(2007) *** ½
Let's just call this Hostel a la Francaise. There is a revolution and Paris is riddled with brutal riots. A group of young thieves think they are in luck when they find a friendly little Inn to stay at. What they've actually stumbled onto is a torture palace run by a group of cannibalistic neo Nazis led by a former SS officer, Le Von Geisler .
Yet another entry in extreme French horror. The main character is a young woman named Yasmine who seriously snaps somewhere in the midst of the continuous brutal torture that takes place here.
We are introduced to many odd characters living in this place which can only be described as hell. The film starts off in one direction, the thieves trying to escape to Amsterdam with stolen money. It only turns disturbingly violent when they get lured into the Inn. It all seems too good to be true. Free room for the night & free sex too with two hot mamas. Once they realize it really is too good to be true they are trapped. At that point it just explodes from one brutal scene to the next.
Cool film if you can stomach the blood bath and torture. I give it a solid hell yeah!
