Hostel Part II

(USA, 2007, 91 minutes)

Three art students in Rome go to Slovakia for the weekend and fall prey to a deadly underground ring of wealthy sadistic killers. More of the same as the 2005 original, with a victim gender switch (girls instead of boys) and added irony and exploitation-movie smarts making it a more tolerable (but no less unpleasant) experience.
