HOSTEL 2 Update and Synopsis

Eli Roth became a hot commodity six months ago with the release of "Hostel," a demented, depraved, delightfully perverse flick dreamed up over several months of hermit-like seclusion. Naturally, when it came time for a sequel, the manic 34-year-old told MTV News six weeks ago that he was determined to "unplug [his] phone, shut off [his] e-mail and write the script"

This week, Roth briefly emerged from a Howard Hughes-like exile to storm the MTV Movie Awards, an appearance so last-minute that someone else's credentials were hanging around his neck.

While sneaking a long-overdue peek at the light of day, Roth was all too eager to offer his fans some details.

"I shaved today for the first time in three weeks because I haven't left my house — I've been working on the script for 'Hostel 2,' " Roth reported. "I don't think 'Hostel' is gonna be winning any Oscars, so it's nice that we got a Best Frightened Performance nomination for Derek Richardson."

Those who've seen the movie will remember Richardson as the dude who gets his Achilles tendons sliced open. Because of that and the ensuing bloodiness, let's just say that Richardson wouldn't be the best person to ask about sequel possibilities. Roth, however, is looking forward to his second chapter.

"I'm writing 'Hostel 2' for girls — it's going to be three girls this time," he revealed. "They're studying in Italy for the summer, and they get lured, and they go back to ... well, we're going to go back to a lot of familiar places."

Through the existence of this Italian hostel, Roth plans to reveal that the Slovakian stopover from the first flick is actually part of a chain — kinda like a Motel 6, but with decapitations instead of a continental breakfast.

"It's all part of the organization; they've got the whole thing set up all over the place, and they have different scouts," Roth said. "We're going to learn a lot more about how it all works. In 'Hostel 2,' you're really going to see the ins and outs of the whole organization and how they get people and kill them.

"And there will be plenty of blood and torture," he added with a sadistic grin. "I can tell you that."

"Hostel" didn't leave a lot of actors' story lines open for sequel possibilities, but Jay Hernandez did survive — at least, most of him did. Roth happily reported that Hernandez's Paxton has been written into the film and will be encountering the three girls in Italy.

"Jay has a few less fingers, so it might be difficult for him to blend in," the director said. "But yeah, he's not out of the woods yet."

Roth's script begins the moment the original "Hostel" left off, a tribute to the similarly timed second chapters of his beloved "Halloween" and "Porky's."

" 'Hostel 2' is going to start literally with the next cut, and you're going to see [Paxton] at the same time. You'll see that he's totally messed-up from the experience. It's completely wrecked him, and his life is in ruins."

Hernandez will express his mental collapse in some of the tossing-and-turning scenes Roth is composing.

"You know, when they have a sequel, and you see the guy and he's having nightmares and can't sleep and is going crazy," the filmmaker said, sounding as if Hernandez might finally turn into the villain Roth wanted him to become in an early draft of the original flick.

I'd love to see him combine the humour from Cabin Fever and inject more of that into this next installment.

I hate these hollywood phony types who try to be twisted for the sake of being twisted as their claim to fame...

I think alot of horror flicks go for the full gross out cuz they lack ideas on how to build up the big scare in other ways. That was my only major qualm with Hostel 1...

In many ways I have a personal preference for 'mind fuck full of surprise horror', instead of me sitting in front of the screen making squeamish faces.

Hostel was rather lame, not enjoyable at all
And its not like I don't enjoy horror movies or gore

Why lame? I've heard both sides, and I'm a big fan. I think it's that Eli Roth does a lot of tongue-in-cheek stuff, where the horror is sort of absurd and self-referential. He mixes that in with a lot of high tension scenes and for me, that's a great combination. I think I like Cabin Fever more than Hostel though.

I didn't think Hostel went for cheap thrills at all. It had a decent story that unwove its self really well. I thought Hostel was great because it didnt try to hide its gore and terror behind some kind of convoluted plot. It didnt try to mask anything.

It was tounge in cheek while keeping the clever suprises in line with the story telling.

I liked Cabin Fever so much I bought my own copy, thought it was alot of fun, especially the pancakes scene... perhaps it sounds ironic considering I was just dissing gore. I suppose I should reframe and say that I like gore, but not as much as the whole mind fuck element. Am curious what you mean by self-referential... I know little about Eli Roth.

i just saw the new trailer for HOSTEL 2

i dont ussually get in on the argument of censorship....but i don't think this movie is very responsible.

it just seems to go too far (not in the gruesomeness of the murders, but the perversion of the mentality behind the murders.)
like, why make a movie where the target market is the scum of the earth? you just know that every serial sex murderer from this day forth will have a copy of this movie in their apartment when they get arreested bt the police.

i am not for censorship really...but i am not fond of assholes making movies like this.

i am not worried about it corrupting the minds of the young, i am upset that it is candy for the already corrupted fucks out there that hurt and rape women.
