Sound Destruction: HOSTEL

so I sat down to do a full on 'movie news'* and stumbled upon this german publicity poster for the movie hostel that comes out january 13th. I don't know how many of you are even interested in twisted horror/slasher films but I have to admit I am really looking forward to this one.

not to mention it is "presented" by quentin tarantino.

for those of you that don't know...if quentin tarantino put his name on a movie that just showed a still shot of a venus fly-trap waiting for a fly for two hours with it's climatic ending being that it misses getting the fly...I would probably go see it then wait longingly for the dvd with bonus footage of the fly-trap doing nothing.

as for this the trailer here and tell me you aren't at least a little curious.

what I find interesting is the blurb about "inspired by true events". I have to wonder where all this crazy shit was going on.

ps. the tag line on the movie german poster is "try not to barf."


*the plan is to do a full 'movie news' this weekend so look for it in the next day or two.

Maybe I should rethink my planned backpacking trip through Europe, where I planned to stay at several inexpensive youth hostels?

You're looking forward to a film about a scruffy looking guy swallowing a drill? Sounds vaguely like a porn movies to me.

I like Quentin Tarantino's stuff, sometimes and sometimes not.

This looks too scary for me. But I do look forward to movie news. We love the movies. Especially off beat ones. Just saw Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. Very good. Not scary.

Nedhead, just remember to bring your own drill. And remember the adapter.

Hey! My comment from this morning isn't here. How'd that happen? What I said was something along these lines...

Right. You want me to watch a twisted horror/slasher preview with the tagline "try not to barf". ;)


Strider really is a huge Quentin Tarantino fan and has been for the longest time.

I'm curious, too.

Will be awaiting your review.

I like the concept; but the scariest thing here is how large they made Quentin Tarantino's name, when everybody knows that "presents" simply means he paid to have his name put on it for publicity (ala Wes Craven and Dracula 2000).
