Quentin Tarantino Presents Eli Roth's 'Hostel: Part II'; On DVD Oct. 23
Filled with gut-wrenching intensity and presented by Quentin Tarantino, Hostel: Part II arrives Unrated on Blu-rayTM High-Def, DVD and PSP™ October 23. Just in time for Halloween, the horrifying second chapter follows the exploits of two clients (Roger Bart and Richard Burgi) of the murder-for-profit business as they spiral deeper into its chilling and depraved world. The Unrated DVD and Blu-ray™ disc boast additional torture sequences, and both formats are loaded with special features including four featurettes - the making of the film, the gory KNB-created effects, the fear-inducing design and revealing interviews with Eli Roth. Additional features include a Blood & Guts Montage, 10 Deleted Scenes, Elvis Mitchell's "The Treatment" Interview with Eli Roth, an international television special, and Cast and Crew commentaries with Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino and others. The Blu-ray™ version offers the film in blood-curdling 1080p high definition detail, and the 5.1 channel surround, 48 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio sends shivers down the spine.
Last January, writer-director Eli Roth terrified moviegoers with the blood-drenched Hostel, which catapulted to the top of the box office charts and became the first number one film of 2006. Now, Roth picks up where he left off, and goes deeper into the darkest recesses of the human mind.
In Hostel: Part II, three young Americans studying abroad in Rome set off for a weekend trip when they run into a beautiful model from their art class. Also on her way to an exotic destination, the gorgeous European invites the co-eds to come along, assuring them they can relax and rejuvenate. Will the women find the oasis they are looking for? Or are they poised to become victims for hire, pawns in the fantasies of the sick and privileged around the world who secretly travel here to savor more grisly pursuits?
With Hostel, Eli Roth cemented the cutting-edge credentials he earned with his debut feature Cabin Fever (2002). In Hostel: Part II, Roth invites fans to take another frightening trip where suppressed urges - once unleashed - have chilling consequences. Presented by Quentin Tarantino, the film stars Lauren German (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Bijou Phillips (Almost Famous), Heather Matarrazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse), Roger Bart (TV's Desperate Housewives), and Richard Burgi (TV's Desperate Housewives).
