Sequel to the story of murder and torture for sale in Eastern Europe: Three young women traveling in Europe hope for some fun and frivolity but end up as the subjects of rich people who pay to murder them in very brutal ways. With Lauren German, Heather Matarazzo, Bijou Phillips, Roger Bart and Richard Burgi. Directed by Eli Roth. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - We see a man's genitals during a torture scene, and they are later severed and tossed to a dog, which eats them (they are clearly discernible). We see a fully nude male model posing for an art class (his bare chest, buttocks and genitals are visible).
 A man reclined on a bed and bare-chested is having oral sex performed on him by a woman wearing a thong (we see her bare buttocks): her head is bobbing up and down while we hear slurping, and they are then interrupted.
 A nude woman is tortured (we see her bare breasts and buttocks) while another nude woman (we see her bare breasts, abdomen and legs) lies beneath her in a bathtub; the woman in the tub is drenched with blood, seems to be getting sexually aroused, and massages her nude body with the blood. We see a female model drop her robe and reveal her bare breasts (presumably the rest of her is exposed as well, but not onscreen). We see a photograph of a bare buttock with a tattoo.
 A tortured woman wears a corset and stockings. Several women wear low-cut dresses and short skirts that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders, and bare thighs in several scenes. Two men wearing robes enter a room where scantily clad women dance seductively (the outfits reveal cleavage and bare buttocks), and one woman grabs one man by the hand.
 A man tells a woman, whom he plans to torture, to get on the floor; she does, he climbs on top of her, he reaches down to open his pants and the sexual aspect of this scene ends (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
 A woman in a swimming pool caresses another woman's shoulders, kisses her back and then swims away. A man massages a woman's back and shoulders in a swimming pool (we see her bikini top and cleavage and bare shoulders and his bare chest).
 A woman goes to a man's hotel room and her friend refuses to let her go inside (later the woman says that she really wanted to have sex with the man).
 A man and a woman are shown sleeping in bed together (nothing sexual is implied). A man and a woman kiss. A man kisses a woman on the forehead (she is hanging upside down and is gagged).
 A woman practices dancing with suggestive moves and gestures in front of a mirror. Men and women dance together at a festival; one couple kisses and hugs.
 A man talks about another man bringing back a sexually transmitted disease from a foreign country. A woman talks in crude terms about another woman whom she thinks probably had sex with a man the previous night. A woman tells a man that she will get to "hear them having sex later," talking about another man and woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - A woman using shears cuts a man's genitals off: he screams in pain, other men watching cringe, the woman grabs the severed genitals and throws them to a dog which eats them and we see the bloody crotch of the man while he writhes and screams (he's left to bleed to death).
 A nude woman who's gagged and has chains around her ankles and wrists hangs upside down while another nude woman lies beneath her in a bathtub: the woman in the tub picks up a scythe, begins to touch the dangling woman and drags the blade across her skin while she begs for her life, she begins to make deep slashes on the woman's back, blood pours and sprays on her and in the tub, and she seems to be getting sexually aroused; she then slashes the dangling woman's throat, she is sprayed with blood and massages her nude body with it.
 A woman chases a boy who has stolen her purse, she trips in thick woods, another woman approaches her, cuts her head off and the boys play soccer with the victim's head (we see blood spurting from the neck wound and blood on the neck of the severed head).
 In a dream, a man stabs a man in the chest, pulls the knife down his abdomen opening him up and pulling out an organ (the man screams and we see blood on his shirt and blood on the organ) and he wakes up screaming.
 A man is attacked by two vicious dogs which tear him apart: we hear him scream, we see them tugging at the body, we see bloody limbs separated from the body and intestines on the floor and on a cart when his remains are wheeled by; we also see a large hole in his head.
 A man is shown slicing into the leg of a live man who moans and writhes while strapped onto a table; he serves a plate with the flesh slices and eats them -- we see the man on the table with some of the flesh of one leg removed (exposing muscle and bone) and the other leg is severed at the knee and there's a tourniquet at the thigh.
 A woman is chained into a chair, another woman enters the room and tells her she will clean her up for a client, and the woman in the chair screams and pleads for help while the other woman unties her hands: the woman in the chair then bites the other woman's nose off (we see a bloody hole in her face), spits the nose piece out, frees herself, runs away, is chased by dogs who snarl and snap at her and she cowers in a corner (she is then taken back to the torture room where we see her later).
 A woman finds a dead body seated at a table with its head missing, and a very bloody stump at the neck, which a cat is licking.
 A man starts a circular saw and approaches a woman who is strapped into a chair: she screams and pleads, he flashes the saw around her threateningly and then seemingly accidentally cuts her head (we see blood, she twitches and when he pulls the saw away we see a patch of hair pull with it); the man leaves the room and does not return and we hear him vomiting while on an elevator.
 A man talks about a place where people murder backpackers and we see flashes of people being murdered by being hacked with axes, or cut with saws (there is a lot of blood on the victims, the floors, the weapons and the killers).
 Several boys push a boy to the ground and present him to a man as the one who should be shot; the man shoots the boy in the head (we hear the shot and see the boy's limp body).
 A woman hides in a closet, she backs away from the door and into a wall that opens and reveals a room where many severed heads on posts line a shelf around the entire room; she panics and she is held with a cloth over her nose until she falls unconscious.
 A man shoots another man, and then races away in a car hitting two women as he goes (they each crash onto the car and we hear cracking sounds and see blood spurt).
 We see a dead man slumped over a toilet in a public restroom; he is sitting in a pool of blood and we see a flashback of his murder (we see his face as he screams and another man grabs him from behind).
 A woman pushes a hypodermic needle into a man's ear (we see blood trickle and he screams). In the background of a scene we see a man wheeling a cart that holds bloody flesh (it is hard to make out individual forms).
 A woman holds a gun on several guards while at the same time holding a pair of shears on a man's genitals; the guards hold guns on her briefly and then lower their weapons and negotiations take place.
 Two men put a bag over a woman's head, one man shoves her into water, and another strikes her in the head with a stick knocking her unconscious. A man punches a woman hard in the face and straps her into a chair.
 A man tells a woman (whom he plans to torture) to get on the floor, she does, he climbs on top of her, he reaches down to open his pants, and she then head-butts him, strikes him twice in the head with a metallic weapon and restrains him in a chair.
 A man shown on a security camera raises a machete toward a woman strapped into a chair and, although not shown, presumably cuts her head off.
 A woman is frightened when she cannot find her friends and several menacing looking men approach her; she runs, climbs a wall, runs through woods, trips and is pummeled by boys who strike her with sticks until a man stops them.
 A man sits unconscious and slumped over (we see blood on a window near his head), and we see him later in the hospital with a bandage on his hand (it seems two of his fingers were severed).
 Two men get tattooed on the arm (we see the needle poking their skin and hear the buzz). One woman gets tattooed on the buttock (we see flesh and the needle but the buttock is not clearly visible).
 We see several people bound and gagged and sitting in a cell, and they are taken out one at a time and put into torture rooms. A man holds a gun to the heads of several boys who do not seem to be the slightest bit afraid of dying.
 Two women go to the sleeper car of a man where two other men are also, they ask him if he has any drugs, he looks but cannot find any, one of the men grabs one of the women by the arm and hurts her, she pulls away and the women leave but the men yell out threats at them as they go.
 Three men bang on train compartment doors looking for two women, and the women are frightened (they do not find them). A woman rides in a boat with a man she has just met and her friend is very worried about her safety.
 Two men select weapons to use during torture and they make jokes about the items as they test them out. Several people are shown bidding on three women as the victims of their torture and murder adventures.
 Two men allude to the fact that they are going to kill people and how the act will make them seem scary and that people will fear and respect them after it has been done. A man tells a woman that people come to a place to kill people. A boy calls three women an obscene name. A woman talks about choking another woman to death.
 A woman sees two men packing up and cleaning a room where a man and woman had been staying and she seems frightened.
 A boy spits on a woman's face (we see goo). A woman spills an alcoholic beverage on a man's pant leg.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.
