Day 18: torture...I picked Hostel part 2. I've seen the original many, many times, but never checked out the sequel. I'm glad I finally did! It wasn't as good as the first one, but it was thoroughly enjoyable and expanded the underground world started in Hostel. It also wasn't as gory, but that's only an issue if you have to have a gore fest to be entertained. The ending was a nice twist. It was a worthy sequel. .
Way behind on my horror challenge, but I promise to catch up soon, continuing with Hostel, directed by Eli Roth, as number 10 on my list. This movie really capitalized on the Saw created torture horror genre of the mid 2000s, but took it in a bit of a different and somewhat interesting direction. This film also established Roth's violent, sexualized directing style, which would help carry him to cult favorite status for years to come. This is a well made film and the things it sets out to accomplish, it does well, but make no mistake, this movie is not for everyone. The exploitative nature, dark themes, and questions it asks about humanity are a little extreme and will leave you feeling uneasy by the end of the film. The gore is top notch in this, which is no surprise considering Greg Nicatero is involved, but still well done. The concept and premise are what lead this movie and although the characters are one dimensional and the plot takes awhile to get going, once everything starts clicking, the horror and terror are real, and nothing is scarier then that. 7.75/10 #hostel#eliroth#amsterdam#jayhernandez#horror#torture#scary#horrormovies#exotic#exploitation#movies#film#review#blood#gore#violence#drugs#brothel#train#eyepopping#gregnicotero#tarentino#brutal#kids#gum
In the Pacific theatre of WW2, stories began to circulate about Japanese soldiers torturing Allied POW's with bamboo shoots. Apparently, a bamboo shoot can grow through several inches of flesh-like material in just a few days (see Myth Busters). Men placed above them would experience a slow agony as the plants would stretch upward searching for the sun.
The use of this method is mostly described in apocrypha, but the behavior of the bamboo plant suggests that the principle is sound.
This is a version of the Scavenger's Daughter. The idea is to compress the victim's body until blood issues from the eyes, nose, ears and anus. The length of the suffering can drawn out significantly with this device, especially if the victim is fed and watered.
I'm pretty sure Satan himself wrote this song with one goal in mind, to inflict excruciating pain on parents all around the world.... If your a parent and you have yet to experience such torture I have two things to say to you.... First, you're the luckiest parent in the world and every ear that has had the misfortune of listening to this torturous song would agree with me. Second, I need you to ask yourself, are you really even a parent if you have never experienced the pain of listening to your child sing "Daddy finger daddy finger where are you?" Over n over n over again. To the party responsible for making me question my sanity, I want you to know that I too wrote a song about fingers just for you, well actually I wrote a song about one finger in particular 😉 #momlife#lol#memes#parenting#parenthood#daddyfinger#torture#instafunny#mom#unicornmom#lifewithkids#warning#funnyshit#truth#thestruggle#whytho
