London Korean Film Night: The Host (2006)


On the banks of the Han River, a crowd gathers to watch an unidentified object hanging onto a bridge. In an instant, the object reveals itself as a terrifying creature, turning the riverbank into a gruesome sea of blood. Amid the chaos, a school girl, Hyun-seo is snatched up by the creature right before her father, Gang-du’s eyes. The witnesses that day, including Gang-du and his family are thrown into a chaotic quarantine zone by an army and government that have no idea what is going on. Late at night Gang-du receives a mobile phone call from his daughter confirming that she has miraculously survived, a once-ordinary citizen Gang-du and his family decide to wage war against the creature, despite both the Korean authorities and the U.S army’s efforts to stop them.
