Yeah, go figure, they’ve already finished making “Hostel 3” and it’s already being scheduled for a direct-to-DVD release later this year. Who knew? I suppose going straight to DVD was the obvious choice. After all, it’s not like the whole “torture porn” stuff has died out about two years or so ago or anything.
The film follows the series formula pretty closely, and this time the killing and mayhem is set in Las Vegas, with another batch of unwitting participants in a “how much will you pay to kill his dude” game. Well, not so much a game, more like an auction. Rich people and free time, am I right?
High stakes gambling takes on a sinister new meaning in this third chapter of the terrifying HOSTEL series. While attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas, four friends are enticed by two sexy escorts to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture, where members of the Elite Hunting Club are hosting the most sadistic show in town.
The trailer, despite boasting the “Hostel” franchise name, doesn’t even mention Eli Roth, the creator and director of the first two movies, once. I guess this means he’s not associated with the sequel whatsoever, either by choice or he was bought out.
Scott Spiegel (“From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money”) steps in to direct, and the film stars Thomas Kretschmann, Kip Pardue, John Hensley, Sarah Habel, Barry Livingston, Skyler Stone, Brian Hallisay, and Kelly Thiebaud. Basically, no one you’ve ever heard of, thus the low direct-to-DVD budget.
