As Gang-du walks out to the riverbank with a delivery, he notices that a large crowd of people has gathered, taking pictures and talking about something hanging from the Han River Bridge.

The otherwise idyllic landscape turns suddenly to bedlam when a terrifying creature climbs up onto the riverbank and begins to crush and eat people.

Gang-du makes plans to infiltrate the forbidden zone near the Han River to rescue his daughter from the clutches of the horrifying Host...

The Host Review by Meh

I just finished reviewing Oldboy and sung its praises as being THE movie that got me into asian cinema and more specifically sub-titled asian horror. Before that I was a narrow minded genre fan who was far to lazy to do ...

I always love Japanese horror movies, the reason being is because they are always one step ahead of us when it comes down to character analysis, real horror, clique situations and moral family values. When it comes to Th...
The Host (Gwoemul) (2007) Review by jackalqueen

I saw the dubbed version of this and I think it would probably have been better to see the original with subtitles as some of the voices were very fake.  This film is like an extension of the 'crocodiles in the sewe...
