Hostel: Part II

Hostelpartii Similarly gory and exploitative as its torture-porn predecessor, writer/director Eli Roth’s horror sequel is nothing more than a makeover of "Hostel" substituted with female characters. Roth fumbles with an overlong set-up that introduces three female American art students travelling in Europe when they’re sidetracked to Slovakia by a foreign beauty promising to take them to the best natural spa in the world. The spa is, of course, a ruse for kidnapping the girls (played by Lauren German, Bijou Phillips and Heather Matarazzo) and transporting them to the old "killing factory" where wealthy clients bid on which girl they will brutally murder with a wide assortment of power tools and knives. The centerpiece of the movie is an erotic bloodbath that hits a new watermark for lesbian necrophilia.

Rated R. 94 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
