Hostel III Happenings

Hostel III on the way! (click for larger image)Okay, by a show of hands … who is ready for more tourists getting sliced up because they meandered into the waiting clutches of foreign psychos? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Bloody-Disgusting got word earlier today that early talks have begun on the next sequel on the block, Hostel III, and franchise creator Eli Roth will not be writing or directing.

I don’t know about this one. I’m in the minority here, but I liked Hostel and Hostel Part II. Part of what made them work was Roth’s insanity. I fear putting the series in someone else’s hands will turn it into just another quickie torture-porn fiasco. Then again, maybe new blood will breathe some new life into the flicks. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Stay tuned for more as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I thought that Hellraiser III was pretty cool…completely different from the first two, but still pretty cool. As for Hostel, first one was good. Second…..not bad, not GREAT, but not bad…maybe I’m just getting tired of the torture porn finally…maybe there should be a supernatural element to them now, something like…the hound tat is an ancient evil logo that summons the dark god Dataum of Golgotha and forces the people who wear the tat to kill other people violently by sawing off their eyeballs while making them listen to Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” 37 times in a row. Then, they Jazzercize on the corpse in a frenzy ala Richard Simmons’ Dancing to the Ghoulies!

    Sorry…I kinda lost it there for a second.

    I think it should be set in an American hostel where, rather than being tortured and maimed, the hapless heroes just come down with a bevy of nasty STDs.

      Buz can star in it.

  • Nomad

    Or it could be animated…

    I liked the first movie because it was so unique, had some great boobies and I really got into the characters… I liked the second because it was over-the-top and fun, had a great fem-on-fem torture moment, and a very, VERY memorable ending (*shudders*).

    However, I agree with Impure159 – I do not see where this franchise can go. My fear is that H3 will simply be a ramped up version of more of the same. I am glad that Roth is not involved, as H3 could benefit from some new perspective and blood (no pun intended).

    You know, this could be one of the best entries in the series – like “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors” – or it could be one of the worse – like “Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth” – or it could be a completely radical departure – like “Halloween 3: Season of the Witch”.

    I liked the first one, although that probably has to do less with the movie and more who went with me to see it.

    The second wasn’t all bad but I don’t really see where the series can go now, I’m not that excited about a third but I’ll probably see it.
