Roth talks Hostel: Part II story
He says that he was impressed with the poster but he can't claim credit because it was all Lionsgate's marketing people that did it, and he reveals what it is:
"That is boar meat, wild boar meat. That is the marketing at Lionsgate that did that. And I thought it was brilliant because the genius of that poster is if that was hanging at the supermarket, you would go 'oh, let’s have steak tonight.' But you put it in a movie theater with the words 'Hostel 2' and they go 'That’s the sickest thing I’ve ever seen.' And it’s all the power of suggestion....
...any time people see women in a horror film all these girls are pieces of meat, and literally in Hostel: Part II, that’s all they are. They are the bait. They are the meat. They are the grist for the mill. I thought it was actually a really smart poster. And it’s really really disgusting. I love it."
Roth then talks about the new film and where it picks off from, right from where Hostel finished. Then he goes on to talk about what he wanted to see in the new film and how it was going to be pitched.
"I wanted to see things from the killer’s point of view. I wanted to see girls getting lured there. And I really wanted to make the movie feel like that sequence where he’s in the locker room with the business man going 'How did you do it? How did you kill?' That scene, and the scene in the pub with the girls where he’s trying to ask them questions, but really can’t get answers and he’s not sure if they are answering him or if it’s lost in translation. That kind of uncertain, uncomfortable, really awkward, creepy tone – that’s what I wanted the whole movie to feel like."
The comments come from /Film who have some more titbits from the Director.
He speaks about hitting the ratings board with his Grindhouse just before trying to get through with Hostel: Part II. Nasty man, he'll probably give them all heart attacks. The good news is that the cuts he's made for time are likely to hit the DVD, MPAA permitting of course.
