Hostel: Part 2 ★ 2007 (R)

You can add (or subtract) your own bones to the rating, depending on your appetite for torture porn. Roth out-does the gross and gore of his original, and switches his victims to the female gender, also making them slightly more sympathetic. American tourists Beth (German), Whitney (Phillips), and Lorna (Matarazzo) wind up at a Slovakian hostel where scummy businessmen pay top dollar to turn their snuff fantasies into reality, with Sasha (Knazko) the operational mastermind (and ripe for leading further sequels). 94m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, Heather Matarazzo, Vera Jordanova, Roger Bart, Richard Burgi, Stanislav Ianevski, Jay Hernandez, Jordan Ladd, Edwige Fenech, Milan Knazko; D: Eli Roth; W: Eli Roth; C: Milan Chadima; M: Nathan Barr.
