Anyone seen this movie? It looks pretty screwed up.

Never heard of it. What's it about?

A Clockwork Orange is one of my all time favs too. Go see Hostel and write a review on Yahoo movies about it.

seriously though...

nah, i like movies that are sick, twisted, gruesome, sadistic and generally vile and unnerving, that get Utah all hot and bothered. I mean let's see here, favorite movies include: A Clockwork Orange, Apocalypse Now (pref. the bloodier and more drugged-out redux), Suicide Club (aka Jiatsu Circle), Battle Royale, Sexy Beast, The Salton Sea, Hamburger Hill, American Psycho, Platoon, Elephant, etc.

Thank you, my life is enough like a Mentos commercial as it is, and I have enough sweet romance crap to make it like She's The One... so... I prefer to throw some BLOOD, MISERY, and HUMAN SUFFERING and UNADULTERATED SADISM into the mix.


Your Twisted man etiher way im not a hardcore movie fan i only see movies when im forced too but still i am not twisted that i would want to watch that ****

I'm not bothered by any amount of gore or violence, but I don't see any point in watching a violent movie just for the sake of violence. If there's no respectable character or plot development in a movie (or even a few awesome action scenes) I don't consider it worth my time.

I have a suspicion that the more physical pain someone has actually felt the less likely they are to be bothered by watching other people get messed up.

Sweet, your review and Theo's (because I trust Theo over most humans) will make or break my choice on whether to see it. :D

I saw it the other day. There are like 4 parts that are somewhat gorey, but I definetly recommend waiting until it comes out because it sucks! The acting is terrible..for example..thsi guy gets 2 fingers cut off and hes walking around like its just another day in life. Its dumb.

Random trivia- if you lose a couple fingers quickly and don't see it happen you might not even notice it because of the shock. I severely doubt it's possible with a knife, but there have been cases of men losing an entire hand to a .50BMG slug without realizing it.

Yup. My dad got a huge cut from a piece of glass the size of a playing card once and didn't even feel it until half a day later.

I'm with pony, I love horror films, and films that are just downright twisted. of course, there has to be a plot to it, otherwise it's boring, but I've got no problems seeing peoples eyes fall out of their sockets, and then having them pick it up and squeeze it so all the juices explode everywhere... yeah, I'm a sick twisted freak. so what?

btw, haven't seen saw II, but saw the first one (most of it.. I fell asleep for like 20 minutes of it) it was a pretty good movie, good plot to it. overall pretty good. nothing amazing, but still pretty good.

I like movies like the butterfly effect (despite having ashton kutcher play the main character.. eww..) and the jacket. movies where you are like "wtf is going on?" and then at the end you finally understand and go "ohhhh!"

the ring one and two were some pretty good movies, the exorcism of emily rose was pretty good, but could have been better if it wasn't based on a true story, then they could have put in a better ending... for example: everyone dies!

I saw the devil's rejects, and wow, rob zombie is a sick twisted freak! which is totally awesome! alot of the blood was digital, and the acting was mediocre.. but some of the ideas and images in the movie were downright disturbing! which is why I liked the movie.

I can't think of any others I've seen recently, but I'm sure there are some. I do plan on seeing hostel. perhaps take a girl to go see it with me (horror movies are best for first dates.. cause then they get scared.. and then you reach over and hold their hand. yeah, good stuff.)

oh yeah, anybody seen crywolf? was it any good?

****Standard Spoiler Warning - If you are going to see the movie and haven't already... quit reading****
I've seen Saw I, Saw II and Hostel. I've also seen many of the old Italian gore flicks which are the best if you're into gore. I'm not a gore fan myself, but I'm glad someone is finally doing away with fake injruy effects. If you're going to show a guy getting shot, make it look real. Anyways, Hostel was a two part movie 1st part is soft-core porn. 2nd part is gore. If you like either one, go see the movie because there's lots to be seen. No one in the theatre I was at puked, passed out or went psychotic. So I think that one women who did pass out probably was either hypoglycemic (sp?) or had forgotten to take her medication. Hostel starts off with a bunch of guys slumming it around Europe looking for sex. They stay in Hostels (thus the title) and have fun getting drunk and upsetting the locals. It takes a good while before there is actually any violence. Although when you finally do see it, it's original. The one guy out of the group of 3 gets taken to someplace. You don't get to see where he goes, but suddenly he's sitting in a dungeonous place like Saw I only more industrial. He's bound to a chair with a big collection of sharp objects around him. The guy that's come into the room wearing something like a guy handling sulfuric acid would wear, or maybe if he was slaughtering cows all day, that kind of outfit. So he picks up stuff and the guy is shaking and pisses himself. The madman picks up a drill and it's the first thing he uses on the guy! They go straight for the femur so to speak on this one. I won't say where the guy uses the drill but it's pretty much anywhere but what you'd expect. Then the guy is screaming for him to let him go and the guy says ok. But first he takes out a knife and cuts the guys achilles tendons. Nice way to go huh, then the guy trys to get up and walk!!!!! :eek: and of course his foot starts pulling away from his leg.... So in brief the rest of the movie goes along as each of the three guys gets pulled into the same place except for the last guy who escapes. This movie isn't scary so much as it is interesting. If you can get past the gore, there's some interesting thought process going on here from the writer and director. For those of you who got to see Saw I or II and wanted the bad guy to get it in the end, well Hostel takes the "bad guys" and annihlates them. It's almost funny at times.

Wow, man thanks for telling me, seriously. Now I definitely won't watch it.

I can't watch that s**t. I left during the chainsaw massacre, ha I'm such a loser. I like films that make you think and have great, psycological plots, like seven, magnolia, identity and the butterfly effect (- Ashton :rolleyes: )

Personaly I think most movies nowadays stink, hardcore. There is enough foreshadowing in them you can't be scared. At least for me anyway. I think the problem comes from watching scary movies as a kid. I think Jaws was one of the scariest movies I've watched but then again I was only 8 or so the first time I saw it so it had a big impact on my little mind. Watch Jaws now and you think, man how lame, that shark is soooo fake. The point I'm getting at is now I'm 31, and it's harder to be scarred. There isn't really anything that surprises me in movies anymore. The last movie I watched was House Of Wax. It was a decent film but the ending stunk.

I saw Hostel the night it came out... and needless to say I was dissappointed. I went in expecting there to be all these scenes of people torturing people and there being such a large amount of blood and gore that it would make out to be a decent horror flick... It reminded me a lot of Saw 1 and 2 because both of them seemed like they were going to be scary but they ended up being more of a thriller than horror movie. I'm not going to give away anything about the movie... but if you pay attention to the trailers you already know whats going to happen anyway... The first 30-40 minutes of the movie is nothing but 3 guys partying... there is no violence whatsoever in the first half of the movie... and its a short movie at that... There are only 2 or 3 scenes of torture throughout the movie... but there are some pretty sweet deaths in the final sequence of the film... I would reccommend it to anyone who liked saw 1 and 2... and to anyone that wants to see a movie but doesn't want to watch what is currently out... otherwise don't waste the 20 dollars for you and a date... and rent it in two months. I would have to say that the biggest draw to the film was the fact that Tarentino put his stamp of approval on it by co-producing it...

It was a good movie but it just didn't live up to the hype for me.
