Wrapping up the horrorday celebration with this doozy of a film. The consequences of inviting people to a family dinner can be dire, especially if those people are possessed by otherworldly forces. That is what we see in Hosts.
The plot sees a family having dinner on Christmas Eve, and decide to invite their neighbors over to join them. The night quickly gets out of hand when they find themselves under attack by unnatural beings who test the family beyond their limits.
So this movie is going to punch you right in the feels many times because there are very heart-warming and emotional moments showed. All framed around this supernatural attack that is happening. They don’t understand how or why it happens. And once things are set in motion, it gets brutally gory.
Another point is this may not be exactly supernatural after all. There are hints that it may be alien in nature, especially with how the people become possessed. What are left of the family that have survived so far find out that they may not be surviving for much longer. It’s a very bleak ending and makes for an almost depressing holiday horror film.
Come on in if you enjoy possession films with heapings of gore. But be warned, this movie will absolutely play on your emotions. If you are still curious, this is currently playing on Shudder if you decide to watch it for yourself.
