This is an original Japanese poster printed in 2005 for the first release of Hostel.
Hostel is a 2005 American horror film written and directed by Eli Roth. It stars Jay Hernandez, Derek Richardson, Eyþór Guðjónsson, and Barbara Nedeljáková about a mysterious organization that tortures and kills kidnapped tourists.
It was produced by Eli Roth, Mike Fleiss, and Chris Briggs. It is the first installment of the Hostel trilogy, followed by Hostel: Part II and Hostel: Part III.
After the release of Cabin Fever, Eli Roth was met with praise from several industry figures, including Quentin Tarantino, who placed the film in his 'Top 10' of the year and immediately reached out to Roth in hopes of working with him on a future project. Roth was offered to many studio directing jobs, mostly in the form of horror remakes such as The Last House on the Left, The Fog, and a film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, among several others, but Tarantino advised him to turn down those offers to instead create an original horror story. While swimming in Tarantino's pool, Roth brainstormed an idea for a low-budget horror film based on a Thai "murder vacation" website he came across on the dark web. Tarantino loved the idea and encouraged Roth to immediately start writing a draft that day, which later formed the basis for Hostel.
