2008 H3 - Halloween Horror Hostel

H3 - Halloween Horror Hostel is the second episode of season one of the German parody series ProSieben Funny Movie. Eight total German language episodes were produced in two seasons (2008 and 2011). This horror movie spoof episode originally aired March 18th, 2008 and contains references and parodies of many well known horror movies including Halloween, Saw, Friday the 13th, Hostel, Evil Dead, The Ring, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Donnie Darko, Dawn of the Dead etc. The episode also features music by Rob Zombie, Michael Jackson's Thriller, Halloween (2007) theme and The Pussycat Dolls song Don't Cha. It is unrated and contains alcohol use, nudity and sexual situations.

A few good jokes and a lot of lame ones. Basically just a quick rehash of familiar horror tropes but at the length of just 70 minutes it's easy to sit through. There are no English subtitles in case you want to watch. Here is the badly translated to English synopsis: Four teenagers on their way to a Halloween party crash their car in the woods. A man with a chainsaw emerges from the darkness who turns out to be a good-natured hostel owner Harry, inviting them to follow him. Combine this scenario with two slutty sluts named Paris and Fikki, a hockey-mask wearing mass murderer who has escaped from jail, an annoying doll in a small red car who demands popcorn, dancing zombies summoned from the book of the dead, and you have "Halloween, on a Friday the 13th and 28 weeks later ..."
