Somehow The Host manages to be both ridiculous and dull.

There are simply not enough thrills in The Host to offset its pedestrian missteps.

Director Andy Newbery - working from a script credited to four writers - makes the story look classy but can't find its beating heart.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

The pedestrian approach here simply proves tedious, which is no small achievement considering the utter craziness on display.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

It's all very silly, not especially well-written, and any echoes of Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece Psycho, clearly an influence, are of the tinny and remote variety.

It takes several jarring switches of gear and direction.
