2005 | 'Hostel'

Director Eli Roth told The Times that paramedics were called twice to treat audience members during the screening at the Toronto International Film Festival of his sadistic horror-thriller about a torture ring where rich people pay to kill and mutilate humans. It paved the way for dozens of copycat horror flicks that emphasized gore and guts over suspense and subtlety. Rico Torres / Lionsgate
