Let's make this clear right out of the gate - Eli Roth is NOT involved in this threequel in any way other than the obligatory 'based on characters by' writing credit, so that's a pretty big red flag right there. Add in the fact that this was never intended as anything other than direct-to-DVD fodder; a troubled production; and the wildly inconsistent horror vet Scott Spiegel at the helm and all signs point to this being a right off.
That said, we've gotta admit - we're diggin' the trailer. The Vegas setting is refreshing (and apt), the kills look a little more creative (death by cockroach!) and... no, that's pretty much all - but it's looking a lot better than we hoped. Take peek and see for yourselves...
Not too bad, right? Here's the official synopsis should you care to learn more...
High stakes gambling takes on a sinister new meaning in this third chapter of the terrifying HOSTEL series. While attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas, four friends are enticed by two sexy escorts to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture, where members of the Elite Hunting Club are hosting the most sadistic show in town.
HOSTEL PART III is released on DVD/Blu-ray Stateside December 27th, with a UK date TBC.
