Plot – Spoilers:
The third and final installment in the Hostel series moves the action from Slovakia to the US.
Four friends head to Vegas for a bachelor party and indulge in stripper and hooker action. If the guys in Hostel 1 were mildly annoying, these are borderline despicable and you can’t wait to see them suffer.
So anyway, they are taken one by one by the Elite Hunting Club who seem to have opened out a franchise near Vegas. The Hunting Club have also upgraded their systems – not only do you get to kill, while you’re at it, you also are watched live by other members seated as an audience who then place bets on certain aspects of the kill. The kills featured here include torture by insects, a victim’s facial skin scalped away and death by a crossbow.
Hostel 3 never saw a theatre and was direct-to-video following a poor response from a test audience screening. When you watch this, you can see why. It has the deaths, the annoying characters and a new betting concept and yet, just doesn’t work as well as the previous two Hostels. Moving the Elite Hunting Club from Slovakia to the United States also didn’t help.
