“Hostel: Part II” makes referral to Elizabeth Bathory

Directed by Eli Roth and produced by Quentin Tarantino “Hostel: Part 2” hit the theaters in June 2007. In the story which continues where “Hostel” left in 2005, the victims are American girl students this time. Three art students; Whitney (Bijou Phillips), Beth (Lauren German) and Lorna (Heather Matarazzo) meet Axelle (Vera Jordanova) in Italy and with her recommendation they take their last holiday trip to Slovakia. It doesnt take much longer for the group to find themselves in the midst of trouble. The main difference of the sequel to the original is the story is not only told by the view of the victims but the clientele. More about the “Elite Hunting” club is revealed comparing the first movie. Maybe that’s why the film editors say that Eli Roth didnt leave much to tell in the next installment. Then there are others who claim that this movie is much more fun but less scary. Besides the film expects to surprise the viewers with an unexpected ending. “Hostel: Part 2” harbours a surprise for the vampire fans too. Eli Roth who joins the cast as a “cut off head” added the movie a scene called “Mrs. Bathory”. Do you think that Roth could even direct a new movie on Elizabeth Bathory in the future?
