One thought on “Around The Web – October 5th 2006

  1. Perhaps calling it Hostel: Part II is a hint of the direction they’re taking, by which I mean that maybe HORROR WUNDERKIND Eli Roth is planning a Godfather: Part II style structure for his film.

    The new sequel-y story will run alongside sepia-toned prequel-y flashbacks. The continuing story will be about boobs, obviously, but also people being maimed, killed, etc. Also, gay jokes. The flashbacks will show how the torturing building that was not the Hostel of the title was established. In a metatextual twist, the inventor of said not-Hostel will be played by director and FUTURE OF GORE AND SHIT, Eli Roth. You may remember him from his role as ‘Faced!’ guy in Cabin Fever.

    I, for one, like this idea. It is the future of horror. Also, sequels. This will be the next Part II to win an Oscar, I’m sure.

    P.S. Sarcasm alert.
