Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Three female college students take a detour from their partying, enticed by a beautiful European woman who promises seclusion, safety and maybe even romance. What they get is a living hell where they are sold to the highest bidder whose fondest wish is to kill them slowly. Hostel 2 also follows 2 American men who, on the flip side of the coin, are willing to pay to join an exclusive club where a life will end at their hands...any way they like. It's a story of human monsters and the almighty dollar as only Eli Roth could tell it.Written by

Luc Merenda also came out of retirement to play The Detective. Eli Roth is a huge fan of Merenda's 1970s Italian films such as Torso (1973) and Kidnap Syndicate (1975), and asked him to play the role. Merenda called Edwige Fenech and asked her how she enjoyed working with Roth, and her response was so overwhelmingly enthusiastic that Merenda agreed to do it. Now a successful top dealer, Luc Merenda last was seen on the 1992 television show Edera (1992), starring Susana Bequer, who plays The Translator in the scene with Merenda in Hostel: Part II (2007).

(at around 56 mins) When Beth is first captured, the gun held by the business man is a single-stack .45 ACP 1911 pistol (evidenced by the magazine at the bottom of the weapon). A few seconds later, when the children are lined up, the gun becomes a Beretta with a standard barrel. A few seconds later, when the silencer is attached, the gun magically has an extended threaded barrel (to allow attachment of the silencer). The silencer that was used obviously screwed on, which would not attach to a standard factory barrel. See more »

Creepy gore feast with three girls trapped in a bloody spiral of violence
This creepy picture produced by Quentin Tarantino concerns on three tourists(Lauren German,Heather Matarazzo,Bjou Phillips) and a fourth(Vera Jordanova)touring in a hostel from Bratislava(Slovakia). The story revolves around the three travelers, but they're bidding victims for two bidders(Richard Burgi,Roger Bart) in their current target for dismemberment and tortures.
This second part takes accent as gore with victims graphically mutilated as bloody entertainment. The grisly killings are experienced vicariously by the audience by means of flood in guts, blood, gore as an other movies of this kind.The tale packs tense sequences of hair-raising horror and lots of gore and guts , courtesy of make-up craftsmen, Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero. Juvenile casting formed by beautiful girls: German,Phillips,Jerdanova and initial appearance by Jay Hernandez, first part's starring. Special intervention by Edwige Fenech, a known Italian star from the 70s and Ruggero Deodato(Cannibal Holocaust) as the Italian cannibal. Suspenseful, frightening soundtrack by Nathan Barr and adequate, sinister cinematography by cameraman Milas Chadima. The flick is eerily directed by Eli Roth(Cabin fever). Because the murders are very gruesome , most viewers will be as disgusted as they're feared. Squeamish spectators will must to cover their eyes during a pair of particular horrific scenes and have vomit bags close at hand , though horror fans should be amused. If you thought 'Hostel I'was too violent , this one will redefine the word for you.
