About this item

The talk of the 2006 Cannes International Film Festival, "The Host", the latest film from critically acclaimed visionary director Bong Joon-ho, has already garnered a substantial amount of international buzz. Utilizing state-of-the-art special effects courtesy of a creative partnership between Weta Workshop ("King Kong", "The Lord of the Rings") and The Orphanage ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", "Sin City"), "The Host" is equal parts creature-feature thrill ride and poignant human drama. Gang-du (Song Kang-ho) works at a food-stand on the banks of the Han River. Dozing on the job, he is awakened by his daughter, Hyun-seo (Ko A-sung), who is angry with him for missing a teacher-parent meeting at school. As Gang-du walks out to the riverbank with a delivery, he notices that a large crowd of people has gathered, taking pictures and talking about something hanging from the Han River Bridge. The otherwise idyllic landscape turns suddenly to bedlam when a terrifying creature climbs up onto the riverbank and begins to crush and eat people. Gang-du and his daughter run for their lives but suddenly the thing grabs Hyun-seo and disappears back into the river. The government announces that the thing apparently is the Host of an unidentified virus. Having feared the worst, Gang-du receives a phone call from his daughter who is frightened, but very much alive. Gang-du makes plans to infiltrate the forbidden zone near the Han River to rescue his daughter from the clutches of the horrifying Host.

Deleted Scenes, Director Bong Joon-Ho Reflections, Commentary with Director Bong Joon-Ho.

Languages: English and Korean, Subtitles: English (Closed Captioned) and Spanish.
