Plot Summary

Two American college buddies Paxton and Josh backpack through Europe eager to make classically hazy travel memories with new friend Oli, an Icelander they meet along the way. They are eventually lured by a fellow traveler to a particular hostel in an out of the way Slovakian town stocked with Eastern European women as desperate as they are gorgeous. The two friends arrive and easily pair off with two exotic beauties. Initially distracted by the good time they’re being shown, the Americans quickly find themselves in an increasingly sinister situation that they’ll discover is as wide as the vast web of post-Communist government corruption and as deep as the darkest, sickest recess of human nature itself – if they survive.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film is too casually misanthropic and enamored of its expulsive prosthetic virtuosity to be politically relevant, and it's not clear what response -- shame? outrage? titillation? -- Roth is after. – Mark Holcomb, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Whether or not this kind of horror movie is your cup of tea, you have to at least admire Roth for the daring and creativity with which he illustrates that concept. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The tone is too schizophrenic for the movie to be great, but writer/director Eli Roth is showing serious potential. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Although I spent much of the second half staring into my lap while listening to a cacophony of screams and shop tools, I processed enough of the first to appreciate Roth's sinister evocation of a Slovakian provincial town. – Jan Stuart, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

the best

where is the 2nd part.

worst movie i have ever seen!

Eli Roth portrays himself as a horror film director that brings rated R movies past their limit, and he fails to live up to his claims. If you want a split second long accidental chainsaw death, a short scene of someone getting a couple fingers chopped off, a deadly toilet swirly, some green eye slime, and an offscreen marrage of junk violence that is implied horribly then this movie is for you.
