Has anyone seen this? DP got a copy of it and we watched it last night, well he did, I got up and walked out half way through, it really was the most disgusting film I've ever seen, I like horrors don't get me wrong but this crosses the line, it is just so graphic its untrue.

Didn't help me being emetophobic though Grin

Yes I've seen this too. A bit unreaslistic we thought although a friend of ours said that he heard that the film was based on a true story! Very unsettling if that is so. When the 3 guys first arrive at the hostel my dh and I kept saying "what's the catch?!" If you didn't like the first half - the second half was more graphic! Not sure if it has done very well at the cinema?

The phrase 'most disgusting film I've ever seen' works on me every time. This has now shot straight to the top of my must-see list.

Not as graphic as the attack scene in "Hill Have Eyes" remake - Usually not much bothers me in a film but I nearly walked out, I was almost sick - just so you know, involved included pg woman, small baby and so on - very very disturbing.
By the way, thought Hostel was quite good :)

Hostel truely was the most horrible film I've seen. I saw it about 3 weeks ago and it still keeps creeping back into my head. At one point I was actually wretching over the seat in front. It was a good job I hadn't eaten before we went. Its the sort of film that makes your heart pound and your ears whistle. You cannot believe what you are seeing!! I also heard it was based on a true story. Funny thing was, it was based in Bratislavia and Easyjet have just started cheap flights there aimed at stag nights - the mind bogggles. Bet they don't sell many flights.

I know it was horrible wasn't it? I really could not watch all of it as I am emetophobic, god knows why I watched it in the first place as I had this uneasy feeling about it from the start.

I have read a couple of reviews of this film and there was a thread on MN recently about the offensiveness of a poster advertising the film whcih was very near a primary school .
Just out of interest, what is the point of films like this one ? I haven't seen it but am I correct in thinking it is just a load of torture and abuse?
just wondered what people felt was the point of a film like that.

Thats why I stopped watching it, I saw no point to the film.....directed by a man and it shows !!

DP thought it was okay and his Dad wasn't repulsed by it either.....quite strange I think
