Abridged Book Description

Upon its release, The Host quickly became the most profitable film in Korean history. A comic-melodramatic-apocalyptic-cult-horror mix, it gives the impression of a modern-day Godzilla (1954)... This is a truly great movie for any time, especially if you love blood, suspense and giant monsters (And who doesn't?).
