We didn’t really dig the first one, but word is, the Godfatherly-titled Hostel: Part II is significantly better than its predecessor.
Which is fantastic news cos the original effort turned out to be a triumph of marketing over substance. It didn’t offer anything we hadn’t seen before and, more crucially, it wasn’t scary. At all.
We’re not expecting a huge improvement in the newie, but we like director Eli Roth’s cheeky sense of mischief and god knows there’s been slim pickings on the horror front lately.
So to that end, we’re gonna be celebrating the release of the movie tomorrow with a host of Hostel: Part II hi-jinks over the coming week.
We’ll be running interviews with Roth and special make-up effects supervisor Greg Nicotero, as well as stars Lauren German and D+CFilm-fave Heather Matarazzo.
In the meantime, here’s the trailer to whet your bloodlust. Be warned though – it’s not for those of a delicate sensibility. As Simon Bates used to say: “This clip contains nudity, violence and one use of the word ‘cum coma’.” Gore blimey!
