Critics Consensus: Featuring lots of guts and gore, Hostel is a wildly entertaining corpse-filled journey -- assuming one is entertained by corpses, guts, and gore, that is.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hostel is a 2006 horror movie in which a pair of American college guys backpacking through Europe in search of sex, drugs, and alcohol find themselves in a gory nightmare of sadistic torture. This is absolutely not for kids. The premise and primary "plot" is torture -- specifically, the torture of young travelers by wealthy adults who pay thousands of dollars for the experience. These images are graphic and bloody (severed limbs, penetrated genitals, sliced Achilles tendon, gouged eye, with weapons including scissors, chainsaws, knives, hammers, drills, clippers, guns, cars, and chairs). One character throws herself in front of a train when she sees her disfigurement following torture. These violent scenes are preceded by a sojourn in Amsterdam featuring bare breasts and one frontal nudity shot. Characters engage in boisterous sex, and a man makes a homosexual pass at an unwilling young man. Characters smoke, drink, and do multiple sorts of drugs. Characters use frequent foul language (over 100 uses of "f--k," derogatory terms like "f--got").
