“Terrible referred to truly horrifying things like the movie Showgirls or giant squid-things that leave you sincerely wondering how they could come into being on the earth as we know it.” This is a quote from John McWhorter’s book The Power of Babel a linguistics book I started reading last night. I really had no idea that this glib and hysterical comment would be useful just the next day. Add to that, I never thought I’d see a movie worse than Hannibal and you get a perfect …

I'll admit it: I'm biased. I should have never gone to see this movie. I hate gorey horror flicks. However, I do try to find some redeeming quality in every movie I see. I'm enough of a movie buff to be able to appreciate the score even if I hate the movie, or appreciate a small cameo appearance when the main characters all make me want to punch someone.     Hostel has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The plot line is predictable in a way I haven't witnessed since the last …

Pros: ...     Cons: ...     The Bottom Line:   "Just scream   let the voices out, lord   Just scream   Let the voices out"   ~Tom Cochrane         This was a fairly disturbing film that I can only qualify as ‘slasher flick'. It wasn't horror, although it was certainly horrible in mannerism, and it isn't monster, although it serves up several two-legged monsters …

(To the tune of The Eagles' Hotel California)     In a dark Slovak hostel   Free love fills the air   Warm heat from the spa steam   Heating guys everywhere   At night there's the disco   But no shimmering lights   When you get dizzy and your legs get weak   It's time to stop for the night   There they stand in the doorway   All but ringing a bell   And he was thinking to himself …

Hostel
Amsterdam, one of the funnest places in the world. Where better to begin our trip? Paxton (Jay Hernandez) and Josh (Derek Richardson) are two horny young men vacationing through Europe with new friend, Oli (Eythor Gudjonsson). Staying in a hostel in Amsterdam and accidentally locked out after curfew, they are invited in through the window of a neighboring house by an oddball named Alex (Lubomir Bukovy).     Alex tells the young men of a hostel in Slovakia where the girls will …

I remember hearing that this movie was so scary and disturbing from a friend of mine. That it is one of the first real creepy movies of the 21st century. I am here to tell you that this is the one of the dumbest and low grade movies I have seen in a long time. As a matter of fact I was laughing out loud at how stupid it was. I honestly don't care if Quentin Tarantino's name is attached to this movie "Hostel" was awful and dreadful. Now the R rating has its merit, there is plenty of gore, language …

I didn't like Hostel. The premise is frightening. The idea of being drugged, kidnapped, tortured, and killed by people who are paying to do it, is a great concept for a film. It's just too bad that the movie couldn't decide what it wanted to be.    It starts off like "Eurotrip" or any number of cheesy teen sex comedies. Lots of nudity and a number characters acting idiotic and giddy, in a fake atmosphere. Scenes in dance clubs that don't look realistic. Anyway, this goes on and …

"Hostel" is quite a step up from "Cabin Fever" for writer/director Eli Roth. He seems to take his characters and their development quite a bit more serious than in his previous effort. I actually felt some attachment to Jay Hernandez' character once he realizes what's happening in this tale. With that said, however, I wouldn't rank "Hostel" among the top thrillers or horror flicks in the genre.    First off, just having a lot of gore and blood pumped on to the screen doesn't …
