The Host Movie Synopsis
Parasitic aliens called “Souls” have invaded the Earth and have begun to possess the minds of humans.
Melanie Stryder’s body has been inhabited by a Soul named Wanderer, but she refuses to fade away.

Melanie is trapped inside Wanderer’s mind, speaking to her mentally, when both decide to set off and find Melanie’s loved ones.

The Host Movie Review:
Something refreshing from the usual vampires, this time it’s aliens. “Nice and gentle” aliens. Who want to take over Earth and live “cohesively” IN human. It was a pretty interesting to watch two souls living inside a body. It makes me think about ghost possession. Does the same thing happen too? The human soul locked inside and unable to control the body?
The love triangle, or rectangle (so they say) made me keep watching. Wanda the “jellyfish-like” alien likes Ian while Melanie loves Jared. How do they co-exist- with 2 boys sharing 1 physical body with two souls? I did cry, nearing the end, when one rather die then live without the person she loves, even though she had lived for millions of years.
The Host will be in cinemas from 28th March 2013 onwards.
