Hostel's Eli Roth to make a UK appearance at The Cinema Store
5th Feb 06
Well, the US release of Eli Roth's follow-up to Cabin Fever has gone down pretty well, and Hostel has been gathering quite a few strong reviews, so you can safely say we're looking forward to seeing the movie when it hits UK theatrical screens on April 21st.
If you can't wait that long for a bit of Roth, the director is in London this week for some promotion work for the film, and thanks to FrightFest and distributors Sony Pictures, Eli will be making a special 'meet and greet the fans' appearance at The Cinema Store on Thursday 9th Feb. at 6 p.m. There will be copies of the film's US and UK posters on sale, which Eli will happily sign, so why not also take down your Cabin Fever DVDs for a scrawl too.
Hostel stars stars Jay Hernandez, Derek Richardson, Eythor Gudjonsson, Barbara Nedeljakova, Jana Kaderabkova, Jan Vlasák, Jennifer Lim, Lubomir Silhavecky, Paula Wild, Lubomir Bukovy, Petr Janis, Jana Havlickova and Vanessa Jungova.
The film tells the story of two Americans travelling through Europe along with an Icelandic backpacker they picked up in their journeys. Opening in Amsterdam, the three take time to indulge in lots of drugs, and take time to visit the red light district.
Hungry for women and a good time, they meet a Russian backpacker who recommends a hostel in Slovakia. Taken in by the promise of stunning women who love Americans, they trek off to a small town outside of Bratislava. They find the beautiful women as promised but when one of them disappears they uncover a shocking underground of torture and sadism preying on foreigners there.
