Default Hostel Unrated and Hostel Part Two Oct 23

Director promises more gore and no double-dip!

July 28, 2007 - Today at the San Diego Comic-Con, Sony announced standard and high-definition releases for both of Eli Roth's gory, blood-soaked European adventures - Hostel: The Director's Cut and Hostel Part II. Slashing their way onto store shelves on DVD and Blu-ray on October 23, both films will present the final, violent killing stroke to the Hostel universe with completely unrated, feature-full editions. Roth was on-hand to discuss the films and said of the newly-unrated version of the original - complete with the original ending:

"When you watch the director's cut ending - this is the ending that could actually support a completely different sequel…You have to watch it knowing that the story would continue in a different way…We showed it to audiences and people just left the theatre genuinely upset and so we always said that we wanted people to be disturbed, but not, you know, ruined."

Hostel: The Unrated Cut will offer a host of features, including:

* Director and Producers Commentary with Roth, Quentin Tarantino, Boax Yakin and Scott Spiegel
* Director and Guests Commentary with Roth, actors Barbara Nedeljakova and Eythor Gudjonsson, editor George Folsey, Jr. and journalist Harry Knowles
* Director and Producers Commentary with Roth, producer Chris Biggs and documentarian Gabriel Roth
* Five featurettes including: Music and Sound, Set Design, KNB Effects, An Icelandic Meal with Eythor Gudjonsson an and Interview with Takashi Miike
* "Killing the Car" multi-angle featurette
* "Hostel Dismembered" International TV Spot
* "The Treatment" KCRW radio interview with Roth by Elvis Mitchell
* "Hostel Dissected" - three part behind the scenes featurette
* Ten deleted scenes
* Photo Galleries
* Optional original ending



As for the second release - the special unrated edition for Hostel Part Two - Roth assures fans, "There is only going to be one DVD. We really jam packed this DVD and I don't want to double-dip the fans. It's very important for people to know that this is it for Part Two. This is the cut with all the extra violence and gore…with all the deleted scenes and some terrific featurettes, as well as Tarantino's awesome audio commentary."

The sequel DVD will feature:

* Director's Commentary with Roth
* Director and Producer's Commentary with Gabriel Roth and Quentin Tarantino
* Cast and Crew Commentary
* Elivs Mitchell "The Treatment" interview with Eli Roth
* Factory Torture Cams (exclusive to Blu-ray)
* Blood and Guts Montage
* Deleted Scenes
* Four behind-the-scenes featurettes

Put me down for both films on Blu-ray. But why does it say Sony? I thought that these were Lionsgate films.

Good question.

7/13 distributors are Sony worldwide. Screen Gems, is my best guess.

The unrated dvd that is out now was released by Sony according to amazon. hmm.

either way, both distributors are Blu exclusive, so it isn't like one side of the fence is getting screwed....oh...wait...*chuckle*

I will totally go for II on blu. I already think part 1 is loaded on dvd as it is, so I see no reason to upgrade just for that. damn near 1/2 my high def purchases have been upgrades.

I was considering buying the U.K. version at one time, but I'm glad I held out.

Did the first Hostel get delayed? It was up for preorder on some sites and now I don't see it.
