On this week’s podcast, Hostel, part of a polarizing movement of horror that came to prominence in the mid 2000s with the likes of Saw et al.

This Eli Roth written and directed effort (with some cash and probably creative input from Quentin Tarantino) follows two backpackers from Western to Central Europe, and the hijinks they get up to, before things take a turn for the worse.

On the podcast: putting Eli Roth’s films in context, ranking them, the influence of Tobe Hooper on his career, Italian cannibal films, the Saw movies, re-appreciating Hostel after a few viewings, vacation spots in Europe, Bratislava, Slovakia and more!
