Movie: Hostel

6.5 out of 10 stars for this little piece of work. The 'horror' parts of this movie were pretty gruesome (and I do mean GRUESOME). It was a glorified bloodbath.

This movie reminds me a lot of 'Cabin Fever', however. Like that movie, this one tried to mix extreme horror with occasional comedy. Sometimes it worked well, sometimes it didn't. Overall, I'd have to say that 'Cabin Fever' was definately better done.

Also, it took WAAAAY too long for this story to take off. The first 30 minutes of the film were spent in over-gratuitous sex scenes. Now, granted, that usually isn't a problem for me, but come one! Enough was enough!!
