Too much horror biz-ness

I've written before that today's horror is all about the gross out, and not the creep-you-out-so-you -can't-sleep-alone-in-your-cold-drafty-house scary. Eli Roth, maker of the reasonably gross but still funny Cabin Fever, apparently watched a lot of Takeshi Miike films, and has now made an ultra gross montage. Hostel, (fraught with double meaning, eh?) concerns two Americans on a carousing tour of Europe who end up in some hotel where people pay large sums to kill other people. And they do it in the nastiest ways imaginable. Here is the trailer, which will make you want to go pick daisies for the elderly as some kind of karmic rebalancing.
