Cast forms for HOSTEL 3, sans Eli Roth

Walking out of a recent screening of the Eli Roth produced horror film, THE LAST EXORCISM, I realized one thing.

Eli Roth may very well be past his prime.

Sure, I know Roth didn’t helm the rather superb horror/thriller, but that in and of itself is what I’m getting at here.  EXORCISM is a taut thriller, that is far more of a mystery/thriller than anything resembling a horror film.  With religious overtones, great performances, and a worthwhile story, EXORCISM is a far better film than most of Roth’s rather uninteresting canon.

However, what’s even less interesting, is the idea of a HOSTEL 3, the third film in the torture porn franchise created by the horror geek, without Mr. Roth at the helm. That said, thanks to The Wrap, not only do we have to come to terms with the fact that it shall exist, but that it’s coming your way sooner, rather than later.

The outlet is reporting that John Hensley, Skyler Stone, Chris Coy,  and Thomas Kretschmann have joined the cast of the upcoming film, which will star Kip Pardue, Brian Hallisay and Sarah Habel.  Now, while I don’t mind the first HOSTEL, I sure as hell have no interest in a third film, not helmed by Roth.  This D-level cast only makes me less interested.  What do you think?
