I haven't read every review of "Hostel," but from what I have read, I don't find a reference to Quentin Tarantino, who serves as one of the executive producers. Tarantino loves switching gears mid-movie, and that's exactly what this film does. Also, Greg Nicotero, famous for his make-up expertise in some George Romeo "Living Dead" films and the hit TV show "The Walking Dead", serves as the special makeup effects designer and creator. It comes down to this: If you don't enjoy plenty of T&A for the first half of a film, and torture and some gore during its second half, don't bother. But if you do...... "Vodka and Red Bull."

A bore for half the movie until the torture and the plot kicks in. But you don?t care for any of the characters and the torture of hostel is way too short considering that is the selling point, and most entertaining, part of this movie.

At it's core it's about losing your purpose in life due to the inherent violence of humanity. It doesn't always communicate it's point as well as it possibly could, but it manages to balance it's horror and absurdist black humor well enough that for those who are able to stomach it's gore it's definitely still worth the watch.

Hostel is not a scary movie, it's just plain disgusting.

I watched Hostel 1 to 3 on Amazon Prime back to back on same day. Part 1 sets the stage for you. Part 2 is a direct sequel to Part 1 with little twists, and part three is stand alone story with even more unexpected twists in the story. Super explicit nudity, gore and violence.

After watching this in the theater, I was called a sick bastard by the girl I was dating because I told her I liked it. It's still one of my favorite horror movies today.

A good horror film but overhyped. Didn't think it was any more gory than most other recent horror films. Seen far more gore in many low budget horrors.

Gore porn without any semblance of substance really isn't my bag...

Pretty cool horror movie built on an interesting concept, very violent and gory, but lacking in character building.

Great horror film with good acting and lots and lots of goes just the way I like em. Love Eli Roth special effects.

The Film Makes The Audience Very Uncomfortable.... I Do not want to travel to foreign countries after watching this film...The Main Character was very likable, and his friends were very.....detachable... not as gruesome as i expected... but it is different.. and a very likable title.

soo gross and pointless

"Hostel" offers plenty of graphic scenes of sex and drug use followed by torturous violence, but next to nothing in terms of compelling characters and plot. Then again, true fans of the splatter genre won't really care.

I was more pleased with the first then the second. One of the few times I've seen this kind of gore in a film. I found it to be at least a little realistic. Good enough for me to watch the 2nd part.

The first half is a bad porno, the second a brutal dismemberment, and the whole of Hostel just isn't up to snuff.

Gore, guts and corpses, pure Eli Roth! Not bad though...

This movie is the definition of "torture porn". It's only saving grace is some decent acting and some pretty scenery.
