Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Three female college students take a detour from their partying, enticed by a beautiful European woman who promises seclusion, safety and maybe even romance. What they get is a living hell where they are sold to the highest bidder whose fondest wish is to kill them slowly. Hostel 2 also follows 2 American men who, on the flip side of the coin, are willing to pay to join an exclusive club where a life will end at their hands...any way they like. It's a story of human monsters and the almighty dollar as only Eli Roth could tell it.Written by

For the scenes in the brothel that Stuart and Todd visit, Eli Roth was keen to film at a genuine brothel in Prague and eventually decided on Big Sister, which was famous for offering customers no charge for sex with the prostitutes, which would normally include fellatio and vaginal sex as well as kissing and licking on the women's bodies (including breasts), as long as the men wore a condom and agreed to live Internet streaming of their activities, which were viewed by paying subscribers. On his solo DVD commentary, Roth suggested Hostel fans should subscribe to the Big Sister website and watch the videos. The brothel closed in 2010 and the website is no longer active, but several videos from the place are easily accessible online for free, including Amateur Czech Babe - Hardline and Czech Out This Babe - Hardline.

(at around 24 mins) After the girls check into the Hostel, the clerk takes their passports, and e-mails the details to various bidders. However, the pictures all show the girls smiling; standard passport rules do not allow smiling or other facial expressions. See more »

The German theatrical version (based on the R-rated version) is rated FSK 18 and is cut by ca. 2 minutes. On DVD, two version were released: The extended version (based on the unrated version) with a SPIO/JK approval is cut by 7 seconds and misses the throat slashing scene. And the theatrical version (based on the R-rated version, the only home video release based on that version) which is cut by ca. 2.5 min. See more »
No thrills or chills in this brutal but weak sequel, another reason to stay at the HOLIDAY INN
Much like it's predecessor "Hostel 2" starts out in Eurpope where three art students are drawn to Slovakia, but their trip isn't all just fun in the sun. The girls soon meet their fate when they arrive at the hellacious hostel where people are taken to a remote facility to be tortured and killed by the highest bidder. Roth does a decent job picking up where he left off, sad thing is the first wasn't GOOD! There are no new tricks here and nothing Roth hasn't already attempted before, sure the gore is halfway decent but it fails to capture anything near scary. Truthfully there is no point at all in this crummy sequel the people haven't gotten too much smarter and the gore isn't a tad gorier, and don't even think once about jumping because Eli doesn't even get around to building the gumption to thrill. Not with all the other directions he can go. Overall forgettable, do yourself a favor and rent a classic horror movie where the director attempted at least ONCE to scare. **
