Hostel: Part III is a 2011 American horror film directed by Scott Spiegel and the third installment of the Hostel film series. It was written by Michael D. Weiss, This is the first film in the series to be neither written nor directed by Eli Roth, and the first not to have a theatrical release.

The plot centers around four men attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas. While there, they are enticed by two sexy prostitutes to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture, where members of the Elite Hunting Club are hosting the most sadistic show in town. It was released direct-to-DVD on December 27, 2011.[1]

Plot[edit]

The film starts with a young man, named Travis, going into a hotel room where a Ukrainian couple, Victor and Anka, are currently staying. Anka and Victor go unconscious after being drugged by the beer Travis gave them. It is then revealed that Travis is a member of the Elite Hunting Club. Victor later wakes up in a cell in an abandoned building, and watches as two guards drag Anka out of her cell.

Scott leaves his fiancée Amy to go to Las Vegas with his friend Carter for Scott's bachelor party. There, they meet up with Mike and Justin, their other friends. The four go to a nightclub, where they meet Kendra and Nikki, two escorts Carter secretly paid to have sex with Scott. Kendra and Nikki tell the four men about a "freaky" party they could go to, and the four men take a cab to an abandoned building. At the party, Kendra makes a move on Scott, but he declines and tells her about how he was previously unfaithful with Amy and almost lost her, and he doesn't want it to happen again. Scott wakes up the next morning in his hotel room with Carter and Justin. The three wonder where Mike is, as he isn't picking up his phone.

Mike awakens in a cell and starts panicking. Two guards strap him to a chair in an empty room. One wall is made of glass, and Mike is on display to be gambled upon by wealthy clients. A doctor enters the room, and Mike pleads with him. The doctor cuts Mike's face off, then leaves, and the audience gives a round of applause for the show. Worried about Mike, Scott, Carter, and Justin travel to Nikki's trailer but don't find her. Kendra arrives and reveals that Nikki is also missing. Meanwhile, Nikki wakes up gagged. She is brought into the same room as Mike and strapped to a table. A doctor releases a jar full of cockroaches onto Nikki, which crawl into her mouth and suffocate her.

Scott, Carter, Justin, and Kendra get a text from "Mike" to meet him and Nikki in a hotel room. When they get there, everyone is kidnapped by Travis and wake up in individual cells along with Victor. The two guards take Justin away, and Carter calls the guard, telling him that he is also a client. Justin gets strapped into a chair, and Carter, Flemming, and Travis watch as a woman shoots arrows into him. Scott is also strapped and asks Carter why he is doing this. Carter reveals he wants Amy for himself, as they were in a relationship before she ended up with Scott. He says that once Scott dies, he will comfort Amy and she will want to be with him.

Flemming orders Scott to be let go from the chair. Scott and Carter fight, and Scott ends up stabbing Carter. Scott then breaks out and flees. Victor kills one of the guards and frees himself but is killed by another guard. Scott calls the cops and frees Kendra, who is shot by Travis. Scott and Travis fight, and Scott kills him. Flemming sets the building to explode and attempts to drive away, but Carter kills him and takes his car. Carter sees Scott and locks the front gate before Scott can get to him. He drives away while the building explodes with Scott still inside.

Sometime later, Carter is comforting Amy, and she invites him to stay the night. Amy tells Carter that Scott is still alive and stabs Carter in the hand with a corkscrew. A burned Scott appears and kills him with an electric tiller.

Production[edit]

In June 2008, it was announced that Scott Spiegel, one of the executive producers of Hostel and Hostel: Part II, was in talks to direct a third film in the series. In July 2009, Eli Roth confirmed that he would not be directing Hostel: Part III.[2] Total Film later reported that Roth would be involved, albeit as producer only, and that the film will abandon the European locations of the previous films in favor of an American setting. A trailer for Hostel: Part III was released in October 2011 confirming the film's Las Vegas setting.

Internal casino shots were filmed at the Greektown Casino in Detroit, Michigan (as evident by the Greektown logo shown on the TV monitors during the casino sequences). The Detroit Greektown Casino is the only Native American owned and operated casino located in the heart of a large populated metropolis in North America.[3]

Release[edit]

There were meant to be many viral marketing tools attached to the film including a collection of QR codes that would, if scanned, give exclusive content. You can see one at 1:9:26. Because of the film's reception from test audiences, the marketing campaign was dropped, and if you scan the code now the result would just show up as "top left 8."[4]

Hostel Part III was released on DVD and Video on demand on December 27, 2011 in the United States, and on January 18, 2012 in Europe.[5][6]
