THE HOST (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

The Host,
based on a Stephanie Meyers’ book, does not measure up to Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series movies. This film needs a serious overhaul from the ground up to become good entertainment. Nothing works in this movie even though it has terrific potential to be an outstanding movie.

Small aliens insert themselves into human bodies and take over consciousness. One woman fights back and begins conversations with the alien that she is hosting.
