The "Hostel" franchise was never any great piece of cinematic art. It basically just got a bunch of attractive young people together and then tortured them all for our cinematic "pleasure."

Eli Roth: bold new voice in genre film or an overrated, exploitative hack? Well, that depends on who you ask but there is no denying that the filmmaker is a force in the industry. Of course, as a director he's got "Cabin Fever" and the "Hostel" films under his belt, and he's been making waves as a producer as well, throwing his weight behind last year's no budget horror flick "The Last Exorcism," RZA's upcoming "The Man with the Iron Fists" and the fake-movie-trailer-turned-movie "Clown." And while he directed the "Nation's Pride" segment in "Inglourious Basterds", it's been been five long years since "Hostel: Part II" but he's keeping his eyes on the prize as his next full length feature is looking to be one he's been talking up for a while.

How do you make it to Hollywood? Apparently, all you have to do is produce a fake movie trailer that barely becomes an Internet meme and put Eli Roth's name on it.
