This is garbage, but its good garbage. A couple of American tourists (Jay Hernandez and Derek Richardson) visit a Slovakian hostel, and it proves to be the worst vacation in the history of man. After partying at a disco, one of them wakes up in a torture chamber, and bad things are about to happen to multiple body parts. The film is quite gruesome and is sure to blow a certain percentage of its audience right out the door before its credits run. (There was a mass exodus at the screening I attended.) Like last years The Devils Rejects
, its a throwback to those grisly 70s and 80s horror films where nobody gave a damn about being politically correct. It goes off the tracks a bit in its final act when it becomes a silly revenge thriller, but its quite decent for most of its running time. Its directed by Eli Roth, the guy who brought you Cabin Fever
. This was not directed by Quentin Tarantino. His name is being used in the marketing, because he dug Roths idea, and thats it.
