One of my favorite Wan films. The twist is one of my favorites in any movie I can recall. When I think of twists, I usually think of The Usual Suspects and Saw (as weird as that combo is). Very effective, creative film overall.
Better than I remember, acting really does let it down its even laughable at times.

James Wan is a guy that I often forget about when I'm thinking of directors I love, but I do believe that he is an uncommon talent. Between this and The Conjuring (Insidious to a lesser extent, and I even love Dead Silence), he has proven that he can command the visceral horror experience like few others working today (please inform me if there are others; I'm very interested). The creative team of Wan and writer Leigh Whannell is one…
On a first date, this girl I barely knew rented Saw and Hostel for us to watch together over at my place.
Now, some would say perfect scenario.
I said, "what the Hell is wrong with this chick!"
Politely walked her to the door, said goodnight and dead bolted that door.
No second date.
Still a little freaked out by it all.
