It’s believed that, once inside a body, all memories of the host human are gone. Some few free humans remain hidden from them, forming a resistance group. When an alien Seeker captures a girl named Melanie and puts a Wanderer in her body, she hopes to find out where the remaining humans are gathered, but Melanie, a strong fighter able to converse with the alien in her commandeered body, convinces the Wanderer to say nothing. Disappointed by the lack of progress (though suspecting an empathy for the human), the Seeker informs the Wanderer that she’ll be removed and placed in a new host while she herself will enter Melanie. With human lives at risk, Melanie convinces Wanderer to run away and hide out with the humans, but finding them doesn’t mean they’ll allow an alien presence among them. Jared (Melanie’s boyfriend) wants her dead, but Jeb (Melanie’s uncle) wants to wait, and Ian, tasked with guarding her, finds himself siding with Jeb. As Ian begins to fall for Melanie, a strange love triangle develops, with Ian wanting Wanderer (inhabiting Melanie’s body), Jared wanting Melanie (imprisoned inside her own body), and no one knowing any way to separate the two without killing both.
Plot: A parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder. Instead of carrying out her race’s mission of taking over the Earth, “Wanda” (as she comes to be called) forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans.

Hit or Miss
This movie you will either enjoy or hate to be honest. If you want something that is action-packed and filled with cool sci-fi moments do not see this movie. Yes the movie is sci-fi but it’s more about romance. It also is a tad slower.
However, the cast was fantastic and the script was beautiful. There were cheesy moments but it was still really sweet and well done. Basically what I am saying, is if you like romance with a twist go and see it! If you are expecting something like Gattaca, you will be disappointed.
I really loved the movie and felt it held up to the book. I usually hate movie versions of books but this was really good! If you like the book chances are you are going to like the movie. There are tweaks of course, but I thought they were mainly well done and helped get the same message across.
Unbelievably original movie is going to make a lot of people very happy!
Got to attend a special preview screening in DC a few weeks ago. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect… I enjoyed watching the Twilight movies, but I wouldn’t exactly call myself a Twihard. The Host though is … AWESOME.
You get all the stuff you’d expect from Stephenie Meyer – like some very hot dudes and a very unique romance… this time it’s a love “box” rather than a love triangle. It’s hard to explain but it’s genius. I can guarantee you won’t have seen anything like it!! Alien invasion + hot people trapped in caves = the most inventive kissing scenes ever.
As well as all the Twilighty stuff, you also get amazing performances – Saoirse Ronan is the ultimate kick-ass chick. She’s got her pick of the men (Max Irons and Jake Abel, who are absolutely going to be stars after this) but there’s so much more to her than that. She’s an independent, powerful warrior woman. Jennifer Lawrence, watch out!! And why is no one talking about the kid who plays Saoirse’s little brother yet?! He is adorable and so good. There is a scene where I teared up watching him. William Hurt was surprisingly hilarious as Uncle Jeb and Diane Kruger is deliciously evil as the Seeker.
The movie also has a pretty thrilling sci fi plot, breathtaking scenery, crazy vintage cool costume design, and some seriously good-looking chrome cars. This is a quality movie. I guess that has something to do with Andrew Niccol being the director – from The Truman Show to Gattaca to In Time, he seem to make very stylish, smart movies.
I haven’t read the book (though I just bought a copy with the movie poster on the front!!) but I hear the movie sticks very closely to the novel. I think Twilight fans are going to be very happy. I think The Host novel fans are going to be very happy. I think a lot of people who didn’t expect this movie to make them happy are going to be very happy!!
Movie is out March 29th, and I am seriously counting down the days until I can see it again.
PS Stephenie – if you’re reading this – hurry up and write the next book so we can have our sequel! I have to know what happens to these characters. Hoster for life! (are we calling ourselves “Hosters” or what ;-)?
