After the disappointing box office returns for Eli Roth’s Hostel: Part II, people were only to happy to proclaim the “torture porn” genre dead. But not so fast… it looks like the backlash isn’t stopping Lionsgate from churning out Hostel III. There isn’t much to go on right now, but according to Bloody Disgusting, Eli Roth will not write or direct this sequel. There is also no word on whether it will be released theatrically or direct to DVD.
Although I wasn’t that pleased with Hostel: Part II, I think Eli Roth did offer something more than a rehash of the first. However, without his involvement, I doubt that I will give part 3 a chance. Did you like Hostel: Part II? Are you interested in seeing a third Hostel film?
