Welcome to Your Worst Nightmare.
Yup, that would be the tagline for my #22 scary movie pick - Hostel (Roth, 2005). This horror, mystery, thriller is about three backpackers who head to a Slovakian city believing that they will find a hostel with plenty of women who will want to sleep with them. However, they have no idea the hell that awaits them! The director, Eli Roth, is one twisted dude and it definitely shows in this film. The plot is tricky to figure out and the violence continues to get scarier and grosser as the film progresses. Be prepared to see things cut off, blood splattering everywhere, and the most unimaginable torture scenes. I think it starts off a bit slow, but the middle and end certainly make up for that! As Kyle Smith of the New York Post wrote, "Hostel is a screaming good time."
