Hostel (2005)

Three episodes in and Joe and Trace are already ready for a vacation…in straight white homophobic hell. That’s right, we’re RIPPING into Eli Roth’s notorious 2004 torture porn flick Hostel, drilling down into the Josh/Salad Fingers relationship and questioning if Roth, the film or the characters are homophobic. Mostly the guys just lament how much better Part Two is. 

Plus: in this week’s game Joe forces Trace to play “Archive or Trash It” with Roth’s filmography.
