A tight-fisted slow burn that whacks you in face with two or three really horrifying sequences.

There are some grisly deaths gore hounds would approve of, but the focus is more on the motives of the murderous pervs and the inner workings of the snuff corporation.

This second film definitely shows Roth's absolute courage as a director. He didn't pull any punches with this follow up.

The lasting effect of all three of Eli Roth's films is a certain kind of Grand Guignol "Punk'D", in which the "mark" is not only embarrassed, he's also cut to pieces.

Roth's satire of fright junkie male castration fears and feminist castration fantasies, mandates that you're going to have to have your cock and eat it too, whether consumed live during elegant dining to the sound of opera, or by killer canine pets.

...marks a substantial leap forward in terms of [Eli Roth's] directorial abilities.

Hostel: Part II does succumb to mere ghoulishness in the last-reel bloodbath, but up to that point its moral tension feels horribly persuasive.

Any blood here is pumping straight to the brain. Hostel: Part II is astute and subversive, its wily sexual politics paving the way for a killer climax. Significantly raising his game, Eli Roth has crafted a sequel to die for.

All the realism of an abbatoir.

The emphasis on the wealthy 'hunters' who run and patronize the death club suggests a gorehound revamp of 'The Most Dangerous Game'...

Generally speaking, I hate horror films. What surprised me most about this is that it's more than just torture porn, it's actually a real movie with, like a story and some acting, and cinematography and stuff like that. Who knew?

For the first time, [Roth's] sense of humor doesn't undercut the unsettling nature of the material

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

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?

And there's Bijou Phillips, reputed to be one of the craziest beeyatches in a town that grows them like arrest warrants on Tom Sizemore.

Roth is not you're run of the mill schlock horror director. He's smart, and his films are clever works of nastiness.

...an improvement over its predecessor in that Roth keeps the tone more consistent and gives us more likable heroines, but we're all still waiting for Roth to bust out a truly genre-defining film.

When it comes down to it, Hostel Part II is the near perfect sequel, a money mandated continuation that actually works as a companion piece to the original effort

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