Hostel

Question: How did Paxton know that "Edward-salad-hands" bad guy (who he follows off the train and kills in the toilets at the end) was part of the Elite Hunting club? As far as I can remember, the last time Paxton sees him is when he is talking to Josh in the bar. Not an obvious clue... Unless he murders him simply for eating his lunch without a knife and fork? Reasonable.

Answer: Just before Paxton is taken to be tortured, he witnesses the Dutch businessman working on Josh's corpse.

Question: At the very end of the movie, just before the credits stop rolling, we hear Natalya's line, "I get a lot of money for you, and that makes you *my* bitch". Sounds to me like a filmmaker's joke on the audience (meaning, he's making money 'cause people are watching his picture). Does anyone know what this really was intended to mean? Any official words about it from Eli Roth or his crew?

Answer: This is actually a reference to both Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino's experience with the same hooker. After both Tarantino and Roth "had" the same call girl without either of them knowing, the hooker replied to both of them as she left their separate rooms, "I get a lot of money for you, and that makes you MY bitch. Hence, the opening line for the trailer. Both of them had a big laugh during the premiere.

Question: I was wondering what does the German surgeon say to Paxton before Paxton talks?

Answer: I'll have to re-watch to catch the bad-guy's words, but Paxton keeps saying, please don't take my life, I haven't done anything.

Question: Before Paxton escapes he sees guards talking to the police outside the building. I'm confused to why he says "oh shit" - is it because they pay the police to keep it quiet and that is why he doesn't shout for help to the police?

Answer: Exactly, yes. This interaction tells him that the police are in on the operation, and will not help him.

Plot hole: There's no way Paxton could have took the bodies off the cart, laid them down, and stacked them back on top of him in the 3 seconds it took for the guy to open the door. (01:07:15)

Paxton: We can't rail a girl that's in a coma. I think that's illegal, even in Amsterdam.
