About the Movie The Host on DVD:
This Korean-language horror film was directed and co-written by Bong Joon-ho. The movie focuses on the Park family, which runs a snack stand on the banks of Seoul's Han River. One fine day an ugly amphibious monster suddenly emerges from the Han and attacks the crowd there. The mutant creature grabs an adolescent member of the Park family and stashes her away to eat later. Though the government claims the rampaging monster hosts a deadly virus and imposes a quarantine, the family sets out to try to save the girl.
