I just got done watching Hostel. Now before I tell y’all my opinion I want to let you know that I absolutely love horror movies, the gorier the better and I absolutely hate the writer/director Eli Roth (who also directed the suck fest Cabin Fever) but I gave this movie a chance. I went in with an open mind. OK here it goes.

First half of this movie is basically soft core porn, bad soft core porn I might add. The second half is a mediocre horror movie. It doesn’t seem as if Eli Roth has an original thought in that little head of his. Pretty much a Saw and Next Of Kin rip off but without the disturbing element. Why oh why does everyone keeping saying how gory and scary this movie is?! It has very little gore and I shit scarier things then this. Please Eli Roth, I am begging you, stop making movies! You have knocked the horror genre down a couple of pegs.

There must be some other people out there that feel the same way has I do!

    It totally bummed me out. They don’t make horror movies like they used to. Nothing Hollywood has offered in the last 10 years has scared me one bit. I thought this one looked REALLY promising, I was so excited to see it. But alas, it sucked, and I should have known. I too, can’t stand Eli Roth and didn’t notice his involvement, as crazy as that sounds.

    cabin fever was totally ridiculous. i couldn’t believe all the hype. i heard it was great, it sucked. this time, i’ve been told roth is the next best horror director of the universe. i guess that means it really sucks.
