Critic Quotes:

A horror thriller, a political satire, a dysfunctional family comedy, and a touching melodrama, Bong Joon-ho’s The Host is also one helluva monster movie.” – Jim Emerson, Chicago Sun-Times

“The movie pops up out of nowhere, grabs you in its big, messy tentacles, and drags you down into the murky depths, where social satire coexists with slapstick, and B-movie cliches mutate into complex metaphors.” – Dana Stevens, Slate

“Bong still offers a powerful rejoinder to his Hollywood counterparts: Anything you can do, I can do better.” – Scott Tobias, A/V Club

“The Host is a loopy, feverishly imaginative genre hybrid about the demons that haunt us from without and within.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
