It was impossible to have visual contact with the enemies , so the radio was the solution , just hearing the static of the radio would make me nervous.

As for Hostel, I dont think its just pointless gore and brutality! It actually does have a story!


Supposedly it is based on a true story. Not sure how accurate that is, but there are definitely places in this world where one can buy anything. Especially in some asian countries and ex-soviet block countries, sex slaves are common and no one asks what you plan to do with them.

LOL..I saw that movie with my niece (late twenties, a vet tech, not a child) and she freaked out big time. I had to tell her "calm down its just a movie!" because I was getting a bit embarrassed by her squeels and loud comments in the theater (and she is a quiet, shy type, not the kind to disrupt others in a movie theater).

After the movie she told me she was NEVER going to visit Europe if that is what they do to people over there. LOL.

Someone mentioned Wolf Creek (browser messed up, can't find the original post).

Yeah seriously...that is the only horror flick that was TOO graphic for my tastes. The depictions of violence were way to real. I did not enjoy it at all.

I understand horror films with a plot like aliens (they had to survive and get away from the alien)

But noways we have movies like hostel where it is just mindless pointless killings that are so sick and twisted im amazed human minds think that way and find it entertaining.

i watched the first part of hostel was like a soft core porno but when the guy started cutting the tendetns i turned it off and never looked at the title again at the video store.
(aka pirate bay)


not true at all actually. Hostel was made in tradition of Japanese extreme cinema. It's a homage to it. (notice the Miike cameo?)

Soft core porno? That's like saying Friday the 13th had too much teenage affection. Get over it, it's an American horror film! The glory of them is violence & titties!! That's the real joy of it all, especially teenage slasher flicks.

Please do your homework. Cheers !

Hostel was not based on a true story. Tarantino got inspired by an idea on a site he saw about the same theme as the business in Hostel. It was just a hoax though.
But human trafficking is Very real which does kinda relate to the film.

Also Hostel is about pure fantasy. The main characters are paying for Their pleasure. However, others are willing to pay for a different kind of pleasure.

It's really about Lust and Fantasy.

Yeah, it is about lust and fantasy. Especially Hostel II (the sword/blood/bathtub scene). It makes murder and mayhem fun, sexy, amusing. My favorite type of horror film.

ye after i made this thread i quickly read everyone elses posts and i suppose most horror films are about entertainment rather than about blood and gore

but there are still some films out there that make you so scared and so disturbed for days on end and its those films like saw and 28 weeks later that i cant stand and think to myself why are those type of films there.

but i still think that those films are there to influence you and to tap into the subconscience part of your mind and sure it will actually made some people more nicer and make people less violent but it still would reach other people in a negative way and make people do awful awful things.


I have a feeling you'd enjoy the Guinea Pig series.

I would find it entertaining just to see these folks here who say that they enjoy this sort of thing, in a real blood and gore situation, with the bad guy chasing them.
That would be real entertainment. And I would like to talk to them afterward. Uh.... like when they are leaving for their appointment with a trauma councellor.
Or
would they be so desensitized that they could be on a clean up crew calmly picking up shattered pieces of human bodies? Surely they would find great entertainment at being right there in the real?

Originally posted by kerrichinits exactly the same as saying marilyn manson made people go out and shoot loads of kids with his music.
how many people listen to manson and how many got out and shoot people afterwards.


Marilyn Manson got a lot of flack after Columbine happened. People blamed him for it. What a lot of people don't realize, because they didn't bother reading anything about the shooters, was that they didn't even like Marilyn Manson. They would buy his CD's only to go home and destroy them. That's how much they hated him. Both shooters listened to Rammstein and anyone whose ever seen that group perform, knows there's nothing violent about a guy that does gymnastic moves on stage. A lot of their music is also anti-hate/violence. They couldn't place the blame on Rammstein because of that, but were more than happy to place it on Manson even though the shooters hated him with a passion and didn't keep it a secret.



thats what really annoyed me i listen to both manson and rammstein and i never have any thought s about killing or harming anyone at all especially rammstein they actually chill me out

And why are you assuming that none of us have been in a blood and gore situation , or even life threatening?
Now your mixing fiction with reality , a person liking to see violent movies has nothing to do with the shi# that is happening in the world.
Hell why not blame soap opera or love novels the culprits of crimes of passion by turning people into extremely emo persons that just want to kill themselves or kill their loved ones.

IMHO the scariest films are ones that don't actually show a lot of blood and gore. Also, the ones that leave it up to you to imagine how the person was killed.

Think about these movies:

The Exorcist - The only blood you ever see is when she has the cuts appearing and even then you barely see it. Unless you watch "the version you've never seen" edition with the spider walk scene.

John Carpenter's HalloweeN - The only blood you ever really see is when Michael cuts Laurie on her arm.

The Original - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The most blood seen in this movie is the last scene showing the girl in the back of the truck. It's also the perfect example of what I mentioned above about leaving it up to you to imagine how a person is being killed. The scene where the girl is forced to watch Leatherface kill her boyfriend. You never actually see him doing it, you just see her reaction and that tells you how gruesome it is and IMHO is more scary.

thats so true, i also think supence movies are more scary, ones that make you jump for stupid reasons or with tristed ending.
like secret window or gothika they dont really show much gore but they keep you thinking

The movies are pretend, they are ENTERTAINMENT. What about other mainstream movies? Do you think people that watched Titanic wanted to drown in an icy ocean? Or people that watched Schindlers list wanted to be massacred in a concentration camp? Or people that watched Saving Private Ryan wanted to be gunned down during WWII?

Horror movies are typically far far more fantasy based than many real life blockbusters.
