From the director of “Memories of Murder” comes Bong Joon-Ho's THE HOST, fresh from success in Cannes where Variety dubbed it “arguably the hit of the festival”. This fantasy monster movie, which expertly mixes humour and horror, has broken box office records in its native Korea, taking the opening weekend record and the highest single-day admissions ever. THE HOST recently showed in the Director's Fortnight section of the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and has been compared in its scare-quotient to both “Jaws” and “Alien”

Gang-du is a dim-witted man working at his father's tiny snack bar near the Han River. One day, Gang-du's one and only daughter Hyun-seo comes back from school irritated. She is angry at her uncle, Nam-il, who visited her school shamelessly drunk. Ignoring her father's excuses for Nam-il, Hyun-seo is soon engrossed in her aunt Nam-joo's archery tournament on TV.

Meanwhile, outside the snack bar, people are fascinated by 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, Hyun-seo is snatched up by the creature right before Gang-du's eyes. These unforeseen circumstances render the government powerless to act. But receiving a call of help from Hyun-seo, the once-ordinary citizen Gang-du and his family are thrust into a battle with the creature to rescue their beloved Hyun-seo.
