The Host, more than a monster movie, was an eye opener. Despite the presence of a fictional creature, the terror is felt just as the same as audiences connect with the story on a deeper level than its sci fi premise.
All in all, I was impressed by the way Parasite unpeeled its layers. It made use of classic filmmaking techniques to deliver an amazing piece of cinema that served up something new. A twist within a twist. Scary, exciting, entertaining and unpredictable, it had everything going for it – a great story, a strong cast, on point execution. The rest is gravy.
