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.

One of my favorite Korean flicks, full of gorgeous daytime CGI shots with a solid story and great acting.
I loved it. Fantastic creature feature.
The Host is great with plenty of fun while still maintaining some truly human moments. Worth watching.
