Critic Reviews for Host
Host is a lean, nasty little exercise that might not linger for very long but it shows what can be done during this difficult time.
"Host" observes uncannily the supernatural, ephemeral, and material worlds colliding together, gesturing toward an uncertain future.
Savage and co-writers Gemma Hurley and Jed Shepherd do a fine enough job setting up their movie's better set pieces, but it's hard to overlook some obvious foreshadowing here, and some ham-fisted symbolism there.
Host remains resolutely its own thing: a smart, inventive and genuinely scary time capsule steeped in the dread of a global pandemic.
Savage delivers well-timed jumpscares that are legitimately scary, knowing how to build tension from what lurks outside the frame and in the background. The stacked Zoom windows mine suspense like Hitchcock's "Rear Window," albeit more lowbrow.
