Hostel III – Paint the town red this Christmas

Hostel IIIInteresting news is emerging for fans of the Hostel franchise, with the third instalment being unleashed straight onto DVD on 27 December.

Hostel III offers a new take on the original Sin City of Las Vegas, bringing the horror a lot closer to home for American fans of the series.

The film itself looks a lot more decadent than previous offerings with settings including glittering Vegas landmarks that are decorated with beautiful women. Sin City is a place that offers all kinds of indulgences for the rich, including the sinister ones on offer in Hostel III.

Helmed by Evil Dead II co-writer Scott Spiegel, the third instalment features the traditional array of beauties including model Kelly Thiebaud in one of the lead roles. Although Eli Roth has been rumoured to be producing, he has apparently stayed away from set of the latest instalment of the franchise that he created.

Released two days after Christmas, Hostel III could be the perfect late gift for those wishing to paint the town red over the festive period.

Introverted Sally Hurst has just moved in with her father Alex and his girlfriend Kim when she realises that their sprawling estate holds its fair share of secrets. Ascending to the depths of the house, Sally gains access to a secret lower level that has lain undisturbed for nearly a century, when the original builder vanished without a trace. When Sally accidentally opens the gateway that kept the creatures locked up tight, she realises that in order to prevent them from destroying her family is to convince her sceptical father than monsters really exist.
