Plot Breakdown for "Hostel 2"

Lionsgate isn't relying solely on the "Saw" series to keep their horror franchise money rolling in. They've recently issued a press release regarding next year's "Hostel 2," which sounds both familiar yet darkly fun.

Thanks to ComingSoon.net for sharing the press release: "Last January, writer/director Eli Roth terrified moviegoers with the blood-drenched "Hostel," which catapulted to the top of the box office charts and became the first Number One film of 2006. One year later, Roth takes us back to where it all began, and deeper into the darkest recesses of the human mind.

In "Hostel: Part II," three young Americans studying art in Rome set off for a weekend trip when they run into a beautiful model from one of their classes. Also on her way to an exotic destination, the gorgeous European invites the coeds to come along, assuring them they will be able to relax and rejuvenate.

Will the girls find the oasis they are looking for? Or are they poised to become victims for hire, pawns in the fantasies of the sick and privileged from around the world who secretly travel here to savor more grisly pursuits?

With "Hostel," Eli Roth cemented the cutting-edge credentials he earned with his debut feature "Cabin Fever" (2002). In "Hostel: Part II," Roth invites fans to take another frightening trip where suppressed urges ? once unleashed ? have chilling consequences."

On board for a second visit to a hostile hostel are:Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, Roger Bart, Heather Matarazzo, and (maybe) Jay Hernandez.

I won't see this because I hated the first one, but I so hope there's a Jay Hernandez flashback to the original Hostel and after it's over he shakes his head.

Does a movie like this have a plot to breakdown?

The first was just softcore porn, so I'm not really excited about this one. If the story has less sex and more violence, then I'm game.

Yah I think they will enrich their lives and learn about Europe rich historical past. I thought Cabin Fever sucked and Hostel just looked like another cheap horror movie with no real point beside gore and some sex. I might see Hostel 2 if it has lots of sex and nudity but they need to make it something other than your run of the mill horror movie which at first glace this appears to be. People remember the classic horror movies from the 70's and 80's but movies like Hostel and Cabin Fever will be forgotten before the decade is over.

[b]Eli Roth is very overrated.[/b]
I have never really heard of that many people that loved his films. I mean there is probably a fanbase of sorts, but it musn't be very big. I thought both of his films were alright, but they don't deserve an overall fresh rating.

I'm not really looking forward to Hostel: Part II.

I thought Cabin Fever sucked. Then I saw Hostel, and thought it sucked even more. Maybe the pattern will continue, and Hostel 2 will be even worse! Yay!

[b]You all are missing the point![/b]
The point is not is Eli Roth is overrated. It is not how much Cabin Fever sucked. It is not how much Hostel sucked. It is purely about $$$$$$. Today's society is so obsessed with seeing people getting killed, dismembered, mamed, or all of the above, that they pay $10 to see. Sadly, we have enough people of this sort that movies like this make some serious cash. Why not make them? It would be stupid not to. If you could dump $3 million to make a movie that grosses over $60 million, it would be stupid to pass that up.
