RENOWNED director Quentin Tarantino presents Eli Roth's Hostel, the follow-up to the writer-director's hit debut, Cabin Fever. More grisly than Roth's first feature, Hostel is a mixture of many of the most terrifying things about human nature and the world at large, culled from many impossible-but-true stories of human trafficking, international organised crime, and sex tourism. Relentlessly graphic and deeply disturbing, the film is likely to shock even the most hardcore horror fans.Hostel tells the story of two adventurous American college buddies, Paxton and Josh, who backpack through Europe eager to make hazy travel memories with new friend Oli, an Icelander they've met along the way.Paxton and Josh are eventually lured by a fellow traveller to what's described as a nirvana for American backpackers - a particular hostel in an out-of-the-way Slovakian town stocked with Eastern European women as desperate as they are gorgeous. The two friends arrive and soon easily pair off with exotic beauties Natalya and Svetlana. In fact, too easily...Distracted by the good time they're having, the two Americans quickly find themselves trapped in an increasingly sinister situation that they will discover is as wide and as deep as the darkest, sickest recess of human nature itself - if they survive.
