I’ve been talking about “The Host” (also known as “Gwoemul”) for a while now. I still haven’t seen the film myself, but the stuff I”ve seen from it looks freaking amazing, and I have several friends who have seen it and swear by it. Well, it looks like they’re not the only ones who dig the Asian horror/monster flick.
The Host has just taken 6 awards at the Korean Film Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Sound Effects, Best Special Effects Best Lighting and Best Cinematography. Yup, that’s right… monster flick won best picture. Imagine that. Anyway, this is a film I’ve been salavating to see and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
For those of you who haven’t heard of The Host yet, here’s the amazing trailer. Man this is so cool. Magnolia Pictures will release The Host in the United States in early 2007.
