From Stephenie Meyer (author of THE TWILIGHT SAGA) comes THE HOST, a love story set in the future, where Earth is occupied by a species who erase the minds of their human hosts, leaving their bodies intact. Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) is one of the last surviving humans who fights back, risking her life for the people she cares about most - Jared (Max Irons), Ian, (Jake Abel), her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury) and her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt) - proving that love can conquer all.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..that sounds like it should work (really!), but it never does, largely because the story is as drained of energy as are its moony aliens..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..this is pretty silly stuff, "Twi"-lite if you will, but played with maximum solemnity, no discernible humor and minimal excitement..”
by Tom Charity [CNN.com]
“..the movie is arid, inert, inept, dumbly preposterous, and endless..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
