I have to say that after watching Hostel, part II again on DVD, my admiration for it only grew. I still don't think it's flawless, but I do think it's a giant leap up from his first two movies and, in many ways, the announcement of an exciting new moviemaker in the way the first two felt like the beginnings of a guy with potential who was worth watching, but that's the real deal.
I've moved on from being clinically interested in his next step to being actively excited to see what he does next.
I also thought his choices in 24 Hours Of Horror With Eli Roth by Keith Phipps are excellent, well conceived and, even more importantly, well explained.
(And the editor there is only half right about Britt Ekland, which make the insertion of the parenthetical a bit offensive frankly.)
