WATCH: Scene from The Host sequel

November 21st, 2012 by Marc Comments


The Host is getting a sequel and frankly, we’re really ok with that…

The original movie, called Gwoemu in it’s native Japan, came out in 2006 and, frankly, is the kind of movie most Amerian studios wish they knew how to make. A very human story as a nightmare unfolds when a giant mutant monster comes out of the Han River and snatches and devours people.

It’s a powerhouse of a movie. With some of the best effects you’ve ever seen, full of tension, sorrow, human drama and damn good scares. And it’s getting a sequel. If it’s being directed by  Joon Ho-Bong again is unknown but what we do know is this, this footage is, once again, stunning…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
