The Host

The Host

Directed by Joon Ho Bong

In this crossover Korean horror hit, a giant mutant sea monster terrorizes Seoul. But the ferocious creature known as "The Host" is no lumbering beast like Godzilla. It selects what it wants carefully, and what it wants is the Hyun-seo, who it drags back to it's deep, dark hideout. Now it's up to Hyun-seo's father Gang-du, a food-stand worker who's anything but a traditional hero, to infiltrate the forbidden zone and rescue his daughter from the clutches of the horrifying creature. Cahiers du Cinema named THE HOST the fourth best film of the entire 2000s.

A dramedy delight, a great creature flick and heart-warming film about love and family.

Excellent all round. Even if you don't like monster movies it's so well made that you'll probably enjoy it anyway.

good film with some amazing shots even though the cgi wasnt great. weird score and some stuff at the end could have been resolved better, but overall very enjoyable.
