Do not believe the image shown for the trailer, it is the wrong film. This also has the wrong cover when purchased. Annoying, very! But....this film is amazing, a beautiful dark comedy from Bong Joon-ho. This is definitely a must watch movie.

A monster attacks the citizens of Seoul. A simple premise. Yet, at its heart, The Host forces us to examine our own humanity. Through our apathy, our hubris, our greed; are we the real monsters? Fiercely entertaining, well-executed and featuring stellar performances by the cast, this film is a thrilling experience from start to finish.
