Hostel (2005)

Directed by
Eli Roth

This grisly horror movie from acclaimed director Eli Roth is guaranteed to send a shiver down the spines of even the most hardy movie fans. Starring Jay Hernandez and Derek Richardson as American backpackers Paxton and Josh, Hostel (2005) provides a sobering lesson in why venturing off the beaten track isn't always the best of ideas.

After befriending Oli (Eythor Gudjonsson), a fellow sightseer from Iceland, the three men hear of a Slovakian hostel filled with beautiful women who will fulfil their every desire. Immediately deciding that this is the place for them, the group make their way there and, as promised, they are greeted by a pair of local beauties. The group are treated to pampering, partying and passion in equal measure, and at first it seems like they've stumbled upon their dream holiday destination.

It's not long, though, before things start to turn nasty, as one by one the travellers are abducted and dragged off to a blood-stained torture chamber in the countryside. Inside, wealthy businessmen are given free rein to do whatever they please to the array of helpless prisoners... and Paxton, Josh and Oli are next.
