horror it won't be for everyone though. If you squeamish avoid watching!
