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.

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?

Orlando Sentinel
Top Critic

Roth's dark humor and lacerating view of human weakness sometimes suggest George Romero; what he lacks is Romero's stubborn belief in personal morality.

Both nubile females and alpha-male douche bags are on the receiving end of pain (that's supposed to nullify accusations of misogyny, is it?), but really, we're all the victims here.

Eli Roth's Hostel: Part II is an authentic real-world creep show -- better, if anything, than its predecessor.

Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

The movie is almost totally devoid of suspense, which is one of the marks of a true exploitation film. Why waste time with a bunch of false scares and tension, when you can go straight to the pain and suffering?

Hostel: Part II offers more hard-core horror and an even more outspoken message [than the first].

Audience Reviews for Hostel Part II

Sequel to Hostel, Hostel 2 is pretty much the same film as the first one except that it's less uninspired, instead of being Guys back packing in Europe; it's Women who are the victims. The only decent scene that had genuine terror is when the rich business men, place bids on their potential victims, I thought that was well done, but as far the film goes, it fails to live up to effective standards of horror, and ultimately is just the same film as the first except they switched the characters around. Hostel 2 is a failure and I think that it should have gone straight to DVD, because really this is one bad sequel and doesn't offer anything new to add to the story of the first one. Hostel: Part II simply doesn't work and I thought the film was pretty boring to be honest. This sequel was very predictable and if you've seen the first film, then you'll know how this one will turn out. This is a poor sequel and one that really isn't worth watching. Though the first Hostel was good, this one was terrible. I don't see why they bothered making the same film twice. I think the filmmakers could've at least tried a little harder than this to create a decent sequel. However this is not the case. If you're looking for a horror film with originality, then skip on this sequel. This film is far from original, and it's a mess from start to finish. However if you're looking for a film that lacks anything original, then this is the film for you. However, stick with the original. This one was simply awful.

What a masterpiece! As a fan of realistic horror gore films, this is the cream of the crop. This film reminds me very much of Salo - 120 days of sodomy, but much more enjoyable. Contrary to some critics i thought the first film was good in principle but the plot holes made the whole thing unrealistic and laughable. The people employed to attract fresh slaughterhouse recruits seem more professional in this sequel. It is rare for the sequel to surpass the first film but in this case it does. The gory sequences are not overly long or gruesome, thanks to most tools not being cordless! The strong message in the film is about what predicaments you could find yourself in by trusting strangers too much, something happy go lucky tourists are all too keen to do, but then we cant spend out life wrapped in cotton wool. The contrast of extrovert and introverted tourists is also very clever, as it makes no difference when you take a chance. Bring on hostel 3.

[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Since I have a bit of a soft spot for Eli Roth despite a few of his dissapointing ventures in the past I had to give Hostel: Part II a chance at redeeeming him as a horror film maker. Not only did this unnecessary sequel fail to live up to my low expectations but it turned out to be something a lot worse than I had planned for. A long time ago when Roth made his debut with Cabin Fever I thought he had some real directorial talent. But recently he's gone cynical on us and has started wasting his time on making stupid Hostel movies that honestly had no reason to exist in the first place. I was hoping that Hostel: Part II would correct the flaws of the first one which to be honest could have been fairly straight forward. The film takes half of it's running time to complete the set up and get to the gore, and although there's slightly more gore than the first one it doesn't add up to much. The first half is completely boring but worst of all it looks like a remake as opposed to a sequel because there are countless amounts of scenes that look extremely familiar. All that does is make it that much more boring and predictable. Roth has yet to make one feature that is remotely adequate. His best film Cabin Fever had it's strong points but it also suffered in various places. Hostel inherited the same problem. But Hostel: Part 2 is just stupid, self indulgent, repetitive and boring and almost completely free of any redeeming features.
