HOSTEL 2 footage from SXSW Horror Panel is Online!

Hey folks, Harry here - this clip was first seen at SXSW 2007 during the horror panel that I moderated - and it was a nice clip - sort of showing some of the changes that we'll be seeing in perspective in HOSTEL 2. Focusing on the killers perspective as well as the victims. Why people would pay for this, etc. And how about that end device - pretty awesome. Eli Roth couldn't make it to the panel because his cough began developing blood splatters like those that indicate consumption. Our wishes and hopes go out to Eli, to wish him well through his brave battle with this tragic illness. Get well Eli!

    That was just kinda dropped in there by Harry. Get well, for sure. Hopefully it hasn't gotten to that point, but best wishes from this fan.

    Eli Roth?

    by Gwai Lo

    I thought it would be stupid to make a Hostel sequel

    by JacksParasites

    But the more I think about it, there's interesting territory to explore. Like, it'd be cool if the whole movie was from the perspective of those guys coming to do the killing. It'd also be cool if late in the film, there was footage of Jay Hernandez escaping, suggesting this was happening at the same time as the first film. But the torture room didn't look like it could possibly be in the same place as the first film. All I'm saying is, if it's just a pointless movie, it'll be like every other stupid horror sequel, but if they continue to intelligently explore the idea of exploitation, I'll be happy.

    anybody transcribe the panel?

    by ewoklake

    or recorded it...?

    No Viewing For Me

    by Mad-Maximus

    I refuse to watch the Hostel 2 clip as the first one should have been premiering on the Sci-Fi Channel. It's a shame there are so many talented directors out there. The torch has now officially been passed on from Uwe Boll to Eli Roth.

  • March 14, 2007, 8:40 p.m. CST

    Harry, WTF?! Is Eli actually sick?!?!?!

    by Womb2dooM

    What's with the "coughs up blood" shit tossed in there? How about a bit of substance to that end of the article. I think his genuine fans deserve it!

  • March 14, 2007, 9:26 p.m. CST

    Eli is in fragile health and unable to travel.


    our prayers are with him.

  • March 14, 2007, 9:50 p.m. CST

    ELI - GET THE FUCK BETTER!!!!!!!!!

    by Womb2dooM

    Eli, that guy asked for our help. We lit him on fire. And when you get better we can rail that girl in the coma. That IS legal in Australia.

  • March 14, 2007, 10:30 p.m. CST

    Get Well, you twisted fuck.

    Hostel III should star Jennifer Love Hewitt

    by Darth_Gonz

    Because I believe that Eli Roth is the only man alive that could convince her to show the world her tits and quit being such a fuckin' cocktease. Also, maybe he could give her some advice and tell her that she isn't as great of an actress as she thinks she is, and that the "skin to win" motto still holds water in Hollywood. I mean shit, it worked for Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet.

  • March 14, 2007, 11 p.m. CST

    PS: Get well Eli, you rapscallion, you!

    by Darth_Gonz

    And please take into consideration what I posted above. :)

    eli has cabin fever

    by roccotheripper

    how ironic

  • March 14, 2007, 11:35 p.m. CST

    Consumption? My God, it's not the 1940's

    by AlwaysThere

    Woah there Harry.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:35 p.m. CST

    Is he really seriously ill?

    by Toxic Frog

    I thought Harry was making some Cabin Fever joke excuse for his non-attendance. I hope he gets better quickly. He gives me hope for American horror.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:47 p.m. CST

    GET WELL ELI ! But before you do...


    could you spit in rob zombie's Evian?

  • March 14, 2007, 11:50 p.m. CST



    Please take into consideration what Darth_Gonz posted above.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:57 p.m. CST

    Thanks for being there AlwaysThere!

    by Womb2dooM

    I had no idea what Harry was talking about when he said "consumption". You see I was born after the second world war where that word ceases to have meaning. So when people uses terms like "mass consumption" is that some kind tubercle pandemic?

  • March 15, 2007, 12:34 a.m. CST

    Balls, Eli, get well soon.

    by darth jobu

    You got what that gal from Moulin Rouge died from? I'll drink some absinthe fer yez. Ciao!

    that snippet is dangerously tasty. Jobu

    by lionbiu

    just saw the clip........nothing interesting. It could be a good concept to look at the other side of the killing...but I have no trust in Eli Roth's supposed directing talent.

    Hostel 4 - In Space

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    That has to be where this is headed, and I would possibly watch that one. A bunch of space marines taking some R and R are off looking to hook up with some that Arcturian poontang ("Yeah, but the one you had was a male!")and they find themselves being tortured to death by Mugwumps and whatnot. Tortured with light sabers!<p>P.S. Anyone seen Wolf Creek? I thought that accomplished what Mr Roth was trying to do with Hostel much more effectively.

  • March 15, 2007, 4:33 a.m. CST

    I find that candles really set the mood

    by BannedOnTheRun

    Some nice bayberry scented ones and a power drill.

  • March 15, 2007, 4:44 a.m. CST

    I'm no doctor...

    by Happyfat73

    But I do know that coughing up blood is a sign of some pretty serious shit going down inside. Never a good thing.

  • March 15, 2007, 5:56 a.m. CST

    I bet he's faking

    publicity stunt !

    Not A Fan But....

    by Mad-Maximus

    ....even though I am not a fan of his features I would still like to say get better man.

  • March 15, 2007, 6:37 a.m. CST

    Where'd I leave my "Gotta torture a co-ed" mask?

    by BannedOnTheRun

    Ah, there it is! Right next to my "Gotta take a shit mask." This promises to be a fascinating exploration of human motivation.

    Something tells me that was the best scene in the movie

    by beastie

    I loved Hostel, but the best and scariest scene in it was the one with Rick Hoffman in the changing room. I just have a feeling the scene with the two guys jogging is this films version of that. I really hope that we see more of them because what made Hostel scary wasn't the blood or gore or threat of death, but the exploration into the idea of what makes someone want to do something like that.

  • March 15, 2007, 9:52 a.m. CST

    Now I feel bad...

    by Childe Roland

    ...for wishing soemthing horrible would happen to Roth so that he couldn't direct anymore. Partly because he's very sick now and I'm feeling guilty that god may have actually listened to me on this one. And partly it's because he apparently fell ill too late to prevent him from making this shitfest.<p>I hope he gets mostly better soon, but never well enough to set foot on a movie set again.

    Make the naked chics sit on a giant pyramid and split

    by kinghenryVIII

    'em in half! With rocks tied to their ankles ripping apart the "V". <p> Sorry - doing some research on the Tower of London and came across piles of tirture devices. <p> This will still be a "renter" at best. Jollies will not be gotten by me over the slow mutialtion of dumb broads. Other then that - get well Eli!

  • March 15, 2007, 11:58 a.m. CST

    David Eli Roth


    So thats why he didn't show up to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame...

  • March 15, 2007, 12:03 p.m. CST


    by landocolt45

    Eli is probably got hepatitis or something like that. All kidding aside I hope he is ok. He needs to make a Rotten Fruit movie. Did anyone see that movie Sublime yet? Very terrible.

  • March 15, 2007, 12:21 p.m. CST

    I second the motion for a ROTTEN FRUIT movie


    Couldn't be any worse than another pointless remake.

  • March 15, 2007, 12:32 p.m. CST

    NOT to be overly persistent

    by 12-GAUGE

    But what's the deal with Eli being at ShoWest, being too sick to travel, etc.? Just curious on his status.

  • March 15, 2007, 4:02 p.m. CST

    Fucking fuck fuck

    by mr.underwater

    fuck fuck fucking fuck<br> I absolutely hate when dialog is written like this. Not that I have anything against the word "fuck." It just seems, well, really written and not natural. I mean, when was the last time you actually heard someone squeeze the word "fuck" eight times into one sentence?

  • March 15, 2007, 4:36 p.m. CST

    I just have to wonder...

    by cornponious

    ...who in his right mind would actually pay money to see this shit?

  • March 15, 2007, 6:33 p.m. CST

    Re: Fucking fuck fuck

    by DickButterworth

    @mr.underwater - when was the last time you heard someone discussing their plans to murder someone? Perhaps the natural dialogue of going to the store and buying milk is slightly different than the tone and language used when discussing carving up another human being. Something to think about.

  • March 16, 2007, 2:08 p.m. CST

    he's not just going to kill someone

    by mr.underwater

    he's going to fucking kill the fuck out of fucking someone. I have a friend that had a job where he was required to read lots of scripts. One of his rules was that if the first ten pages had as many "fucks," stop reading. Really, it just takes you right out of the scene.<br>Anyway, I know exactly what the guys are talking about, there are some people who I just know have committed murder. Like my dad. He killed a lot of people in Korea. And boy, does he chill your shit when he walks into the room.
