The Host - Monster Attack


Either you've already seen The Host and loved it, or you've never even heard of the movie and are wondering what language they're speaking.....well, it's Korean. The Host is directed by one of my favorite Korean directors, Bong Joon-ho, who wrote and directed Memories of Murder, one of the best Korean films ever. The movie stars one of the most talented actors in the world, Song Kang-ho. But you know what sets this monster movie apart from the others? The monster itself. Unlike many other monster-themed films, the creature is fully visible from early on in the film, sometimes for large stretches of time and even in broad daylight. Yeah, take some freaking notes Cloverfield...

In this scene, the monster attacks some innocent people near the Wonhyo Bridge in the daytime.

I don't mean to make you mad or anythign, but usually it is a good thing to conceal the monster until the end. Take ALIEN I for example. Would that movie have been any good if you've seen the alien for a lot of time? No. You'd know what you were up against and what it was currently doing, thus making you feel safe or the characters in the movie seem extremely stupid, because you feel that they know what the monster is doing (because you know) and they don't do shit about it.
Also it takes away the characters' perspective.
