And maybe Borderlands is actually good, unlike Hostel which was utter shite.

Hi Dark,

I actually liked Hostel after I got through the first 3/4. Before that, I just thought it was some schlock movie showing how many ways people could be tortured and killed. I haven't watched any of the sequels because, what's left to do other than ruin the effect of the original?

There was no torture or gore - just "implied violence," which meant that there would be a guy with a chainsaw, then the camera would turn away and then you hear screams. Bollocks.

What ever happened to real gore?

Visit a slaughterhouse, that's the only real gore you can get legally.

AMC is running Death Hunt Wednesday AM. It's based on the case of Albert "Mad Trapper" Johnson, the Canadian spree killer from the 1930s. Charles Bronson stars.
