About the Movie

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 calculated outrages of Eli Roth's brutal exploitation film prove less shocking that its relentless bigotry. – Nathan Lee, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Portrayed the way Transylvania was in a 1930s vampire film, with lascivious beauties intent on seducing and drugging their unwitting American dates so they can be fed into the machinery of recreational death. – John Anderson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Eli Roth turns to modern-day Asian fright filmmakers as inspiration for his latest blood-soaked effort while demonstrating an intriguing, original voice of his own. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, 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

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.
