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.

Enjoyable! Bit of a mess, script-wise; it feels like the writer had a hard time focusing on cohesive plot. Still, stakes are high, and things come together toward the end in a wonderfully satisfying way.

Don't care much for this one. the awful looking digital effects monster took me out of it tbh. Other than that the film as a whole is a bit too conventional for my taste.
