    Possibly the most checked film, that's not on any of lists.
    You noticed what's unfair? That American guy killed six people - for free! Looks like the main idea is "you, non-Americans, must pay for the pleasure, and we, Americans, just come and get it".
    And why the hell an American costs as much as 5 Russians? Kinda fascism of the consumer society, yeah? Cheaper race - more expencive race?

    I'd do it injustice by calling it torture porn, though it does share in that genre, it's a bit better than others in the category (not that I watch that stuff). There is a story here, and you don't get to that kind of horror until the third act, just before it actually turns into more of a thriller. The plot focuses on douchebags backpacking through Europe who get lured to a hostel that is a front for rich men who pay to torture and kill people. The theme is human exploitation, using the exploitation movie as a framework. I don't think it succeeds on every level though. The violence, gore, drug use and sex of the genre make the worthy thematic underpinnings of the film especially hard to see on the first viewing. And the twists, while good, do undercut whatever subplots were running. By the time you care for a character, you're into the portion of the film that's making you wince. 3 years 2 months ago
