Hostel 2: Eli and Edwige!

No matter what you think of Eli Roth, having Edwige Fenech back on the big screen is fantastic!

Quote from Eli's MySpace:
"I'm 2/3rd of the way through the shoot and I am so fucking psyched with how it's coming along. I can't give away any details right now but I think the fans of the first film are going to love it. I've just put up a photo that's the first photo released from the set. One of my favorite movie stars of all time is the Italian actress/goddess Edwige Fenech, who had many, many hits in the 70's and 80's. She's been retired from acting for ten years and is a big producer in Italy, as well as film distributor. I was fortunate enough to meet her back in February, and when I asked her if she'd ever return to the screen, she said she'd only do it for me or Quentin. I wrote a part for her in the film hoping she'd do it, and she kept her promise.
It was an incredible thrill to get to direct her, and now her fans as well as a whole bunch of new fans will get to enjoy her performance. Look her up on IMDB and track down her DVDs through No Shame films. She made a number of comedies, as well as some fucking awesome Giallo films, like "The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh," and "Strip Nude for Your Killer." This photo is me directing her the first day of shooting. There are many more strange stories from the shoot that I'll share at a later date, but thanks for all your comments and positive energy.

hi, just wanted to say that hostel is a crap movie and it has nothing to do with bratislava or slovakia, they just picked it because not many people know about this small country. i think the blog posting said it all, it will keep you going to the hotels you know. Europe is MUCH safer than america, people are more relaxed and friendly and that is particularly true of Bratislava.

Holywood creates these crappy movies to sell tickets and because they are so desperate for making money through people's ignorance.

Bratislava is in particular is delightful affordable and friendly. It has history and its a mini Vienna in places.

Dont buy the sick fantasies of holywood morons that are going film anything that makes a buck and they would sell their mother for box office success.

greetings from europe. An infinitely happier and more secure place than the USA.

Hostel is ok, but I think most people realise that Bratislava is not like the film is portrayed, just like Florence (where I have spent a lot of time) is nothing like it's shown in Hannibal!

Chill out mate!
