If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I love Bong Joon-ho's 'The Host.' I found it to be an incredibly affecting monster movie. The opening rampage through that riverside community in Korea was, by itself, worth the price of admission. When I heard a sequel was in the works, I was (cautiously) excited. The first footage for 'The Host 2'has just landed on line and features another great monster attack, this time on the highway. The slo-mo shot of the kids running from the beast may seem silly, but given how poorly things tended to turn out for children in the first movie, I was not laughing. Stick around after the fade to black to see some interesting behind-the-scenes side-by-side comparisons of shots to illustrate the work of the special effects team.
'The Host 2' does not currently have U.S. release date
