Watch ‘Hostel: Part III’ opening – video

Latest in horror franchise released on DVD today

The opening scene of the Direct-to-DVD horror film, Hostel Part III, has been presented online. You can watch the clip below courtesy of Empire.

In the opening clip a young American backpacker finds a Ukrainian skinhead and a buxom woman in his yet-to-be vacated hostel room. But things aren’t quite what they seem.

The third part in the franchise sees the nefarious Elite Hunting Club moving to Las Vegas to find fresh young victims. The film stars Kip Pardue and Brian Hallisay and is directed by Scott Spiegal. Spiegal’s most notable credit thus far is From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money.

The latest outing for the controversial horror series, which didn’t receive a theatrical release, was made without any involvement from Eli Roth.

Speaking to ComingSoon the series creator had this to say on the latest instalment:

I’m just not involved in anyway (with Hostel III). There’s no negativity about it. I just said, ‘I put everything in my life for three years into these movies. I’ve said everything I have to say with it.”

Roth, who appeared in front of the camera in Inglorious Basterds for Quentin Tarantino, is currently occupied with film production with current projects The Man With Iron Fists and The Funhouse 3D being developed alongside the mooted The Last Exorcism sequel.

Hostel: Part III is out to buy now on DVD and Blu-Ray.
