one odd thing about Hostel 2 is that I saw Eli Roth (?) the director
being interviewed on TV and he seemed very interesting / smart, for
example observing that the average horror fan of 16 was ten when 9/11
happened and that the film really is about their fears and their
relationship to modern world etc etc... all of which was interesting,
but i couldn't help but think compared to the really interesting
political engagement of say Cronenberg or Romero movies in the 70s
(Rabid / Shivers / Dawn of the Dead etc) Hostel was kind of simple in
narrative structure and socio-political engagement.
i also can't help but think Hostel & Saw are all based on the first 5
minutes of Se7en.
