Quentin Tarantino is presenting Eli Roth's new film, "Hostel," the follow up to his film "Cabin Fever." The Lions Gate Films release from Screen Gems will hit theaters on December 21st. Sony/Screen Gems (handling DVD) and Lions Gate (handling theatrical) last worked together on "The Punisher." "Hostel" was executive produced by Quentin Tarantino, Scott Spiegel and Boaz Yakin, and produced by Mike Fleiss and Chris Briggs. In the film, Jay Hernandez stars as, in the words of an announcement, "an American backpacker who becomes entangled in a demented underground torture ring." Lions Gate said in an announcement, "Relentlessly graphic and deeply disturbing, the film is rife with explicit sex and brutal violence that is sure to delight hard core genre fans, and prove difficult to stomach for general audiences."
