Episode 16 – MovieNite: The Host

To sum up our foreign horror movie month, we decided to watch the Korean monster movie The Host.  This movie was about a giant mutated fish thing that terrorizes people along the Han River in Seoul, South Korea.  The story follows an incompetent father as he, his father, and his siblings try to track down the beast to rescue his daughter, who is taken as a snack for later.  Add that to an overall incompetent government, and generally stupid people all around, and you’ve got a healthy mix of horror, comedy, drama, and incompetence.

We were pretty divided overall about this film, which lead to a lengthy and rich discussion, and quite a few spoilers.

Check it out!

Kidnapping little girls to eat them later must be in a monster handbook somewhere...
