Following great screenings at both the Toronto International Film Festival and Austin’s new Fantastic Fest, Eli Roth’s Hostel has finally secured a release date. It was up in the air for a while, originally set for November. Following the rapturous Fantastic Fest screening, I asked Eli when the film was due nationwide. And at that point, two weeks ago, he was pretty sure it would be early February. Well, now the official and final word is December 21 of this year, via Lions Gate and a special deal with Sony’s Screen Gems.
In the meantime, you can check out the Hostel trailer, and other bits of information, online right here. This is great horror film, and certainly the less you know about it, the better.
