FRIGHT CLUB: THE HOST

August 31, September 7 & 28
FRIGHT CLUB: THE HOST

As demanded by Olympia! The contemporary horror classic returns! 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 have 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. Celebrated director Bong Joon-ho (OKJA) mixes horror, comedy, and family in this breakthrough, genre-bending hit.
Dir: Bong Joon-ho / 2006 / South Korea / 119 min

“It’s a comedy, it’s a vivid evocation of a dysfunctional family that comes together in crisis, it’s a wondrous homage to the courage of children, it’s a biting critique of the government.” – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post

“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, RogerEbert.com

“What a pleasure to watch an ambitious horror film that not only frightens but also surprises and engages us completely with its artful shifting of tones.” – Claudia Puig, USA Today
