The Host Review

The Host is entertaining, but in all the wrong ways, and it’s even more ludicrous and slapdash than any of the films that came out of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. It’s the kind of film of such staggering, unintentional camp that it begs out for Rocky Horror styled catcalling and drinking games to arise from it.
